What a day!

What a day it has been so far!  On the way to the passport office our car just died in the middle of the street.  We know we have a sensor issue with it but its been working fine for a while. Not today when we have so much to do!  Thankfully after resting for a while, it started up again and we were able to get home.  We have to go out again this afternoon and we are hoping we make it to our destinations.  On the way home we will stop off and hire a car for a few days while this one gets fixed.  My husband will fix it over the weekend.  One of our other cars has been in the shop for a week as my daughter got hit a couple of weeks ago.  So its already been a struggle getting everyone to where they need to be, and everyone is on different schedules. 

So I have a few minutes before we have to leave again and I’ve turned on one of my favorite bands, Pentatonix, and now I’m ready to share another card with you!

This is another slimline card. I really enjoy making these.  I tend to make a lot of holiday themed cards but this one could be for a birthday, or just a way to let someone know you are thinking of them.

These stamps are from an adorable set from mftstamps.com called “Let’s stick together”. There are also matching dies.  My daughter loves cacti so this set is her favorite!   

I stamped the cacti images on Neenah Classic Crest solar white 80lb paper and colored them with a mixture of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers.  I used memento tuxedo black ink for the stamping. 

I used the slimline marquee die from whimsystamps.com .  I used tumbled glass distress oxide ink with the MFT mini cloud edge stencil from mftstamps.com to create a background for the cacti.  The papers used are from the Echo Park happy easter collection.  I propped the slimline marquee frame up with some Scotch 3M foam tape from amazon.com and added a few enamel dots to finish it off. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and I will see you soon with another card.
