I have yet more Easter Elzybells stamps that I have not even inked up yet but this might be the last one for a while. Maybe. Anyway, the letters on this image are much smaller than the SPRING one so there was no way these were going to get cut out! I colored with Copics, of course, and added some sparkle with my Sakura stardust pen. The center panel is sponged with Robins Egg Versa Magic. The paper is once again For Peeps Sake from Imaginisce, the green being the flipside of one of the pieces. The ribbon is probably from Michaels. The ladybug is from another sheet of paper from the same line. I just used my 1" circle punch and sponged the edges with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid and popped it up a bit. The patterned paper has texture and sparkle to it already so I didn't add anything else. The base card is from DCWV.
Just wanna give a shout out to my LSS Your Happy Place! You can check them out online. Thanks Vikki and Terry for leaving such nice comments on my blog! Will see you guys tonight!
And now for the mud. My 2 year old, Sean, was "helping" daddy wash his truck. What he was really doing was jumping in the mud puddle that formed at the end of the driveway while DH was doing the truck washing. I laughed so hard when I saw his face...I said, stay right there, mommy needs to get the camera. He was a very good poser! I have several but I think this one is my favorite. My SIL said in some of the pictures he looks likes a soldier from Saving Private Ryan, ready to do battle! I had to share...I think he's so cute! My 4 year too...but I didn't get any pictures of him that day. Some other time...because I know you are dying to see him, lol!
And thank you too to everyone who has posted such nice comments about my photography! I finally signed up for webhosting and have a domain name, so now I just have to figure out how to create the darned thing. I am using MS Frontpage which should be easy, but somedays I am seriously technically challenged. Especially when I hear "mommy" and "he hit me!" every 15 seconds.
Wait, one more thing! Do you know what an Uncrustable is? Those frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that are round about the size of a donut? Well, my kids like to eat them frozen. Less messy for me I say! So, Sean takes his into the livingroom to watch tv and next thing I know he's grabbing my hand pulling me shouting "oh no, stuck!" What...? "My sammich stuck"! Where....? Oh God.... "In there"! Okay, so you all know where he's pointing right? Yep, the VCR. I thought that only happened on TV...are you kidding me?! Well all I can say is that it was a blessing in disguise that the sandwich was frozen because I was able to pull out the VCR and tip it forward and bang it out. It promptly hit the floor where Sean proceeded to retrieve and eat it.
Whew, fun day.
