Just Sittin' Here . . .

Here's another card made with a single stamp, as in "Pete," from Whipper Snapper Designs. Isn't he cute? I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils, used Gamsol odorless mineral spirits to blend the colors, and then decided what I was going to do to finish the card. I ended up choosing Moonstruck, Clover Meadow, and Sunny Yellow cardstock, three colors that I most likely wouldn't have put together otherwise. I used chalk to emulate "sky" and think I ended up with a pretty cute card.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Moonstruck, Clover Meadow, and Sunny Yellow cardstock; Black ink pad; Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics and Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments stamp sets; Whipper Snapper Designs "Pete" cling mount rubber stamp; Outdoor Denim mini brads; Spring chalks; Stampin' Up Word Window punch.

I just got home from bowling. It was fun . . . maybe a little too much fun tonight . . . enough fun to make me very tired. About last night, I was OK by the time I went to bed, and I was much kinder to my stomach today. Lesson learned. Thanks for all the sympathy, even though I knew better and didn't deserve it. Work was great today, even though I was so busy and dealt with so many different people and issues that I can't even remember right now what the heck I did. Hopefully, it will all come back in the morning so I can pick up where I left off. I'm trying to figure out that new project management software as I go along, too, and right now, it's taking longer to deal with the software than it takes to complete some of the projects. Like that makes sense . . . I sure as heck can't see that it's going to make me more productive.

I hope you had a good day, and like every day, thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow night. 'Til then, take care!

Adorable!

Glad you are feeling better! Can't wait to see what else you have cooked up.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my post. You know how to make a girl feel good! Ü Your comment allowed me to find a goof up, so I reposted with the words if you wanted to take a peek.

What a cute card and I love the colors. When you posted the other night about eating all the nuts, reminded me of when I was a teen and ate a whole box of malted milk balls. To this day I cannot stand them.

Your card is sooo cute. I've recently just found your blog and have been stalking it daily. Your artwork is FABULOUS. Your nut escapade reminded me of when I ate an entire bag of starbursts in one sitting. Boy, was I sick.
