Happy Monday Challenge...

Good Morning!  Happy Monday and it is truly a Happy Monday Challenge over at Crafting with Deedee's Digis.  This week's challenge is posted and it's a fun one and one that is near and dear to our hearts.  It's all about friendship.  Create a friendship card and then mail it to a special friend!  Here's what I made...

I used images from the Deedee's Digis stamp set called Cup of Joy and who wouldn't be able to smile with this card.  The colors are happy and bright and the image is perfect!  Deedee did such a great job on this set, which is not surprising - she's an amazing artist and an amazing friend.

I even did something with the inside of my card.  It's funny, I show every card I make to my kids.  My oldest son always looks on the inside, too, which is usually always blank.  He fusses at me every time to do something with the inside.  Well, this time he starts to peek inside and then opened the card to find something there!  He was so proud of me.  LOL

Card Stock:  Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Neenah Classic Crest
Paper:  Sarah paper pack (Stampin' Up!)
Stamps/Inks:  Women of Life (Papertrey Ink), Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss
Copics:  G28, W-3, Y11, Y15, Y17, YG00, YG03, YR16, YR23
Embellishments:  Summer Sunrise ribbon (Papertrey Ink), buttons (my stash)

Not only am I playing along with the Happy Monday challenge, but I incorporated a couple of other challenges, too.  First, I got this great sketch from The Sweetest Thing.  Note to Karen - I hope you're feeling better.  The other challenge is from Crazy 4 Challenges which was to show off your buttons.  I don't know if you can see them really well in my picture, but there are 3 of them that started off white and I colored them with my Copics.  They sort of streaked a bit but then I started tapping the marker on the ink and it gave it the coolest texture!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a Happy Monday!
