I've been Spotted, another Mama Elephant "Tiny Heroes" card, a busy Wednesday and a Simon Says Friends or Superhero Challenge

Hello my friends!! I am sitting her trying to wind down from my very busy day. I feel like all I have done since I left work today is drive.

Char had two different tutors today. She is presently being tutored in math and English for her exams. While she was at one of her tutor's, I ran to the gym to do a quick workout. I am trying to get that in as much as possible this week since I have eaten Whoopee pies for breakfast for the past two days. Sigh. There is only one left and I already know it is for my breakfast tomorrow and then they will be gone until I make them in the fall for work. (Work loves my Whoopee Pies so I bring them in once in a while for my department.) 

To top my night off, I had to take our dog to the vet. He has an ear infection!! I think it was from when I gave him a bath a couple weeks ago. Now he has to have ear treatments twice a day and he was not so thrilled with the first. I also gave him another bath when we got home because he was lying on the vet's floor. That grosses me out. 

Today I am sharing two things. One is the link to a scrapbook layout that I did last month. I used some Jillibean Soup paper and Jen Harkin asked if she could put it on the Bean Talk blog for her "Soup Spotting" post today. I was really flattered and of course I said sure!!! It is one of my favorite pages to date. 

I also wanted to share the second of my Mama Elephant "Tiny Heroes" cards that I created. I had a lot of fun creating a little "scene" in back of this one. 


I used my new My Favorite Things die to cut out the polka dot patterned paper and mounted it onto a top folding card. I then die cut a rounded rectangle and masked off a strip with post it tape and blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink in the center. 

Next I masked the yellow off and inked the sky in with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment and then mounted the square onto the card front using foam adhesive.


I used a cloud die from Paper Trey Ink to die cut some clouds and then sponged the edges with some Tumbled Glass. I mounted them onto the rectangle so that the outer edges of each were hanging off the sides. I then used foam adhesive to mount my "Tiny Heroes" image. The last step was to randomly adhere sequins. 

I LOVE how this came out, with the exception of the smudged sentiment. I used Wink of Stella on this part (not that you can tell from the photo!) and it smudged. I had already put it together when I noticed and I know I will ruin it if I take it apart.

I am entering this into this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Friends or Superhero." I think it is perfect for this!!



I thank you for stopping by. Farewell until next time....

Supplies:
Theresa Collins Patterned Paper

I love how this turned out,too, Nora! The pattern paper and colors are so fabulous together! I adore that Tumble Glass blue in the background! And yes, life is busy, but it's all the good kind of busy, right? I am sure your family, co-workers and your dog appreciate you more than you ever know. So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Friends/Super Hero” Challenge!
