Hello friends! I can't believe it's Thursday already! I only have one week left of my summer vacation before I go back to work! My new classroom is all set for my new kiddos and I'm a little unsettled about this whole move of our 5th graders to the Middle School. But I have to make the best of it! On to my card.
Yesterday was my aunt's birthday and of course a card did not get in the mail! I have been making mostly birthday cards, so it's not like I didn't have one ready to mail....I just didn't get one mailed. I did call her and wish her a happy birthday so she knew I was thinking of her. So as I sat down last night to make something, I thought I'd make her a new card...something just for her. I started by straightening out my "new" stamps that had not been put away and I forgot about this quirky little set from Paper Smooches that just makes me smile.
Perky Plants (such a great name for this set!) and the sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler, also from Paper Smooches. I wanted to use some vibrant colors, so I went with Lauderdale paper pack from Basic Grey and Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo cardstocks from SU. I colored the image with copics and added some Star Dust Stickles to mimic water sprinkling out of the watering can. I made the main image a tag and used some PTI ribbon to tie it off. I added the two melon glitter dots to finish off the card, which follows the Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week. I cannot believe I finally got a card done in time for this challenge! I'm usually late using them!
