It's Your Day

Welcome Tuesday! I am tired of being in bed. So last night I managed to get the front of a birthday card done but ran out of steam so I had to finish this morning. Still blowing, coughing and generally achy all over with lots of headaches but I hate lying around doing nothing. So today I am going to stamp, because that always makes me feel better.

So I used MFT Happy Hippo stamp set. All the images and the sentiments are from this set. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out after I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. The die cut windows were done with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares. The background designer paper is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. For the sentiment, I embossed it with white embossing powder and then die it with MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips. I used the MFT Sketch challenge as inspiration:

And in keeping with one of my New Year's resolutions (finish the inside of the card when you do the outside), I've also completed the inside of the card with with same stamp set.

I am entering these challenges:
I seem to be running out of steam again. It must be time for a nap. Thanks for stopping by to visit. I promise, no germs will be sent to anyone. LOL! Make is a super fun day!

This is adorable and perfect for our Shades of Blue Challenge over at Path of Positivity! So, you don't do many pink and orange cards for guys....hahahaha! I'm like you with colors, most of the cards I do for guys are in browns and blacks. I guess I need to get out of that rut! Thanks for sharing with us and adding some color insight! Katrina

I'm with you about thinking blue for men's cards - don't know why either!

Love your card and I completely understand how stamping and card making makes you feel better.

Thanks for joining us at the Path of Positivity Challenge.
