JilliBean Soup, Stampendous, Unity Stamps and Operation Write Home
Good Sunday morning - I had lots of fun shopping yesterday and got some new supplies. Of course, several 6 x 6 pads jumped in my basket - I don't know how they do that. This paper is one of the stacks - It is from Jillibean Soup. The collection is called Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup and it has the most yummy pastel colors in it.
Sitting on my design mess (table) was this little monkey waiting to be colored - lucky for me - an easy color. (as you can see - I forgot to color the chest - kinda looks like she has a white Tshirt on underneath her tutu - it is now colored brown) so this card was born with the help of the weekly sketch from Operation Write Home card blog - Stars and Stamps. When I cut with my Silhouette - especially borders - I cut extra in basic colors so I have them when I want to create. I like the difference in sizes in the scallops on this border - gives a different look. The card seems naked to me and after I had it finished - I should have tied a bakers twine bow at the top - but I was not going to tear the card apart.
I just mailed Kris a box of 70 cards and I tried to send children, masculine, and normal (whatever we consider that) and hoping to do that for my next box. So this card I believe would be for a little girl. I love this sentiment from Unity Stamps. I think I will go add a little bling in the center of the flower. I am also going to put my sticker on the back and line them as I make the cards - it will help when it is time to mail them in.
Everyone have a creative day. Since I played (shopped) and then played yesterday - I must get some work done around the house - but I will get my Oldie Moldie card or cards made for tomorrow.
