Merry Monday and Bo Bunny
Happy thursday - we had a Cinco de Mayo party/potluck at work today. Yummy - I probably should not eat for several days. I made a new bar cookie recipe - it was a big hit - and it was so easy to do. I will have to share someday coming up. Stay tuned.
My card today (which has been done since Tuesday) is for the Merry Monday challenge - a new sketch every Monday to help you get your Christmas cards made - I missed last week - I was a little bummed but did get one done for this week's sketch.
I had never used this set of stamps before - it is from TPC - one color stamping - sometimes that is all you can handle when you need to make holiday cards. No coloring - just stamping - I knew the paper I wanted to use - but unfortunately I could not find that paper - but I did find this old grouping from Bo Bunny (this probably should be an Oldie Monday post). Love the old fashioned colors in the grouping - Worked well with the Dark Brown Colorbox Chalk Ink I stamped the sentiment and image in. I dicut the image out with a spellbinder. Forgive me I did stray from the sketch - I moved my stripe more to the left - not much was showing. The image and sentiment are pop dotted. Added a May Arts twine bow to finish the card off.
Thanks for stopping by - I need to go clean/clear - I have an 18 month old guest coming tomorrow night - so need to get things put away. Have a good evening.
