A Scene for Cute Card Challenge
How fun is it to make a scene - well that is this weeks challenge on Cute Card!
This was a great time to use another one of Alota Rubber Stamps. This is "Girlfriend Birgit", she is also named for one of the Alota Dt's. Just love all those shopping bags! For my scene I used Alota's "Park, Pond" Background. Love this one you can make it almost any season you would like. Mine is melting - Winter is ending but there is still a bit of snow on the ground. Ok so Birgit isn't shopping here in Texas...
Everything is colored with my Copics, now those shopping bags were just a bit plain... so I used my Rubber Stampede stumps and stamped some flowers and leaves on them.
For my card I wanted to use up some of the scraps from my card the other day, don't want to waste any of my new Making Memories Chloe's Closet papers, or the flocked dotted DCWV. I used the Martha Stewarts Scallop Double Dots and created a lace edge, the ribbon is part of the MM Chloe's Closet ribbon set. In inked the edges of everything with a light green ink. Because the background stamp is so large you really don't need much pattern papers. Now I love that metal clip! It too is an embellishment from MM Chloe's Closet, thought that bird was fun for the park.
The sentiment is also from Alota Rubber Stamps, and a friend that loves to shop is my kind of friend!
I am trying to get Libbie a Vet appointment, just for a check up and to get her baby shots all lined up... and also cuz my Vet is just dying to meet her! The last couple of days I have let her run around the house - you really have to be careful, she is like a fur ball under your feet. And I have no idea where she finds things and pulls them out to chew on. And oh my... she loves my laundry piles. I think she drug every sock out and all over the house. I'd pick them all up and come around the corner and they were back again. Too cute!
It is Friday - you planning your weekend? We are working around the property this weekend. Luckily the weather is suppose to be great, so hopefully we will get lots done. Hope you have fun planned and not work!
