Saturday in the Park...

Remember that song from the 70's I think. Well, around here it's Saturday in the projects! Tommy is in the attic working on a "3 hr tour" but weather started getting rough, and his 3 hr. project of moving cable in the attic has taken three weeks! I am hoping, praying, and planning on organizing in my craft room so I can clean off the "dining room" table that one has eaten at in weeks. That project has not been started yet. I am also headed to Greensprings to help one of the residents decorate a big flamingo! Well enough rambling, I have a really cute card to show you today. It is called an ATC or artist trading card, they are often used for swaps because on their smaller size. This one was for the limited supply challenge at SCS yesterday. The idea was to make a small card to tuck in your kids' or husband's lunch box or book bag for them to discover later. I used Brocade Blue with Barely Banana, Real Red and Whisper White. Sock Monkey is stamped on a 1 3/8 circle, colored and placed inside the card so he is peeking out the 1 1/4 circle punched out of the front. The tag is placed on dimensionals and the ribbon is attached with a silver brad. You won't believe Tommy still has a Sock Monkey his grandmother made him over 50 years ago. Well, hope you enjoy this card. Have a great day. Let's get together soon and stamp, stamp stamp!
