You're my sunshine day and night...oh, what a difference you've made in my life...

Happy Monday, peeps!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The boys had friends over to spend the night last night, and they wore me out! Talk about loud...try four boys ages 9 and 6, plus four dogs and a video game...YIKES! So, needless to say, I hid in my craft room (along with one of the dogs) for most of the afternoon and played. Which was great fun...I haven't had a marathon stamping day in a long time. I went in armed with new goodies and a notebook full of sketches and went to work! So there'll be lots to see here for the next few days.

The first sketch I chose was Fall to Layout #51 from the Clean and Simple blog. This is a blog I stalk each week for layouts and inspiration...love it! Here's my card:
Isn't that a fun sketch? I just got some Jenni Bowlin mini papers, so I decided to use this sheet music pattern from the Tangerine Dream collection. Yummy, no? I cut and embossed the piece with my Labels One Nestabilities and then sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Because of You set in Versamagic Jumbo Java ink. After I adhered the die cut panel to my 4 1/4" square Soft Sky card base, layed the die on top and pierced around the outside edge, using the die as a template.

To finish off the card, I chose 2 prima flowers and sponged them with Jumbo Java & Sahara Sand Versamagic and sprayed them with Oyster Glimmer Mist. Once they were dry, I added a button from my stash tied with crochet thread and adhered it all down to my card. Super easy and fun!

Well, that's about it for me today...don't forget to check out Verve's Christmas in July sale details HERE. Have a fabulous day!
