happy Monday...

Happy Monday! Call me crazy but I actually like Mondays. They're filled with lots of errands but I love that feeling of accomplishment as I check off all the to-do's.

Todays card is a very simple 10 minute card. Perfect for a busy day. I stamped the flowers from Lizzie Anne Designs Garden Inspirations on a kraft card in Stazon. I went in and added a bit of aqua watercolor around the images. Then I went in a added touches of highlights with a white gel pen.

To speed up this and other projects, many times when I first get a set, I'll stamp the images out on post-it notes. I cut them out and store them in the LAD clear cases. This way when I have a project that calls for masking such as this one, I already have a mask on hand. When I'm done with them, I put them back in the case for another project.

supplies used:
stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs (Garden Inspirations)
cardstock: Prism

Ok, you're officially crazy...and the only person I know who likes Mondays. Maybe I'd like Mondays better if I didn't have to go to work, and could stay home and create wonderful cards like this one you've posted. LOL

Wendy, your card is beautiful! I love the kraft paper. I have some and haven't used it yet. Lynn make a card with kraft today too.

You are so organized to make masks of your stamps. Great idea!

Great job! Thanks for the inspiration to get out my paper and play.
