Life is Better

Happy June everyone! And a good Monday morning too. Hope you've had a wonderful weekend.

I actually made this card initially for the June home page challenge for the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. The challenge was to make a summer card.

Also, over at Cute Card Thursday, their Challenge # 62 is: Bit o' Bling. "Bring out your bling, any jewels, gems, pearls on your creations!" So I've added some half pearls and rhinestones to the card and made it my entry there too.

I've used another newly-acquired Magnolia old image stamp, Tilda with Skipping Rope. Hmm.....I thought summer, schools are out, kids are at play, fun fun fun (for parents too I hope). So here's the card.

I was going to use piece of string for the skipping rope, but I couldn't find it. All I could find was my embroidery threads and they didn't look thick enough. I know I've got a stash of strings and cords somewhere in my craft room, but the room is such a mess that I don't know where I've put them. Time to do some cleaning and organizing there!!! I did the card inside this way.

Have a wonderful day!

Stamps: Magnolia #225 Tilda with Skipping Rope, Cloud 9 Design clear stamps Simple Thoughts - Laughter.
DP: Chatterbox Sunny Pinwheels, Cabana Dots and Cabana Stripes.

She's adorable, Norma! It's perfect for summer! I just love that image, and I think your floss worked just fine. If it's any consolation, my scrap area is exactly the same way. I found some stuff last night and went "ooooo...forgot I had that!". LOL! Great card!
