Card 7 Already! Woohoo!!

I definitely am on a roll here! I know it's hard to believe but this is the 7th card I have posted in 6 days! and I'm still doing a little crafting too. I'm normally not one to toot my own horn but I'm pretty pleased with myself. Haha! It does help immensely to have a bunch of cards done up in advance but it's the same amount of work either way... a little at a time or all at once. As I may have mentioned before, when I get into a creative frenzy, I have to give in to it and allow my muse to have its way. If I don't, it could pass quite suddenly and not return for a while. Besides, it gives me a huge sense of accomplishment to have a whole big stack of cards and/or other projects completed all at the same time.

Today, I have another of my favorite images from Mo Manning. This one is called "Abby Celebrating" and I thought the greeting stamp I used was appropriate. I have never seen a happier little girl than our Abby and I would love to feel that kind of happy abandon again. It has been a while since I felt even complete contentment and that's in large part due to the employment situation, I think.  But it's not something I did to myself and I am actively seeking new employment so I have to trust in God to fulfill his plan for me, whatever that is. Seeing Abby happy makes me makes me smile though and I hope she'll make you smile too.


Base card is lime green textured cardstock from DCWV's Citrus stack, dp is My Mind's Eye Home Glitter Book. The double border was made with lime green glitter cardstock using a MS deep border punch. The ribbon is from my stash and the greeting stamp is part of a Fiskars clear stamp set called Make A Wish Quotes. Inside sentiment is by Inkadinkadoo and the border was made with the border punch that comes with one of MS's punch around the page sets. The flower is a glittered foamie sticker by Darice.

After I put this together, I thought about adding some flowers or bling but decided against it for fear that it might do more to detract from the design than add to it. I think there's plenty going on with the double border and double ribbons. Rest assured though that there are plenty more flowers and bling coming! LOL! As always, I'm glad you stopped by today and I welcome and appreciate your comments. 

I am entering this card in the June 3rd Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Challenge - Green and Pink color theme
