Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope that your weekend was a fantastic as mine was.

We took our dog to the Kentucky Horse Park for some exercise. Now, for those of you who know me ~ my dog does not exercise. She basically sleeps and eats. Sometimes more eats than sleeps. But it was such a beautiful weekend that we thought we would take her for a ride. She loves to go for rides. As a matter of fact she is the reason why I drove out here from California instead of fly. And 2500 miles under her and she still loves to ride.

Well ~ it was not the best thing for her. Really, she only walked about 500 feet and she was done for. That night she pretty much laid down and did not get up. I was really worried about her. Finally after laying next to her til 3:00 in the morning I got her to get up and go to bed. Sunday you could see she was a little sore, but she was getting around better. And as I sit here and type she just climbed the stairs to be with me. It's a killer moving muscles you have not used in a while. I know ;)

Yesterday I did sit down and create a few things. You probably want to look at those and not my mumbo jumbo talking ~ so here they are.....

I am in a little rut right now with stamps. Every time I look at what I am bored. Now, I have plenty of stamps ~ even plenty that have not even seen an ink pad ~ but I'm just bored with everything. I am trying to go thru and use what I have so I won't buy right now. I made a promise to myself that I will go thru all my stamp sets and make a card with them before I buy something else. Trust me, it's so hard.....

But that brings me to this card.

I don't think I ever remember using this set. I'm sure that I have but it must of been a while ago, a long while ago.... Remember it? It's called Farm Fresh.

I wanted to make some quick cards for the Peddler's Mall and this is one of them. And this is what I did.

The base card is Bordering Blue. I stamped the flowers with Versamark from my Victorian Frame set. I layered a piece of Garden Green cs that I tied a piece of string to then the image on top. I stamped the image with Bordering Blue ink and colored it in with my pencils and gamsol and layered it on to a piece of Ruby Red cs. Quick like I said.

Now this card I made with the same set, Farm Fresh but for the background images I used my Fresh Fillers set.

I stamped the Fresh Fillers set on to the card base Certainly Celery, then on to the piece of Not Quite Navy. I stamped the images from Farm Fresh with Mellow Moss ink and then Ruby Red ink. I cut out part of the image in Ruby Red and layered that over the Mellow Moss image. I added a couple eyelets and layered the image onto a piece of Ruby Red cs that I made a tag out of. I added a piece of ribbon and I was done.

I hope to get some more cards made today and I'll be back tomorrow to show you! Have a wonderful Monday!

Very Nice Joani. I know what you mean about being bored with what you got.. It's so much fun getting new stuff then when you get it you don't get the time to play with it and it sits and sits.
