Bunny Slippers!

Hello Sunday Scrappers! Hope you're enjoying the last day of the weekend. We had wanted to get to the pool today but it looks like it's going to rain--yucko. We had a wonderful evening last night having dinner outside at our club and watching the fireworks on the lawn--the weather was perfect, food was good & catching up with friends is always fun. The kids ran around the lawn with friends and ate way too many popsicles--can you say "sugar high"-lol!! I hope everyone's holiday weekend was great too!

I get to spend time in my scraproom today--yippee--my dh is putting up organizers in our garage finally! We've been in our house 2 years and the garage is finally getting organized! I'm not helping because I designated that my hubby's job since I was the one who had unpacked & organized the rest of the house when we moved in. Gotta have him do at least one room, right? So I don't feel at all guilty about not helping--I've got my own stuff to do, like finishing my projects(with my new Sarah Kay stamps) and doing laundry!

My card for today encompasses 2 challenges/sketches that I've wanted to do. I got my new MFT stamps yesterday and couldn't wait another day to use them, so this set is called "Bunny Slippers" & I love it. Those that know me well, know how much I love my jammies and slippers. Most of my neighbors have seen me in both (outside with the dogs, getting mail, watering my flower pots)--I wear slippers all year round and I love comfy jammies, so I just had to have this set. The sketch is from the Ismaki Challenge Sketch #26 and it worked well for what I wanted to do w/ this set. All the cs & dp is from PTI--I adore their dp so much, especially this color set. I paper pieced pretty much all of the stamp except her skin--I love to paper piece because I think it adds so much to your card/design. (If you're not sure how to do it, SCS has a great tutorial on it here) I'm entering this into the contest for the July MFT Ambassador Challenge #2 which was to make a card with paper piercing (not to be confused w/ paper piecing :)). I paper pierced around the sentiment and the inside of the card. I don't always decorate the inside of my cards, unless I know I'm going to send them and I have someone in mind who might be getting this soon :). I just added 2 strips of the PTI cs & dp and the paper pieced bunny slipper image--so cute! I like the look of monochromatic cards so much, hope you do too!

**I didn't win the Caardvarks Challenge this past week, but was a favorite honorable mention :) I'll try again this week--you can see the new challenge here. **

I also have to add a #11 to my top ten--I can't believe I forgot to add my Scor-Pal to the list--I use it everyday and love it! Oopssee! The website has awesome projects and templates too, so check it out!

I'm working on about 5 different projects right now (cuz' I'm ADD like that--lol), so I need to get going. Have a wonderful afternoon!

**PS--I'm almost at 5,000 hits and you will want this blog candy for sure (maybe a Magnolia stamp & a Sweet Ebony stamp plus some other of my fave things)**

Additional products used: Nestabilities, SEI buttons, embroidery floss, dimensionals, glue dots, Copics
