Just Mucking About!!

While I was making this card, I thought "I almost miss gathering my eggs and mucking about in the barn" - the operative word being "almost""!

Since we have Jake this week, my son is gathering the eggs and doing the other "yucky" chores!! Thanks Andy!

This pretty plaid paper is from daisy d's 6 x 6 sidewalk chalk swatches (whew! say that 3 times FAST!!). There are 24 double sided pages and this week they are only $3.37! I bought them at Jacksonbelle Embellishments where everything is 25% off this week!!

I stamped and coloured the image from the Punny Farm stamp set at My Favorite Things, with my copics and cut her out with the oval nestabilities.

The dark purple cardstock was cuttlebugged with the texture embossing folder. I used this because it looks like my grandma's wallpaper and I find comfort in ANYTHING that could be my grandma's!!

That is layered onto that gorgeous coral cardstock that I bought at The Town Scrapper, my local scrapbook store - LSS.

I popped up the image, stamped on the sentiment from My Favorite Things and added some ribbon and some hearts. The hearts are from a heart punch I have and I used the coral cardstock again!

Edited to Add: Sharon (notimetostamp) posted a mini-challenge today using cuttlebugged cards - I forgot to mention that I entered this card in her challenge. I never know if the challenges on other blogs are for everyone or just design teams, but I LOVE my cuttlebug so I thought "well, I can't get fired"! so I just let her see it!!

Pretty easy card, I must say. I think I will send it to myself!!

    Yet another fabulous card. Love the colours again and the embossing really sets it off. nd (Kraftin' Kimmie's mom again)

  2. You should send it to yourself! Gorgeous! I love everything about it. Why are you telling me about a sale? I can't. I won't. I'm not even going to look. I'm waiting for craft day on QVC, and even then, I shouldn't be buying, but there is going to be a Cosmo Cricket TSV, and how can I resist that? OK, maybe I'll go take a peak, but I'm just going to look. I'm NOT going to buy. Well, not much at least!

  3. Nah, you should send it to me! LOL! This is beautiful! I love that plaid paper! So colorful...great job!!

  4. What a wonderful card!!! Your image is done so well, colored beautifully!!! I LOVE the CB'd background and YES, that mini challenge was open to all, no rules really, just BUG!!! I love looking at what everyone does with their Cuttlebug!!! This is fabulous!!! Thanks so much for linking!!!!
