A Kindness Card using Simon Says Stamps

Happy Monday!! It is a beautiful day in Connecticut and one of my last days of freedom. I attempted to make my Christmas card at Shutterfly today with photos I took of a reluctant Charlotte yesterday and I think we are going to have to do them over. She is so self conscious and does not like having ME take a photo. I know all this is part of being a teen but she is so photogenic and it was never a problem in the past. Her silly selfies-she has no issue with, though, and I think it is so interesting.

On another note, I am going to share a a card I created on Saturday. It is with Simon Says Stamp! "Dexter and Simon" set. I LOVE pigs and I could not wait to ink this stamp set up when I bought it. I colored it in and then never did anything with it. (I do that a lot!!) This weekend I dug out my colored panel and finally completed a card.


I think he is so cute!! I colored Dexter in with Copics and then did some little "dots" with them around to make it a little more interesting. I then die cut the panel into a square using and MFT die.


I mounted the image on white card stock embossed with a heart embossing folder, glued part of the sentiment (also from Simon Says Stamp!) and then stamped the rest of it using black ink. I used clear Wink of Stella on the gray parts of Dexter and on the peanut butter jar but it is difficult to tell in this photo.

I will be sending this with a little something something to a friend this week. I bought a bunch of little things at the store today and I am so excited to send them out.

I thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful night!
