Let's see, I watercolored the stamped image....as you may know, I LOVE to watercolor! LOL For all the circles I used my coluzzle. Overall, it is a very simple card. However, I think it turned out so pretty!! All soft and springy :-) Kinda gives me the warm fuzzies!! I hope ya'll have a great warm fuzzy day!!!

Good Morning!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!! As always I am looking forward to the weekend!! LOL How many years to retirement??? LOL Anyway, on to todays pictures! I was supposed to work on a simple 8 x 8 scrapbook page for an upcoming party last night. However, this is what I came up with! LOL Waayyyy to tedious for the party, but I had so much fun putting this together that it turned into a two page spread!! I think it turned out sooo cute!! Just about all the animals have pop dotted pieces and then they were pop dotted on the page! I tried keeping the layout neutral so it could be used for a boy or a girl...which is why I used the natural hemp twine instead of ribbon. Don't you just love the monkey swinging from the twine on the second page??? LOL I took several pictures; however, I couldn't get one without the bird and gater looking washed out. The bird was stamped in bashful blue and the gater in river rock...maybe because the colors were light?? They do look great in real life!! I was hesitant about purchasing the Jersey Shore Designer Paper (so not my colors)...but I am so glad I did!! I hope you like it!!! Have a great day!!! :-)

Good Monday morning! I am a bit draggy this morning (like most Monday mornings) :-) Isn't it always hard to go back to work after a nice relaxing uneventful weekend? LOL Well, I better get going.....
Here is todays card! I think I finally figured out why my pictures were coming out so dark. However, if I could just get them to be a bit sharper... Anway, it is hard to see in the picture but the flower is embossed with Iridiecent Ice Embossing Powder. Very sparkly and prettier in person! I hope you like it!! Again, thank you for your kind comments! You ladies are just too sweet!! Have a great Monday everyone!!!

I love the carousel notes...now if I can only find my matching brass template!
