Hey Gorgeous

Yesterday I struggled to come up with a card for today.  I was on Pinterest.  I was on Instagram. I was just not getting anywhere.  Have you had times like that?  Anyway, I went through my 12 x 12 print paper from companies other than Spellbinders and FSJ and ran across some great paper from Authentique called Ingredient Three.  One side has a great pattern and the other has cows and pigs. (I got this paper from The Paper Collage in Peoria, AZ just west of Phoenix.) That got me to thinking of a fun stamp set by RG Avenue that a good friend gave me called Out Loud.  It has 5 different farm animals, 6 sentiments, and a frame. So, here's what developed.

This is a very simple card but I love the cow and sentiment!  This is only the 2nd time I've played with this set but it is pretty cool.  I do have hundreds of stamp sets and I sometimes forget what I have!

I used my Stardust Clear gel pen on the sentiment and the cow's eyes for a little bit of bling. I used my FSJ Color Burst pencils to color the Holstein and barn frame and FSJ's Blue Lagoon card stock for the card base.  Are you surprised that I used NO die cuts??  Shocking!

I did have to work on birthday and mother's day cards for this month.  April through June have the majority of events that I need cards for.

I've shared these cards already but I have now finished the insides for the event.  A couple of them have multiples but I didn't include them.  I have about 10 cards ready to go. Now to gift wrap a couple items and get all ready to mail!
