Fun Friday

Grown with Love_2_Oct 2009

Fun stamps + Fun papers = A Fun Card. There is no lack of colors and texture here. The stamps are from Close To My Heart’s new Grown with Love set. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket’s Earth Love Mini Deck. There isn’t much to say. I stamped the tree with Cocoa ink, colored over it with a Brown Bag marker, cut it out and ran it through my Xyron before mounting in on my layered-paper card base. The “leaves” were cut from various paper patterns with a half-inch circle punch. I glued the majority of them down “flat,” saving seven to layer using foam mounting tape.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Cocoa cardstock; Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Mini Deck; Cocoa and Bamboo ink pads; Grown with Love stamp set; 1/2-inch circle punch; Sponge dauber; 3M foam mounting tape.

Happy Friday, friends! I hope, like me, you have had a good week. Do you have plans for the weekend? My nephew is getting married tomorrow. I’m excited about seeing my mom, sisters and brothers, and nieces and nephews again. Other than that, I need to catch up on some household stuff and make preparations for a little family gathering next week.Oh, and I’ve already spotted some fun sketches and a challenge or two I want to try, so most likely I’ll have something to show you. Whatever you’re doing this weekend, I hope you and yours are healthy and happy. And like always, thank you for stopping by. Later…

cute card. I can't wait to try out that tree. But it is not in the cards for this weekend. I have people waiting for items that I need to work on. and going to take my daughters to lunch tomorrow. Hubby says, "I'm not invited?" Nope, just the girls. He is tripping over that over lip. - grins -
