Be Happy!

Last night I did something I hadn't done in a long time... set aside some time to cyberstamp with my friend Shirley. The plan was to chat a little on instant messenger and then make a card to combine this week's color and sketch challenges. Unfortunately my computer didn't want to cooperate and I spent more time watching my computer spontaneously reboot than I did stamping! Such a bummer! While I was waiting to see what the sketch was I pulled out this adorable Rubber Romance image I stamped a few weeks ago when I was at Lila's and started coloring. Then since I still couldn't get on SCS (it had this nasty way of crashing my computer just by logging on to SCS) I decided to go with just the color challenge. To remind myself to stay positive, I stamped Be Happy from a Studio G (Michael's $1) clear stamp set in the corner. A few doodles around the edges and stickles on the leash, scarf, shoes and the word happy and I was in business! :)

Card Recipe
Stamps: Rubber Romance, Studio G
Ink: Ancient Page Coal Black, Prismacolor Pencils
Paper: Conqueror White, Cool Caribbean, Taken With Teal, Marigold Morning
Accessories: Gamsol, Stardust Stickles, Sakura Black Glaze Pen, grosgrain ribbon

Yesterday I also received a trade I had made with Lisa (crazycatstamper) and she included this beautiful Asian card. You know me, can't resist those Asian stamps! Unfortunately both French Script and Kanji are being retired. What a sad day it was when I read that. I really hope that someone comes out with a word background that is wide instead of tall. Do you ever want to turn your cards, but can't because of the background? And with words, it's hard to piece it together. Anyway, here's Lisa's beautiful card. Thanks Lisa!
