You're So Cool!

Hello friends!  Yay!  I made a card! LOL!

I was so happy when I got the August Simon Says Stamp kit in the mail and going through all of the fun goodies in it!  I couldn't resist making up a fun card with it!

I guess my mission was to use as much as everything I could from the kit as I thought well enough to make a card.  This is simple and so fun!  (Don't you love those smile faces on the pop-sickles?!)

I stamped the images from the stamp set in the kit with Momento Black ink and then colored them in with the two distress markers that came with the kit.  The distress markers were used by scribbling them on an acrylic block and using my water brush to color with.  I also added some of the same colors to the sentiment banner as well.  I did take some glimmer paper from my stash for a bit of sparkle border along the side.
Here's a closer view:
The heart chipboard was from the kit and covered with Stickles glitter.  I also used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the Popsicle buddies and covered them with some glossy accents.  I think that stamp set is adorable and will be using again for sure!

*Be sure to check out the supply list below on what I used to make this card!*

Here are some places that I'd like to link this card to:
Simon Says Stamp "Work it Wednesday" - use the color blue
Simon Wednesday Challenge - Make it Sparkle
AAA Cards - Enjoy Summer Foods:
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - CAS (Clean & Simple) 4 kids

I have some major packaging of cards that I'd like to get sent out to different organizations and people in need of some cards.  I have a box that I've been meaning to go through and was hoping to do this before I moved, but ran out of time.  So it will feel good to get these all mailed out!
Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely messages!  I do appreciate them all so much!

HUGS & SMILES

Stunning creation, loving the image and the colour combo too... Oh wow power in prayer or the power and determination and will of an old man to keep on living....his smile today was priceless and he actually ate a bit of porridge and soup for me today. Yesterday we were told to tell family and have his Last Rights given by the Priest, he was not able to open the Golden Gates... I have decided to come home this evening after spending all night with him and try and relax....and this is how I relax....thanks for your sweet thoughts, I value my friends here...♥aNNie
