Announcement and A One Layer Sweetie

Hey everyone! Sorry I'm a little late this morning. It was raining when I woke up, so since there would be no morning walk with Riley I turned the alarm off and slept in a little longer! It's still raining and looks like it will all day! Too bad I have to go to work today because it would be a perfect stay in and stamp day.

If you haven't yet commented on yesterday's card and you'd like a chance to win it, you still have time. I won't have pick the winner until after noon.

I have an important announcement to make - the video that shows the "Holly-soft" had to be re-edited, so the link to that video if you are here looking for it or wanted to pass it on to someone can now be found HERE I also changed out the video that was on my blog post, so if you send them to my blog they'll find it under tutorials. I do appreciate the response!

Today I have a simple little one layer card to show you.

(click to enlarge)

I used the too cute Ice Cream Girl that Lynne Stansbery drew along with a flower stamp I got from Michael's dollar spot. I colored her with copic markers and chalked the grass and sky.
For some reason my sky doesn't show up in the photo!

Once again I used a little grass sprigs stamp from Art Impressions to stamp over my chalked grass. The words were computer generated, but I can't remember the font I used. Sorry about that! The top part of the card was embossed with the swiss dots embossing folder and then I simply tied a ribbon around the card where the embossing ends.

I'll be back a little later to tell you who wins the card! Thanks for looking!
