Happy Hello!

Good Morning Everyone! I hope that you are all fairing well this week. We started out with cold and rain yesterday and I thought I might have to turn my heat back on! Brrrrrr is all I could say. But today is starting with the sun trying to peak out and just a little breeze so I am hoping for some sunshine and then I can sit back and relax in my lounger for a bit later.

But I will get on with my little card here. I started by stamping Chasing Edwin that you can find over at 7kidscollege fund. I used momento tuxedo black because I still find this to be the best ink for the best results- along with the neenah cardstock (I love this stuff!). Of course, I used my copic markers to color him and Tab over at 7kids is getting in the copic refills this week so don't forget to get them before you run out! Do you see my stitching? LOL- well I guess you can call it that- I did it on the machine but I tell you I am not good with the sewing machine. Yikes! But I always love cards with stitching on them so I have to do them now and then and it does add to the card I think...... maybe? The flowers are prima, I used a couple different variety for this card. I then added a little bit of stickles to the clouds to make them shimmer.

Just a note: 7kids college fund is having 50% sale on all wood mounted stamps, just use coupon code WOOD50 AND 10% off all shimmerz with coupon code SHIMMER10- both through June 8th!

Well I hope that your day is beautiful, as beautiful as it is in this card for Edwin!
