The Best Things in Life!

The sentiment on this card is so true isn't it? The stamp is part of a line of several stamps with funny, clever sayings for only 1.00 by Inkadinkado. They can be found at Joann's and online at several different stores. Anyways, for this card I used my prisma's and OMS to color the image. Since I am still waiting for my Staz-on ink to get here I used SU's Choco Chip ink to stamp the images and I was surprised to find that they worked great! No smearing at all. I used my stickles to decorate the treats, and as usual you can't tell from the pic but the treats are 3-d. The white brads are from Joann's, and the ribbon was from the Offray ribbon outlet in Hagerstown MD. This was a fun cad to make, and I think it will help to brighten someones day. I like having cards like this on hand to send to a friend. I can't believe it is already Thursday! I know I say this all the time but man time goes by so fast. I also wanted to mention that my baby boy Cam said his very first word yesterday...."Hi". It was so cute!! he is also cutting his first tooth, AND he can almost pull himself up into the standing position. My little pumpkin is growing so fast, but it is a joy watching him learn, and grow. Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Very cute card Veronica!! I just picked up some of those stamp sets as well-can't wait to use them! Cam is growing so fast! I can't believe he's talking and trying to stand already! Also, thanks for sending my punch so fast! Just got it and can't wait to use it! Maybe if baby Alex is still in my belly by the weekend I'll be able to get some crafting done. :)
