Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww...nuts!!!


I just can't stop playin' with those new High Hopes stamps!! All the jungle animals are just so cute! This card was made for a special request from Phebe, so I will be giving it to her tomorrow when we meet up for lunch!!

I started by stamping Ellie on Wausau white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured her in using my Copics. Instead of just boring old grey, I used a couple of different pale lavender markers for Ellie. I then used the Copic that matches So Saffron on the bow and the one that matches Wild Wasabi for the grass. I stamped the sentiment in the upper left corner and then stamped, coloured and cut out the bag of peanuts to add to it.

I broke open a new package of Uptown patterned paper by SU and used two different patterns. The card base is 6x6 in textured grey cardstock and for matting I used Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Almost Amethyst. I used some striped WW ribbon and pop dotted Ellie!!

Well, it's a very rainy day here in St. Thomas.....a perfect day to stay in and stamp, don't you agree?? Hahaha!! I do have to work tonight but then I'm off until Saturday! Yippeeeeeee!
