Good Monday to You!

Has it really been a week since my last post?!! OH MY!! Things have just been busy!

I'm still struggling with this "bug", although I feel so much better!! Thanks for your prayers!

This is my last month with the Dirty Dozen on SCS...a moment of silence please...
I took advantage of Lloyd being out of town to stamp 24/7 and create! My mojo was in high gear and I'm almost done with my gallery!! Woohooo!!

I was also asked to be in charge of awards and sponsors for the Ohio State Fair Llama Show, so I've been swamped in papers, phone calls...learning the ropes! Anyone want to sponsor a class? haha

This card was done for my Monday challenge with some of my make a Mother's Day card. This image is a "new to me" company, Inque Boutique, I found at Crafts 2000. They're large sets for under $5!! It's colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil and airbrushed with the Spellbinder's Labels 3 in place. I also dry embossed the Labels 3 which is hard to see in the picture. The ribbon was attached to the narrow piece of cardstock and run through the Cuttlebug with a border folder...I learned that from my technique buddy Mel (she is one creative gal!!)...some Martha Stewart punches, a sentiment from Artful Inkables, and my card is done!

I hope you have a Wonderful Monday!! Looks like we'll have another day WITHOUT rain, what is that...2 dry days in a row? Woohoo!! The llamas were beginning to quack!!

Thanks for stopping!
