I've got another fun day ahead of me today. I get off work earlier on Sundays so my mom and I will be heading to town in the afternoon for our annual trip to the Hallmark ornament premier. We each have our series that we collect, I'm a snowman and fairy girl while Mom loves Snoopy, and until last summer we had never missed a premier weekend. I think we are both doubly excited for it because of that... it's another big milestone after the whole ordeal of her illness and long hospital stay.
Ok, so considering we are mid month already I figured it was time to get a card made for the July sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl. I've been running around so much lately I knew that if I waited any longer I'd probably forget and miss out completely. I also really wanted to color up Tobie and Tia from the Beach Day Buddies set because I have actually had them stamped up and waiting on my desk since last summer. Oy!
Tobie and his little crabby friend were the first ones to make it on a card, I took the sketch and flipped it upside down so that it would work better with his seated position. That sandy beach looking paper they are sitting on is sooooo old but I'm really glad I snagged what I did on sale back in the day. I never used it when I was scrapbooking but once I moved to cards I don't think I've gone a single summer without pulling it out and using it on a card or two... love it. Sure, you can color and stamp your own backgrounds but I think that is why I'm slighted addicted to pretty papers, if they can save me all that work this lazy crafter is a very happy girl. ;)
Alrighty, time for me to scoot.
