happy birthday sunshine...

Happy Saturday!

I had a busy work week so I'm really looking forward to the weekend!

Sorry about the pic, I didn't use my tent and it's too dark outside to take a pic...

This lil card is chock full of fun:


I've been smitten with the vintage Stampin' Up Long Notes...particularly the ones in So Saffron.  They are 6 5/8 x 3 1/4.  I always seem to emboss a section of them too...did you notice that?

{Anyone have some in their stash that they wanna sell to me?!!!}

Everything has been loaded up on a Jenni Bowlin Journaling Card that has been matted on black cardstock.  

I used 3 different stamp sets:

Lawn Fawn partly cloudy
Lawn Fawn sophie's sentiments

and 

Green Grass Stamps You are my Sunshine

I did some fancy stamping with the sentiment as it is a combo of Lawn Fawn and Green Grass Stamps...the 'sunshine' is a partial from a Green Grass sentiment.

I'm still having fun with those A Muse Studio Clouds...and LOVE The Twinery's Maraschino!

I was inspired by the Lawnscaping Challenge #25!


They celebrated their 1 year mark on Monday...now how exciting is that?!

Any big plans for the weekend?  I'm looking forward to shopping with the girls today...although who knows how long I can last as I've been up since 2:30 am.

  24. Super fun and another happy card, Amy. I love the dimension and textures. You rocked it :)

    As for the burlap...I agree with you! I have only used it twice, but I discovered that my new Glue Arts ribbon adhesive works very well with burlap control and not being sticky all the way through the mesh...another issue I had besides the shedding :)
