Say Cheese!


Hope everyone is doing well.  It's been a rough couple of months at work and actually getting to blog has been a bit difficult.  I'm so bummed because I actually like it here.  With all the new things going on at work it feels like blogging would be the last thing I'd want to do, but I'm going to try to turn that around and try to get back in to the groove.  What better way to finding my groove than with a sweet card and if I decided to enter it in to the C.C. Designs DT Call well that just shows ya I mean business!  (hahaha)  Dr. Maya Angelou said it best, "Ain't nothin' to it but to do it" and I don't think I have anything to lose plus I get to add another card to my stash.  Flipping through my C.C. Designs stamps, I came across Camera Birgitta.  I'm pretty sure I haven't inked her up yet so she was perfect for a CAS kind of card.

I'm a big fan of the C.C. Cutters and AmyR's sentiments, but there is just something about these Birgittas... So darn cute!  After stamping her on to the white cardstock I happily colored her with Copics.  Thought it would be fun to keep the summer colors alive as they make me happy.  And look she's got polarized sunglasses!!  hehehe  I added two perfect sentiments from AmyR's Wish You Were Here stamp set.  The last touch was to add the Daisy chain banner to the left side of the card.  There might have been just a bit too much white space for me and I like how the daisies look where they fell.

This was a lot of fun to put together and getting to write about it here was another point on the road to finding my groove.  Hoping to actually get back to visiting some blogs and catch up on what everyone has been making and sharing.  I know there's bound to be lot of cute Halloween and Christmas projects.  More inspiration to see and appreciate.  Before I go, "Say Cheese!" =D

Hehehe, sorry I couldn't resist.   Alrighty signing off for sure this time.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a terrific day and stop by tomorrow when I share my mid-inspiration for Aloha Friday's current challenge...  Have you linked up yet?   Bye!!

Great minds think alike- I just linked up yesterday for the CC DT!! lol! I had ordered some stamps from them, but I wasn't sure they would make it in time for me to come up with something, so I had to use some others! She is too cute, I don't know why I haven't bought their images before!!?? Awesome work! Good luck!!

Yes, that image is irresistibly cute. Love the glasses! Your coloring, color choices and the addition of the row of daisies are what make the card extra special. I'm happy whenever I see your posts! Thank you!
