Good Morning, sweet friends!
I hope your weekend was marvelous :)
As I look out the front living room window, I see overcast skies and lightly falling rain. And I seem to have caught my son's horrendous sore throat so I've been whispering around the house for the past 24 hours - which, of course, they think is quite comical ;) Not the best of starts to the first day of Spring Break, but that allowed me to sneak in a little craft time - YAY!
Always a bright side, right? :)
I was SO excited to play along again with the TAWS challenge ~ love, love these stamps and the challenges they have. This week's challenge Be Inspired #24 is no exception - my favorite color palette! I inked up Kitchen Gadgets 2 ~ what a lovely whimsical stamp set this is, I let the stripes be the first inspiration for my card and carried over the blue/pinks from the globes to use the flip side of the dsp - perfect! The sentiment, also from this set, is stamped right onto the paper and I popped up the paper-pieced mitt to give it a bit more dimension. The button was an after thought but he looks happy there :)
Here is the lovely inspiration photo:
As you may know, I love to take my pictures outside in the natural light, often in our small garden area. Look who showed up today to join in the festivities - a cute little lady bug! Thank you, Heavenly Father, for the small things and the beauty all around us :)
Enjoy your day!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
