Who's Got Big Ears and Floppy Feet?

Pin It


Happy Monday, Crafty Stampers ... hope your Easter weekend was wonderful!

Today's card project was created for my birthday card stash using this beautiful, FREE digital stamp from The Paper Garden:

I colored the snowdrops image with Copic markers and Spica glitter pens then stamped a sentiment. I adhered dotted DP to my card base, added some bright green brads, some recycled ribbon, and then matted my focal image on bright green paper. Quick and dirty!

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo; for all of the exciting product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, on Saturday, I was hangin' around at Sheila's while she prepared for her annual Easter dinner. I was in charge of staying out of her way ... and keeping Reid-the-Wild-Child occupied.

So I made small talk with Reid:

"So, Kiddo, who's coming to your house tomorrow with big ears and floppy feet?"

"Oh," Reid answered, "I think that's Uncle Brian, right?"

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!

~Hugs,
