Gingham and Chicks



I woke up bright and early this morning, raring to go and finish this card. I had started it last night and put most of it together. So this morning, I sat down and watercolored this as soon as I crawled out of bed. Yup - haven't had breakfast, haven't had a shower..... This stamping thing is addictive, isn't it??? LOL

This is another Sarah Kay stamp that my friends gave to me for my birthday last week. I'm having so much fun with these stamps. It's bringing me back to my first love, which is coloring.

I was browsing Peanutbee's blog and saw this layout, and quickly sketched it on scratch paper. It's a beautiful layout and it works perfectly with Sarah Kay images. I hope she doesn't mind that I cased her layout. :-)

Stamps: Sarah Kay Country Girl
Ink: Black Stazon, Caramel, Cocoa, Summer Sun, Saffron, Banana, Brocade Blue, Real Red, Only Orange, Celery
CS: Brocade Blue, watercolor paper, designer paper from Making Memories
Other: blue ribbon, Rich Regals brads, aquapainter
