it's a good day...

Hello friends!! Wow... can't believe it is already the first of August!  Time sure does fly by!  In a few days I'm going to have some fun news to announce here on the old blog and I can't wait to share it with you!  But in the meantime I have a little card to share that I made for this week's Wednesday Sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.


After taking a look at the sketch I decided that I wanted to use my MFT Chalkboard Greetings set for the card.  As I was pulling out my paper cutting I saw a piece of red polka dot paper and decided to use that, as well.  One of the elements in the sketch looks a bit like a piece of washi tape so I pulled out my collection and decided to use some tape that has aqua and red hearts on it.  I used the die that coordinates with MFT's Vertical Greetings set to die cut my panel and then stamped it with the sentiment using SU!'s Real Red.  I stamped the sentiment a second time in SU!'s Pool Party and trimmed out the words "day" and "good" and popped them up on the panel.  The red polka dot paper was matted using Pool Party cardstock.  I partially embossed the main panel using my Swiss Dot embossing folder and then adhered all the elements.  I finished off the card with a little horseshoe die cut from white cardstock using the horseshoe from the MFT Country Charms set and a bow tied from red bakers twine.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! pool party; SU! red polka dot paper; Stamps:  MFT Chalkboard Greetings; Dies:  MFT Vertical Greetings & Country Charms; Twinery red baker's twine; Washi Tape:  Impress; Swiss Dot embossing folder
