Start each day with "whee"!

This is totally how I feel this morning- "whee"! It was pretty painful to be up at 5am to get to the airport for a 7:45am flight to Boston, but now that we are on our way it feels so good to really be on vacation! A few more hours (well, more than a few-lol!) and we'll be on Cape Cod smelling the cool salt air breezes and getting ready to eat lobster-yum! Get my sand chair ready!

I've had this Pure Innocence image from MFT for some time now and haven't had a chance to ink it up yet, but this cloud paper by Cosmo Cricket inspired me (see what happens when you leave a paper pack out on your desk?!). I'm not very good at making scenes, so this is my modest effort.

I started with a Kraft 5-3/4" square card base and layered on a 5-5/8" square of Very Vanilla. I added the sky and grassy green papers, with extra layers of green strips hand cut with fringe to make it look more like grass. I fashioned a fence out of a strip of Very Vanilla punched with a MS edge punch- I like how that turned out actually. The tree was hand cut from tree bark paper in the Cosmo Cricket "Mr. campy" set and punched leaves from Old Olive and Pear Pizazz using an old SU punch. The girl was colored with Copics and popped up on dimensionals to make her look like she is in the air.

The inside was finished simply with a strip of the grass paper and the cute greeting- whee! I'm going to mail this from Chatham when we arrive- we'll see if my daughter notices the different mail stamp and figures out we're nearby:)

Probably not too many cards from me for the next week or so, but hopefully lots of pretty pictures from the Cape!

Hope your day has some "whee" in it!

  1. I love this card!!! I am so going to have to KopyKat it. I just got this cute little image not long ago (it was sold out everywhere for the longest time), and love your cute scene.
