This is the Day!


Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I know I did!  I had a chance to play with some new goodies...I have been doing some shopping lately!  I am really disciplined for a long time and then BAM!  I just have to treat myself to some new stuff!

This card is not for any particular challenge, but just for fun!  I used some papers from Fancy Pants called Park Bench...this little 6x6 pad just sort of jumped in my cart when I was visiting the new Hobby Lobby several weeks ago, LOL!  I paired it with a new stamp set and die from Papertrey called Inspired Lord:


Isn't that die beautiful?!  I mounted everything on a Crumb Cake card base, and added a few sequins; honestly, the paper and diecut are so pretty, I just didn't feel it needed anything else!


I stamped this image on the inside; it is from a new-to-me company called Right at Home, and the set is called Color In Sentiments:


I used a blender pen and Marina Mist ink to color it in in an ombre style!  And here is my sweet partner in (shopping) crime, Debbie!  We attended a stamp show in Wilmington, DE, met a few friends, saw lots of stamps and cards and even got to do a make-n-take!  Thank you to Lisa at Right at Home, who took this photo.....Debbie and I were too busy gawking at all the goodies to think about taking any pictures!


Have a blessed day!
