Life IS Sweet!


I had the most wonderful weekend! I never left my house yesterday, no real cooking (except on the grill), and no stress! Does it get any better than that?

I spent Saturday working on boxes that are still unpacked from when I moved into my new house 6 months ago! Don't laugh...I'm not finished yet! Then I hung out at the pool for an hour (or two?) before I got busy working on uploading new images to the webstore. I finished off the evening with a *little* wine and grilled chicken salad. Yes...life is sweet!

Today I got to do some stamping. This card is made with A Muse stamps that I just got in last week. Doesn't that whole card look ice creamy? (Is that a word?) The main image is the A Muse Ice Cream Truck. I stamped it twice, once on the Marvy Giga Scallop and once on white cardstock.

After I colored the ice cream truck stamped on the white cardstock, I cut it out then adhered it over the one stamped on the scallop oval. It's okay if you don't cut it perfectly (like the wheels), because the image you put it over takes care of those little imperfections. Hey...we need all the help we can get, right? :-)

I stamped You Make Life Sweet on yellow cardstock, then layered with pink, and then violet trimmed with my Fiskars Scalloped scissors. I meant to put Stickles glitter glue on the ice cream cone, but forgot it until after I had photographed the card. Oh well....you get the idea!


I definitely need to send this card to the grands........they will love it!

Have a good Sunday evening, and a really good Monday. I'm off to make dinner and get ready to watch Desperate Housewives.
