Just For Fun!

Hello sweet bloggy friends! I hope your week is gong well. Mine seems sort of frantic! I have a long to do list and I'm  running around doing all sorts of errands. But when I get home and start marking things off my list, it doesn't get any shorter or look like I'm getting anything accomplished. Craziness I tell ya!!

To give myself a calm moment or two I sat down to make a card. Did you ever want a stamp set really bad, it's forever out of stock and then when you finally get it you have a mental block? That's what happened to me with this darling Mama Elephant set. I finally managed to pull this little number together. But I really want to play around with these sweet images some more, love them!



I have lots of Pretty Pink Posh goodness on this card too! I layered up three of the zig zag Borders I Dies onto the tag from the Stitched Duo I Dies. I stamped and colored my images then added a bow made from yellow Chevrons Twill Ribbon ~ love that stuff! Finally some Mossy Green (4mm & 6mm) sequins as accents! I must admit I've been hoarding this October Afternoon paper for a long time. There's just a small piece left, but I do love the way it looks here! And you see my card base? It's Bazzill: Watermelon cardstock. I picked up a big package at Tuesday Morning for $2.99, great deal huh and I love the color!

Well I guess that does it for me. This is a just for fun card, couldn't find a challenge for it to fit into, but that's okay. I was a great way to relax! ~Lisa



**Well blow me down!!! Thank you my sweet friend Darnell my frantic head didn't register that my new stamp set and new paper actually qualified for her NBUS challenge!! Off I go to link this up!**

Lisa I can totally empathise with you on all fronts! I was actually saying to a friend last night that I am sure there are only 18 hours in a day now, not 24!!!
I love this sweet little card, and what a nice sentiment with great whimsical font!

Um, hello, over HERE! You can enter it into my NBUS Challenge, Lisa! It sounds to me like every single thing on this card is NBUS!! And it's so adorable! When your mind went from blank to idea, it came up with a fantastic one! The design is simply perfect for that sediment and that sweet pouty face!! Hugs, Darnell

Love this sweet card. The perfectly colored girl, pattern papers, and zig zag. Just wonderful. I often order something, wait and wait impatiently for it to arrive, open it up....and it sits on my desk because I can't remember what I was going to do with it!

Lisa that happens to me all the time. Both the craziness of getting things done and the list not getting shorter. (Feels like my current situation) and wanting a stamp set and blank.

I love this sweet card. It's just precious. Your cards always make me smile.

Tracey McNeely said...

Lisa she is sweet as can be. I love your tag and you coloured her perfectly. Great patterned papers too!

Kim Heggins said...

This is just too sweet. I love that adorable little girl.

Kelly Griglione said...

Oh I just love that stamp set too ... utterly charming and adorable!! AND, you are on to my Tuesday Morning OBSESSION. It's where I get all my patterned paper. I saw the $2.99 8.5x11 Bazzil paper there too! Did you notice how the frosted 12x12 Bazzil papers are $1.99, while the "regular" 12x12 papers are $3.99? Strange.
