WSC101 - Of the Earth

Today's card is a thank you card that I created using Beate's Weekend Sketch, I've had this Of the Earth stamp set sitting around and I hadn't even used it until today.
The colors in this card look a little funky for some reason but the card base is Rich Razzleberrry with a 5 1/4"x 4" panel of So Saffron on top, then a panel of Mellon Mambo. I used the Perfect Details Texturz Plate on the upper portion of the Mellon Mambo panel and stamped the saying down low. On top of the Mellon Mambo panel I added a 3"x 4 1/4" piece of So Saffron and a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper. For the flower I carefully inked up just the flower and buds with a Mellon Mambo ink pad the used a Old Olive marker to ink the stems and stamped. The bird was inked up in Mellon Mambo, stamped and punched out using my square punches.


I don't know what it is but I seem to be in a funk lately, maybe it's the weather maybe it's not getting enough sleep at night but I've had no mojo. Our youngest son has been keeping me busy lately, last week it was a run to the emergency room because he had bitten off the end of a plastic pen and started choking on a sharp piece of the plastic and then swallowed it. He's OK now but it sure did give us a scare. That and I'm wondering who is going to be potty trained first our 2yr old or our puppy, so far it's a close run.

Gorgeous!

Sooner or later the potty training thing will happen...for my little guy it seemed to be later, so my fingers are crossed for you. Now that he is in pre-school though he has had a few accidents...

Hugs, Kelly
