A Beautiful Day

here in WA state.  Actually the last few days have been really nice.  Even put the top down on my miata and took a spin - love the wind in what little hair I've got-lol!

My craft room is finally cleaned up - now I just have to do some major organizing.  Look what I found when I was picking up!

This is one of my favorite cards.  I used barely banana card stock and dsp strip, oval scallop punch, handsome hunter, tango tangerine and yoyo yellow classic ink.  The stamp set is Inspired By Nature (one of my favorites).  It is a three-fold card with a band that fits around where the two sections meet.

One of my hostesses wanted to use the sock monkey on a card.  As much as I like the sock monkey, it's hard to come up with unique ideas.  I used chocolate chip, riding hood red, whisper white and barely banana card stock; basic black classic ink and various markers.  The cupcake and pennant are popped up with stamping dimensionals and corners are rounded with our corner punch.  The buttons are from our latte collection with gold cord and attached with glue dots.  She was very happy with it.

This was cased from one of SCS's galleries.  The only thing I changed were the colors.  The card stock is tangerine tango, kiwi kiss and barely banana.  I stamped with classic basic black, used various markers, scallop punch, crimper and flower assortment designer brads.  Thank you to the original designer.  It's was perfect the way it was so I didn't change it.

Type at you later.

Do I have to pick a favorite? Okay, I guess I'll have to go with the Live with Passion card and belly band. Too bad a belly band doesn't look that great on me! Just kidding! Those are terrific.
