It's Monday Again???

tart & tangy, stampin up, stamping up, stamps, birthday cardHi everyone! I can't believe it's another week... whew!! Where did September go? It flew by!

I am waiting for the holiday season though, it's one of my favorite times of the year... seriously, I will probably start listening to Christmas music in hiding around Halloween time... haha!

Anyway, my first card today is for the Featured Stamper challenge from yesterday over on Splitcoast Stampers. We had to pick a card from Terry's Gallery and CASE it. We had to change at least 2 things. I ended up changing almost everything, but I stayed with the basic idea of strawberries lined up on the main panel. I changed the colors, slightly changed the layout, and the stamp set. Here is Terry's original card!

Card Details:
Paper: Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Real Red, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Summer Picnic Dp (SU!)
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Tagger's Dozen (SU!)
Ink: None, I used markers
Accessories: SU markers (SU!), Real Red Striped Ribbon (SU!), Small & Large Tag Punches (SU!), Brad (American Crafts)

I broke out my Like it a Latte set to do this awesome round card! I haven't used this set in a long time and it is just too cute to gather dust!

I used the Wintergreen dp because I thought the colors paired with chocolate chip would look awesome!

The marshmellows are colored in with a Sage Shadow marker!

Card Details:
Paper: Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Wintergreen DP (SU!)
Stamps: Like it a Latte (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate chip, Sage Shadow (SU!)
Accessories: Ribbon (Satin Sensations), Sage Shadow Marker (SU!)

That's all for today! I hope you get off to a wonderful start to the week!
