Feelin' Groovy?

Feelin' a little groovy?
Need to get into the groove?
If you answered YES to either of these questions, then you must have this new stamp set
from Ippity
 SOMETHING GROOVY
 It's just been released today, so inquire about it if you don't see it listed in the stamp shop.
 

For my card I decided to do something a little different, although you really can't tell too much just from the photo.  I dusted off the 'ole coloring pencils, gave them a sharpen and went to work!
You know me, I cut out the image, flecked it with a bit of brown spritz and popped it onto the card with foam dots.  I wanted the baker's twine 'bow' to resemble the actual bow...for this, I stitched back and up (twice) the length of the bow runner and then tied into generous loops at the top.  A small dab of Zig glue holds down the ends of the baker's twine nicely.  Finish it off with a few colorful buttons and you. are. done.
Quick & Easy!
-------------------------------------------
We're expecting up to 8 inches of rain over the next few days...much needed, but like everything else:  just wished it wouldn't all come at one time.  God has to be asking Himself "are these people EVER happy?"
hahahaha
So, if I don't float away, I'll be back in a day or two :)
Be Blessed

  4. Awesome card Shellye! It reminds me of the IKEA commercial with the VW bug piled two stories high with IKEA boxes. Remember that one?
