Think Happy Thoughts

Today's featured stamper on SCS is Nancy Riley aka Stampinat6213! Please check out her gallery . You can find the card I CASED HERE .

Since I had never made a criss cross card I decided this was the time because Nancy has a gorgeous one in her gallery.

There is a GREAT tutorial for making Criss Cross cards by Beate on the Splitcoast site. You can find it HERE .

All the stamps used are from Inkadinkado. The sentiment is Think Happy Thoughts . I really love that saying, as well as its size. And it was perfect here!

The flower is Inkadinkado's Crepe Paper Flower . I stamped it twice on watercolor paper, then colored with Tombow markers. One is popped up on top of the other with Scotch Mounting Tape .

The circles were cut and embossed with my circle Nestabilities. The punch at the top is a SU! punch, and the designer paper is Paper Loft's confetti.

My friend Carol said there is a new episode of Desperate Housewives tonight, so I'm off to watch it. The last episiode before the reruns was a real cliffhanger! And what is Cashmere Mafia that's coming on after that? What happened to Brothers & Sisters????? Apparently, I'm totally out of the loop! LOL!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. It's back to work tomorrow. Faint

This card demands a big WOW (!!) and lots of attention. It is gorgeous and very eye catching. You've inspired me to give this beautiful criss cross design a try.
