Gloomy Friday

Today's a gloomy day. As I am writing this I am looking out the window it's gloomy, rainy and dreary.....

But what else brightens my day but talking to you all and stamping!! So on to the cards :)

I can't get enough of the little cow set's that theangelcompany™ has right now!! They are so adorable.

This card was pretty much a quick and simple one.

The base card is Real Red. I stamped the card with the cow print from An Udder Birthday with my Versamark pad. Then I took a piece of Basic Black, layered the cow print paper that I got years ago from Darcie's, added the red polka dot ribbon and adhered it to the card. I then stamped the little cow and colored it in with pencils. I sponged some Real Red around the edges, layered that on to a piece of Basic Black and glued that to the card. Lastly I stamped the words "an udder birthday" in black ink on the lower right corner and I was finished! See, told you quick and easy...

Here's another card that I've made with my new stamps. This is the Spring Dream set. Kinda funky flowers with that cool paisley print and some awesome swirls!!

The base card is Apricot Appeal. I layered a piece of DP from the Rustic Chic pad that I sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges. I then took another piece of DP from the same collection, sponged around the edges and layered on to a piece of Chocolate Chip cs. Before I added that to the card I added the little tag that say's 'happy birthday' from the Everyday Events set. I used my word window punch to cut out the saying, sponged Only Orange ink around the edges, added an eyelet and threaded some black hemp to attach it to the card. I then stamped the flower, colored it with pencils and sponged around the edges. I layered that on to a piece of Chocolate Chip cs and added it to the card. It was a little different at first, but the more I look at it I think that I like it.

I'm sorry that the word window punch was turned in the picture ~ I actually just noticed that.

I also wanted to share a RAK card that I received from a blogging friend in the Netherlands! You know how cool it is to get mail from far away. I just love to see things that others are doing.

This is from Joan over at Scrapmum. If you have a second take a peek at her blog. It's kinda cool! And it's neat to see how she has it in two different languages!

Thanks a lot Joan, it made my day!!!

OH! And one more thing. You may notice a little box at the bottom of my posts. Well that is something new that I thought I'd try. It's called click comments. You can run your mouse over the icons and click on what you think. It's something faster if you are not feeling like leaving a comment. Just something that I'm trying for now. Just enlighten me :)

Well, I'm off for now. Gonna go play with some stamps and then head off to the doctor ~ Mom's got another appointment. She's got arthritis in her hand and really does not know how much longer she may stamp with me ;(

Have a super day! It is what you make it!!!
