Mix it Up!

Happy Saturday friends! I'm happy to get a chance to post today. It's proven to be a very rainy and coldish Saturday morning. My baby was ready for a nap and my husband and other 2 kidlets are at my son's baseball game...and I thought I'd let everything else wait and sit down for a little mommy time...yea!! I've got my last class this Tuesday with my students at the elementary and we're making stuff for Father's Day. This stamp screams "Father's Day" wouldn't you say!?

The stamp is from the May Monthly Mix "Wish Big"'s such a fun mix of images!! Speaking of the mix, today LAD is doing a GREAT promotion for any of you that are contemplating becoming a Mix can check out the details about the fun promotion today here. I'm excited that I have already played along with Jen's SFYTT! I NEVER get the sketch done on the day it's posted...yea!
For this card, I milled through an "all boy" paper pack from MME that has a great supply of more subtle and masculine papers. I loved this stripe...and it is turned out perfect for this card. I used some Brocade Blue, Bravo Burgandy(I think that is my first time ever using this color...bravo jen!!)and Certainly Celery cardstock from SU for my colors. I colored my tool box with copics. I pulled out some brads from my stash that have been waiting for their time in the spotlight for WAY too long...and they are perfect!!

Hope your day is great...thanks so much for stopping by! I'm hoping this week will prove to help me return to my "normal" daughter's neck is MUCH better and that is helping her be her happy little self again. Here's to a great productive Saturday!! Make it great!

Jen, your card looks great! Love the layered screw brads.

Bummer that you won't be at the CHA. Can't wait to hang out with you again. Maybe winter CHA.

Have a great weekend! Hugs and smiles
