Hi guys.
As you can see I am running super behind this morning, so I am going to get right to my card for the day.
Of course I had to make a card with some of my purchases from this weekend. So I grabbed my Cheeky Howdy and the some of the new ribbon that we picked up at Michaels and went to work. We found this ribbon with the little cherries on it and I just had to get it as I knew that it would make a cute card with Cheeky. I also used a great trick that my blogging friend Amy does. I used the cover sheet to some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket paper - Delovely. I have to say that it truly works out so well and gives it a lot of different colors. Yes, all this color is a little out of my comfort zone, but I really am happy with how my card turned out. lol....
See what you think. Sorry to be so quick, but I have to buggy. Work and sickish kids that don't want to go to school today. Fun,!
Have a great Monday and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

You can't even tell you used the cover sheet from Delovely, it's just like the paper and it would be a shame to throw it away especially when you can make such a fabulous card as this with it! Cheeky Howdy looks perfect with it and that ribbon is too cool...what a find!
Hope your week goes by quick for you and the M&M's! :)

Oh Lisa, this is so sweet. I love the way you colored her and the coors you used are just perfect for summer time.
I purchased my ScrapOnizers at Unity Stamps but they quiet selling them.
Here is a link for the Storage cases
and here is a link to the folders I use
I cut my folders in the fold crease and make them into 2 pieces. These folders are pretty thick and very strong and I get better use out of them cut. That way I can lay them on top of each other. And I don't have to worry about stamps falling out or trying to keep the folder down while I close the cases. They are strong. This system works great for me with either foam mounted stamps or with the glue I use.
