{Happy Day}


Hello and welcome to my blog today! Today's card was a labor of love for sure, it took me ALL day. I was only able to work on it for a few minutes at a time but this evening when DH got home I was able to finish it. My card features an adorable stamp set from Stampin' Up! called "Picnic Parade". This is the first time I have ever used this set. Sad I know, such a cute set , but it is a labor intensive one since you pretty much have to cut each piece out. I colored the critters with Pro-Markers. The cute patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup "Dutch Mustard" collection. The sky background is an old piece of patterned paper I've had for years. I cut the grass border out with my Cricut, and SCAL software and then I sponged it with SU Old Olive ink to add some definition. I am so happy with the way my card turned out! Today I am playing along with a few challenges:

Wee Memories Challenge #46 - Woodland Friends

Dutch Dare Card Challenge #102 - Who's Who in the Zoo

Diecut Dreams Challenge #84 - Spring Garden

The Paper Players Challenge #37- Spring has sprung

                  Thank you for visiting my blog today!
