Have a SWEET day....

Good Afternoon!!!
Today I have the pleasure of sharing another
card using a stamp from Elphine House!
(If you didn't see the spotlight on them on Elisabeth's
blog you need to go and read about it ~ so sweet! Make
sure to go back and read from the first day!)

Okay now onto my card! This sweet image is called
Apples for Mommy!  I think he is so cute!!
(I have followed the challenge at Stamp Something and they
want to see something  punched!)


I had this strip of paper left that I wanted to use from Fancy Pants
and it has blue and purple! Two colors I don't use that
much but thought they would look nice with a white background.
Everything was distressed again with my trusty crackle paint!
Here is a close up of the image ~ which is colored with distress ink
and twinking h2o's.


I have also added some cheesecloth. My punched items are
my Magnolia Flourish and the scalloped border which is PTI.


Papers ~ Fancy Pants, Kraft CS
Inks ~ distress inks (brushed Cord., Dusty Concord and faded denim)
and twinkling h20's (Just Peachy, Golden Sand)
Accessories ~ Crinkled ribbon ~ etsy, flowers ~ WOC

The layout was inspired by the Sweet Stop sketch but I swayed a bit!!
That is it from me today!!  Thanks so much for
stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous week-end!

My oldest went to theatre camp this week and tonight
is her performance! I can't wait to see how she does as
she is a pretty conserved and shy little girl!! LOL
