Eat something cute!

Happy Saturday, friends!  I'm excited to share this card with you today because I've found a new stamp company that has images right up my alley!  I stumbled across 2 Cute Rubber Stamps in my blog travels and I don't usually order on a whim, but Heidi's stamps are SO cute (2 cute, even! lol) that I had to place an order right away.  :)

I can't tell you HOW I got this little turtle (not for a few weeks, anyway) but he's a digital image and you can pick him up in her etsy shop.  I strongly encourage you to check out her shop if you like cartoonish images like I do.  :)  I colored my turtle friend with Copics (and you can tell when you zoom in that I used the wrong kind of cardstock, so some of the green ink spilled outside of the lines) and decided to go with a happy rainbow of sauces on vanilla ice cream.  :)  The sentiment is Darcie's and it just seemed to go really well with the image. 

The sketch is the most recent one from Clean & Simple Stamping:

The papers are all DCWV except for the pink cardstock and orange gingham which were in my scrap pile.  I added a few gem brads not only to balance out my card, but because the DT for 2 Cute Rubber Stamps has a challenge going on to use bling.  Here's another shot of the card- I was trying to get the gems to look lit up (that's always so hard for me!).

I hope your weekend is off to a great start this morning!  This afternoon I'm teaching a card class at the nursing home by request.  I went 2 weeks ago and couldn't get any participants because the activity that was concurrent with mine was to go outside and I couldn't compete with that, so I headed home thinking I would just go back to the nursing home in the fall- my card making class would be better for the cooler months since it's a good indoor activity.  I wasn't upset, I just wanted to offer this class if people were interested.  So anyway, I had resigned myself to coming back in October when my mother spoke to a woman who said she only had one card left and wanted to know when I was coming back.  LOL!!  I'm glad to hear she's been using her cards and she's a really sweet lady, so of course I agreed to go back- I just hope she doesn't have other plans when I get there!  hah!  Anyway, thanks for bearing with my babble, and thanks for stopping in!
