I'm back with another post today - in the quiet evening hours again. It makes me love summer a little bit. Kids finally had their last full day of school and can play outside all they want without worrying about a night schedule. Yay! That is so much "work" and "stress" off of Mommy. I hated forcing them in when they need to be outside and playing! That's what kids are supposed to do. And I feel anytime they are willing playing outside instead of, say, being on Minecraft -- we are encouraging it! :)
I was in the mood to color with markers yesterday so I made a card for this weeks Designer Drafts challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog.
I used my "Party Posse" stamp set (still a favorite -- I decide favorites by how much fun they are to color since I am such a novice. Ha!)
This little turtle may be my favorite out of all the critters in this set. And, since Baby Sister loves turtles....this one will be perfect for her. I used scraps (including the chipboard shape in the background) from my CTMH Footloose kit. That kit had great colors! I stamped the turtle, colored him, then stamped on his party hat, colored it and trimmed it all out as one piece. He is adhered using foam tape to keep him out over the patterned paper - makes him stand out a little better.
I curved the sentiments around on my block prior to stamping and was quite please with how it turned out. Usually, when I attempt that technique, I just end up mad. =) (Who me???)
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
