…You Bring Me Happiness

Good Sunday to all of my loyal readers!  As you all know, I’ve been in the mountains of Georgia enjoying the company of some of my dearest friends over the weekend.  I wanted to take time out to prove to everyone that I was actually up here getting some stamping done…it’s shocking…I know!  LOL!  But here’s the first card I'll be sharing from this fun-filled weekend (yes…I made more than one):

I borrowed these Stamping Bella images, called “Arthur and Annie”, from my bestie Jessica Diedrich…aren’t they AMAZING?!?  She was fortunate enough to meet the fabulous Emily Block on her trip to Winter CHA just a few weeks ago, and came home with these yummy goodies to play with!  I stamped the images in Black Ink and created a sidewalk for them to stand on using one of my Copic Multi-Liners.  The entire panel was colored with Copic Sketch Markers and I pierced the edges of the upper section using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.  I used a sentiment from There She Goes’ set called “Spring Fever”, and added three Red Rhinestones underneath it for some *sparkle*.  I paired the completed panel with a piece of patterned paper from my “i-have-no-idea-whose-paper-this-is” file. :)  After adding some Red Ribbon, a Kiwi Button with Twine, and several Dimensionals to the card was complete.

That’s it for today!  See…I promised that I would have something to share from my girls’ retreat…you’re surprised, aren’t you?  LOL!  Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I’ll see you all back here Wednesday with an MFT creation using their new sketch…I can’t wait to see it!  Until then…
