National Sunglasses Day

Today is National Sunglasses Day! Who knew? The sad thing is I can't wear mine today because I have had a bad case of pink eye and can't put my contacts in. So I decided to make a card to honor the event since I can't put mine on!

I dragged my night of navy pad across the white cardstock to give it a denim effect. It got a little too dark because the pad was so juicy it kept getting stuck and I had to keep going over it. It doesn't show up well in the picture either.

I just love the daisy bundle! I stamped off twice with the night of navy to try to mimic the flowers on the DSP. I absolutely love the paper! I have actually ordered extra packs of it! Can you say paper hoarder!

I am looking forward to playing with both sets again. I'm sure there is a National Daisy Day sometime! Thanks for stopping by!

Weathered Boots

Did you ever have that stamp set that you buy because you love it, and yet it sits in your craft room unopened? Sheepishly, I confess I have a bunch of those. So when I got the new paper Wood Textures, I thought it was time to pull one of them out! I just love the boots in this set. I don't know if it is because they remind me of my daughters boots from when she worked with the horses at a local camp or I just love the look of weathered boots. But when I saw the paper, I thought of this stamp.

I used the dry brush water color technique to color them. I really like how it turned out.

I used a different color of the same paper for the chair in this card. I love the distressed look it gives it. This also uses another new paper stack called Color Theory. I just love all the new paper that has come out! Of course, I admit, I am a paper hoarder!

Thanks for stopping by to look! And may all your tomorrows be as happy as today. Have a great weekend.
