Happy Friday!!

Yippie it's Friday! I just love the weekends. Time to sleep in, hubby makes breakfast & just all around family time. Yeah, I don't get too much computer time ~ or crafting time, but I sure do love family time!

Today is supposed to be a nice day. The last nice day, we're supposed to have a few showers or so over the weekend. They are even saying that we might get some snow Monday ~ how weird is that?

I thought that I'd share this card with you first. I just love it. Those cows are too stinkin' cute!!

This card is made from the What's Moo set. The card itself is Basic Black. I then layered a piece of Pixie Pink and a piece of DP from the Uptown Girl slab. I then added another piece of Pixie Pink to a piece of the black from the same slab. You can't really tell, but the black from the Uptown Girl paper looks almost like linen. I then tied a length of ribbon around those layers. I stamped the image and colored it in with pencils and gamsol and sponged Pink Passion ink around the layers. I added that to a piece of Pixie Pink and Black and used pop dots to add it to the card. Well, there was no place for a sentiment panel so I just stamped the word "holy cow" to the left of the image on that layer and I was thru.

Yesterday I promised you a card made with the Stamp of The Month, well here it is. The set is called Goody Jar. If you look to the left of this post you will see all the stamps that come in this set.

When I first saw the set I was a little excited. You see I had a friend in California ~ the same one that claims she's perkier than me, but I know the truth (he he he) and when she left the placed that we worked together one of the guy's in the office gave her one of these. It was the first time I had ever seen a fish in a vase with a plant on top! Hmmm, I wonder if it's still alive??

Anyway, on to the card. For the base card I used Soft Sky and layered a piece of Blue Bayou and a sheet of DP from the Sands of Time collection. I rounded all those corners and inked up the left side with Bliss Blue ink. I stamped the images and colored them with pencils. I then inked up the edges with Bliss Blue ink, rounded the corners, layered that on to a piece of Blue Bayou cs & added a length of green grosgrain ribbon before adhering it to the card. For the sentiment I used a saying from A Wittle Bug. The saying said "thanks for everything" well I took the h out of thanks so it read "tanks for everything". I stamped that in Bliss Blue, layered it on to a piece of Blue Bayou cs, then layered that on to a piece of Gable Green that I punched with my Round Tab punch. I used my slit punch and made 2 slits in the paper and slid the whole thing into the slits. I then secured it with a couple of eyelets. Once I set the eyelets I then taped the whole panel to the card and I was done.

This set is so versatile. You can use it as a cookie jar, a vase or a penny bank. Right now it is only $5.95 with a $30.00 purchase! That's a great deal ~ tell me where can you get 11 stamps for only $5.95? If you'd like to own one as me how!

Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to show you some fairy and princess cards that I've been working on. Until then, thanks for stopping by and have yourselves a wonderful day!!
