Hey There, Sunshine!

Hello friends!

Today I am sharing a special card I made for Miss Amy E! I was so happy when Amy won my give-away to celebrate my new blog redesign. It seemed appropriate that the gal who saved me a bunch of money by checking out her blog's sale mentions and discount sites would win the Michael's giftcard. When I sent it to her, I sent it in this card.



The background was used from the My Mind's Eye 6x6 designer pads. Does anyone else buy those $3 pads at AC Moore or Michael's? I have a billion of them because they have all kinds of great patterns and colors.

Then I took a complementary yellow piece of card stock and cut the edges with a special scissor paper cutter that I have. I took two different stamps. The elephant is an Inkadinkadoo stamp and the sentiment "Hey There, Sunshine" came from one of those $1 stamps from the Michael's piles.

I used my 3D Zots to make whole thing pop out a bit and we're done!

Speaking of Amy, have you been by her daughter-in-law's blog yet? She is spreading the word about Erin's design prowess because they are saving to adopt a baby and Amy would love to be a Grandmother! Won't you help with a donation to her website, The Silver Lining? There are so many ways to help! Make sure you check it out! Everyone deserves to be a Mommy. =)

 

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

  1. Love how all the elements work together! That's a great background paper and such a unique stamp. I haven't purchased those $3 pads, but I have picked them up and flipped through them MANY times!
