What an absolutely glorious afternoon! I truly hope the weather is just as gorgeous wherever you are today. It truly feels like spring here (82 degrees!), the sun is out, and the sky is bright blue without a cloud in sight. I've got to enjoy it because the forecast is for winter to sneak back in later this week.
It's a holiday here in the US, and we're celebrating MLK Day.... Which also means I get a lovely day off of school. I have filled my day off with reading, stamping (of course), some cooking and soon to be baking, laundry, and a quick run to a Jewish deli to satisfy my lunch craving. :)
The card I have to share with you today is a double challenge. I loved this week's Mojo Monday sketch and knew immediately I wanted to use some of my new Verve goodies on it. Enter Emery the Elephant. Isn't he adorable?! I knew I had to have him the moment he made his sneaky peak debut. Which transitions nicely into the second challenge... Verve's Diva Dare for January (formerly the Project Parade). The challenge this month is to create a baby-themed card, project, etc. Well, with my new Verve stamps, this was easy! I combined Emery with a sentiment from To the Moon and some stars from Starstruck. The stars had swirly tails attached, but I just cut them off.
I stamped Emery twice, cutting out his head on the second one to pop up. I colored with him with some copics, and then stamped a tiny star from To the Moon to place on his tummy. I covered all three of the stars with Cinnamon stickles for some sparkle. I am so in love with how this card turned out! The roomie liked it so much, she's already claimed it for a cousin expecting a baby boy. Which means I'll have to stamp something on the inside as well (she always checks, silly girl!). Good thing there are some cute sentiments in this set, as well!
I hope your Monday is off to a great start! Thanks for stopping by!
