Lazy Sunday...


Usually, I don't spend a lot of time online but I did today. I also found time to put together a few things. I had first found the layout for this card on Sassy & Sweet Notes and I just loved it! I tweaked the size a bit and made mine a little larger so that I could accommodate the size of the stamped image.

On this card that I made for my upcoming new nephew who is scheduled to be born near Eastertime, I used one of my Riley stamps from Hanna Stamps and the It's a boy is from the Just so Hoppy set from Gina K. I colored him with Prisma pencils and OMS. The ribbon is from May Arts and I used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities to cut out the circles. Oh and I used a little stickles on the egg.

I'm sure he won't mind the pink bow on the egg or the glitter. Heeee!

On this one, I used what I had on my table. LOL The colors almost work together. I'm not entirely happy with this card, but as I said, this is a journey so they don't all turn out how I envision them. I think I should add a bit of colored cardstock behind the stamped image. Maybe I'll go back and do that later.

I used paper from DCWV, another Riley stamp from Hanna Stamps, some ribbon that I received in a swap on Swap-Bot, some prima flowers and a little green brad. I also colored these guys with Prisma pencils and OMS. I cut the circles with my cuttlebug and nestabilities. I really can't wait to get other shapes of these, I'm kinda tired of looking at all these circles. LOL!! I have the rectangles on order, but they're backordered 'til mid-March. Egads! I guess I can wait though since I have to and all!

Hope y'all have a good day!
