Challenge for a Sunday Afternoon and Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #29...

WOW, 2 challenges and "ONE" card... and both challenges are for Sunday!! That is a nice day to stamp, but I guess Thursday night will just have to do... ha!

To start off I used Lisa's Challenge for a Sunday Afternoon that was to make a "thinking bubble" on your card. What a "FUN" CHALLENGE Lisa!! I tied in the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my lay out. What was so nice is I used scraps of DP's in my stash which is such a nice treat! Going green... :)

On my last post, this card, a few questions were asked on how I got my image to look beaded up. My Upsy Daisy set is new and I have the old SU! markers so when I inked up the stamp with the markers and huffed on the stamp it beaded. This is how I got that effect... I need to sand the rubber to take the ink better. But I do like the look it gives!!

Sweet dreams everyone and off to bed I go soon... my P.J.'s are looking for me... LOL! Enjoy and thanks for popin' in! Make time to stamp!

SMILES... Michelle :)

Love the wavy striped paper with the dots. Really fun idea to give the bird a word balloon.
