Happy Monday!

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.

I woke up about 4 AM and kept trying to go back to sleep. It didn't work, so I got up about 5. I'm gonna need a nap today!

As long as I was up, I had to check out SCS for the newest challenge. It was there waiting for me, so I just had to try making a ribbon frame. Isn't it pretty? I inked up the stamp with markers and then stamped. The brown second stage is also embossed with clear ep. I distressed the edges of the white panel with my fingernail before mounting to the brown frame. The main card is embossed with a Sizzix folder my sweet friend Terri sent me! It came with four more small folders too. I'm so blessed! Thanks {{{{Terri}}}}. I am lovin' it.

I hope today starts off a great week for you! Thanks again for stopping by!

Hugs,
Karen



And, I have to show you the card I created on Saturday. I thought it turned out so cute! I took inspiration from a cute little teapot found here.

I cut the shape out using a template found on the internet, then water colored most of it and used chalk for the cheeks and ears. I used my markers to sharpen up the lines on the design, and a sharpie for the mouth and eyes. The sentiment is supposed to resemble an egg.
