Shirley and Terry from a La Card Monkey chose one of my cards last week, which means I get to be a GD this week! Here’s their fun sketch:
Terry assured me it didn’t HAVE to be a graduation card, so I went with more of an encouragement card, using one of the new In Colors, Summer Starfruit, some new papers from Cozy Cafe, and the Countryside truck:
When I first read the name of this color, I misread it as “Summer Starfish” and that just sticks in my head, so if you see me mistype it in the future, you’ll know why! I stamped this image in Stazon on some watercolor paper and colored it with various inks and my aquapainter:
I also “vintaged” the edges with some Crumb Cake ink and a lot of water to give it an aged look. The sentiment (gasp-I cut it apart to use it in two pieces!!!!) is from Blessings from Heaven. I don’t know what took me so long to get this set; my friend Darlene sent me a card with one of the sentiments on it, and I just had to have it! It looks terrific on this banner, stamped in Early Espresso, especially with that little apple that fell off the truck:
I love this unique sketch and I hope you’ll drive on over to the Card Monkey blog to play along with us this week! TFL!
This is a book I got from the library about a mother mouse looking for her babies; each page features an image with little flaps that fold down, and the mother doesn’t find her babies until the last page. Cassidy LOVES this book, but her fingers can’t quite get under the flap, so she grunts “UNH” on each page…..as if that would help those little fingers! So cute!
