The Best Day Ever

 
 
Good Morning Friends and Stampers,
 
Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time to start a New Challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  It's our favorite one!  Anything Goes!!!!  Whooo Hoooo.   I love all these Cheeky images from The Greeting Farms, Laura has a great selection in the Loves Rubberstamps Store.  
 
Today I felt like making a one layer card.  I love these Magnolia Background images.  Each collection has some scenery or background in it.  I like to mix and match them with my favorite images.  Here Cheeky Geeky is sitting enjoying the SPRING weather.  I told you I was over winter, lol.  I airbrushed the background with my Copic Markers and colored her up with Copic Markers.  Adding two stamps together is easy to do.  I just inked her up and stamped her on the paper.  Stamped her again on scratch paper and quickly fussy cut her out.  I used removable adhesive runner for the scratch paper cut out and placed it over the image.  Then I inked up the background and stamped it over the covered image.  Then I airbrushed the sky and grass and ground.  Then I removed the scratch paper cover and colored her up.  The last thing I did was ink up the sentiment and viola, I have a one layer card perfect for sending in the mail with no extra postage.  I am normally a very layered card maker, but once in a while I just like to make these. 
 
Well it is Tuesday and back to the grindstone here.  How is your week going?  I was excited to see some New Items in the Loves Rubberstamps Store!!!  They are just the incentive I need to get back to work and get in some over time, lol. 
 
Thanks for checking in on me,
 
Holly

Adorable! The sentiment reminds me of an episode of Spongebob (yes, I watch it with my kids, and sometimes, er, on my own...but don't tell! LOL) -- "The Best Day Ever." If your son watches, you'll know the song!

Happy New Year, Holly!
