Celebrate Your Day!

Good Morning everyone! It's the weekend! I hope that you all are able to stay cool and enjoy a relaxing day! I really wished I could have slept in a little but here I am - up at the crack of dawn! I was out late last night stamping it up with my bestest buddies Sherry and Becky! Well, Sherry had to leave a little earlier than I did but we had a fabulous time! I needed to get some new cards done for the blog and so we were in Becky's stamping studio stamping away! We all accomplished a good amount! I will be showing you my creations through next week. Well, I am going to attempt to show you through next week. Becky showed me how to set my posts so that while I am gone (next week) they will appear for me! Cool!! Now I just hope it works!! Anyway, that will start on Tuesday. Monday will be my last 'live' post. Which means that I am going to try to make it back to Becky's again tomorrow to make a few more cards to post while I am gone. Anyway, all that blah, blah, blah to let you know that I am excited to share what I created! And they were all from sketches!! I didn't even really copy! You will have to excuse the color combinations. I seemed to really have gotten stuck in the earth elements! They are my favorites!

Today's card could go for a 'guy' card, I think. I don't know how men feel about ribbon. But the ribbon is black (a guy color). But you could replace it with hemp or linen thread if your guy wouldn't go for the ribbon. I really liked the way it turned out. And it was pretty easy to put together! It is probably hard to tell from the photo but I stamped the horse in Creamy Caramel on the Creamy Caramel piece (over the celebrate) and then repeated the stamping without re-inking to make it look like it was running. Cool, huh! Otherwise, it is pretty self-explanatory. If you have any questions please let me know! Enjoy your day!
