Sweet Pea

I am so glad today is Saturday. My son was excited because that means Daddy is off work today. I am enjoying a rare moment of quiet as the two of them are at my mother-in-law's fixing her lawnmower, and the little one is taking her morning nap. Woohoo!

I thought I'd share this card with you that I made yesterday. I've been coloring images in the evenings while watching tv with my DH, and I was able to put this one together in no time at all! I love this little pea from Pixie Dust Studio. I actually made this card for their weekly challenge - to use green. I also used the sketch from Cardabilities challenge blog too.

Supplies are SU cardstock in Pale Plum, Eggplant Envy and Garden Green. DP is DCWV. Image is Pixie Dust Studio colored in with Crayola Twistables colored pencils and blended with a SU blender pen. I have to get something better to blend with though, but it worked ok. Stamping on the plum paper is SU Memory of the Heart, sentiment is PTI Mixed Messages. I also used a Fiskars border punch and a prima flower.

Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
