So nice!

Yes...the weekend was soooooo nice! The weather was beautiful here, I'm LOVING the change to daylight savings time, and I managed to get my new iPad2! Life is good! Will you pleezzzzze remind me I said that next weekend when I'm tearing my hair out over my income tax return? Ha!
I made this card today, and even participated in The Sweet Stop Sketch challenge. The images are from the Penny Black Paint The Town clear stamp set. Honestly, there are so many adorable images in that set it was hard to decide which to use first!

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, and colored using Tombow Markers . A picture of the ones I used is below.

The designer papers are all from the Kaisercraft Candy Lane 6 x 6 paper pad . It includes such gorgeous spring colors, and the scalloped border I used is in the pad as well. To make the flower I used MFT's Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics . I put a Dew Drop in the center that had been colored with a Copic Marker. The ribbon is May Arts Celery 3/8" Satin .

This is a picture of the Tombow Markers I used. Please note that the four flowers I colored are all different shades of ONE marker, Tombow #703. I achieved the change in intensity with the marker by using more or less ink and water to color.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your weekend was *so nice* as well.

How could anyone look at that and not smile? Put it where you can see it while doing your tax returns (and maybe pop it in an envelope for the tax man!!!)
