Have a Lovely Day


Hello, I hope you are having a great day! Today’s card all began with this fun but slightly challenging photo this week over at Just Us Girls.  Lisa really made me put my thinking cap on for this one.  After a few days, I had an epiphany and remembered that years ago I had a digital stamp that was a swing. Luckily for me, it was still on my computer. I came to realize I actually downloaded it back in 2006 and it’s from Bugaboo Stamps.  They are still going strong, and have a huge variety of stamps, and I have linked up their site for you HERE.

As for the other details on my card:  I used Copics and Colored Pencils as my medium.  I sponged the sky using Oxide Ink and my MFT stencil. In fact, the rest of the supplies are all MFT.  I hope the green cloud stencil looks like the treetop that the swing is hanging from.  Hubby said NO, but what does he know? I did some paper piecing too.

The variety of cards inspired by this photo from the Design Team is impressive over at JUGS this week…come check them out.  Nanc’
