Sunshine and Sunflowers!!


I just love this crafty industry...don't you?? Just when you think you've got it all figured out and you've found your favourite this or that and you'll never use anything else....someone else introduces you to something NEW!!! Aaah.

One of my fave 'students' at my classes is Angela! She is always thrilled to be hangin' out and stampin' away with all of us gals and she's just a bright, shiny presence! (It could be that she's just excited to have a day to herself, what with three kiddos all under the age of 5, but I like to think that it also has something to do with our super fun classes!) Well, at Sunday's class she introduced me to some new white cardstock...and I'm in L-O-V-E!! It's Neenah Smooth cardstock and she sent me home, not only with some stamped Magnolia images but also with a few sheets of the Neenah to try out!! Thank you, Angela!!

Yesterday morning I had a couple of hours to play before work, so I made this card!!! The image is Angela's and I ADORE it! I want it!! The best thing I find about this cardstock is that it's just a little bit smooth so it doesn't soak up the ink. So when I stamp something in Memento ink, it gives a nice crisp, clean, dark image, which I love! Also the Copic ink shows up nice and bright too!!

So I started with a 6x6 Chocolate Chip square base and the patterned papers are from the new Early Bird line from Cosmo Cricket! I matted and accented with Real Red and Blue Bayou. I used a Fiskars border punch on the side, added lots of Prima flowers with antiqued brads and added a High Hopes sentiment on Marigold Morning cardstock. I pop dotted everything and added a little bit of white highlights on Tilda's cheek with a gel pen.

Here are the Copic markers that I used: E00, R20, E43, E44, E47, BG10, BG18, YR21, YR23, R29, YG03 and G82!



Thanks again, Angela! I have a new favourite white cardstock thanks to you!

Well, I'm working all day today, getting back into the swing of things at the library after being off for a week. I've got lots to catch up on so I'll be busy, busy. Hope you have a good one!!
