I love long weekends....

Good Morning friends.  I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend.  I have had so much fun hanging out with my kids, a few friends and stamping.  Can you believe it - I actually got about 6 cards done!  That is amazing for me.

I have a card to share with you that features an adorable image from Paper Pretties, who happens to be sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches this week (be sure to check back tomorrow for the sketch).  I printed off a couple of images because I wasn't quite sure which one I wanted to use - so I did one for TMS and one because I was just having fun.

This adorable panda bear  is Pasha Panda.  I had so much fun coloring this image, it was so easy!  Pasha has so much personality in just that little face, I didn't need to do a whole lot of work.

My card's layout came from a great sketch over at Sketch n Stash.  Love the sketch.  The stash part is paper I haven't used in a long time and the flourishes are from a Cricut cartridge that only stays in my Cricut so I can use SCAL.  I cut two different types of flourishes which are perfect to play along with Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge.

I think my card turned out really great!  I hate taking pictures in the daytime though.  My craft table faces east so I get lots of bright sunshine in the mornig - its nice, except when taking pictures.  I hope my card looks better on your monitor because this one is super cute.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Kraft, Garden Green
Paper:  Just Chillin' Collection (Making Memories)
Copics:  C8, C10, R02, R11, W-2, YG17, YG67, YG95
Stamps/Ink:  Poppies & Greetings (SNSS), Tuxedo Black (Memento), Barely Banana, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your day.
