Happy Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend! My birthday was on Saturday and after I was up for a little bit  DH said "Do you want to go to Kohls?"  I said  "Say what?" I made him repeat it for I thought I heard him wrong!! How many hubbies get up and ask their wives if they want to go to Kohl's? hehe I know this was his conscious talking for he didn't get me a present, but that's ok I played dumb!! And let me tell ya when I was done shopping he probably wished he bought that present! I love, love, love Simply Vera clothing and Kohl's had lots of her things stocked....well, until I got there they did!

Today is a repeat of a card I made last year. The Greeting Challenge at The Outlawz is to use your favorite image, sentiment or colors! I used one of my favorite images and colors! The image is Sara K's, Spring Blossom from the 3rd collection. I love this image and one I have used over and over again for it is so versatile for any occasion.  And I am so ready for spring to get here and stay! Those few 70 degree days were awesome! Come on Spring!!

Speaking about The Outlawz!!  I gave it a brand new look this past week!!  Marti Willis designed my banner and did one awesome job! It is bright and cheerful and goes with the name perfectly! Marti is a saint for I have no knowledge of graphic designs...zilch, nada, none! Marti patiently helped me every step along the way until it was finally in place! She also designed my design team, members and feature badges and everything just looks super nice and friendly... I love it! I change the layout to look more crisp and bright with a soft lilac in the background. Come see!! Remember we have seven awesome challenges with a new one starting every single day!

The DP is DCWV, The Mariposa Stack which  is so dang beautiful and I just love it!  It comes in 48 sheets of 12" x12" and the cheapest place I found for you is at JoAnn's for 9.99! LADIES!!!  That is 20 cents a sheet!!

Supplies:
  •  Cryogen White paper: The paper I  stamp my image on and lowest price I found was at Cut Card Stock: $8.55 for each pack of 25. The sheets are 8 x 11 1/2. If you buy over 10 packs the price drops to $8.07 and any order over $125.00 is free shipping
  • Copics:
    • Pants: E41, E43, E53
    • Brunette: E35, E31, YR20
    • Coral top and hat: R02, R01, R000
    • Skin: E11, E00, E000

I came back to comment on this card again because it is just too pretty for words.

Sorry, could not answer your mail...we live in in Indonesia as my hubby is posted here but he does visit Pittsburgh depending on his official requirements.

Wow, John Heinz! What a small world... I loved visiting Pennsylvania and reading about it's history... The famous Carnagie Melon University is there, right? I remember going there.

Hugs,

Monica
