Happy Monday or not?


Happy Monday.  Well is any Monday happy?  Hahaha.   I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.   This weekend my daughter started on her first commission.   She is painting a Super Mario Bros. mural in her Godmother's laundry room.   She is so excited.  The outline is finished and next week the painting begins.   I will keep you updated and pictures will be posted.

Well speaking of artsy girls.   Simply Betty Stamps has a new line of Back to School Teen Scene stamps and Artist London reminds me of my daughter Jennica.   She loves to draw dragons and she has a passion for sweets.   Cupcakes and ice cream are her weakness.  I had to make something with this image.   

Isn't she cute?!   Totally my Jennica.    Her hair is even wavy but she hates it.   LOL!  I actually made a HUGE card.   It measures 5X8.   I have no idea where I will get an envelope to fit this card.   Maybe I can get one from the store.   Just kidding.  I used Echo Park Summer time paper and stickers. The colored card stock is bazzill and the white card stock is Georgia Pacific.   The bling on the ice cream cone was from the dollar bin at Michael's. Overall,  I really like the way this card came out and it's a perfect representation of my Jennica. Don't forget to check out the what the other design team members created. HERE
