A Perfect Day!

Hello - well must say it was a difficult 2 days - my computer was not working properly and was driving me crazy so I had to take it in for repair - I was without my computer for 2 days and let me tell you that was not easy - I never thought I would feel that way - but I did surprise myself on how much I actually missed my computer. As I was not spending time on the computer though I was able to make another card this week. I wanted to use my new Memory Box tree die (just love this die) and thought my Penny Black stamps were a perfect match (I can also see those cute little hedgies having some fun under that tree in the future as well). I cut the die out of white cardstock and then used 3 various shades of green copic markers (G99, G85 and G82) to give the tree a more realistic look. I added the grass under the bear - I have seen others do this grass technique and always wanted to try it - it was fun to try and I am not disappointed in my first attempt of coloring grass. I added 3 blue copic markers (B0000, B000and B00 to the background for the sky. I layered some DP and cardstock and added some gingham ribbon and a couple of red brads to the top corners and that finished it off. After finishing this card and looking at it I saw in this card a perfect day (my vision of a perfect day - sitting under a tree on a warm spring/summer day - the only thing I would add would be a book in my hand and my dog at my side) Hope you get a chance to have your perfect day some time in 2012! Thanks for stopping by for a look and once again thank you so much for your very kind comments.

Your stamping friend, Debbie
