It's a Lazy Afternoon!!



My new Lili Of The Valley stamps came over the weekend and I'm having so much fun playing with them.  I've been using digital stamps so much lately that I almost forgot how much fun it is to play with actual stamps. (Get ready to see lots of new cards with these stamps, LOL)  I thought this image, Lazy Afternoon, would make a perfect Father's Day card.  I have 5 Father's Day cards to make!!!  This was going to be for my Dad, but when my husband saw it he said he wanted to give it to his dad!!  I was so flattered that he loved it so much.

I used my new Basic Grey Origins DP (that my sister made me buy, LOL) and a few brads...simple right?  Well, this card stressed me the heck out!!!  I could not get the coloring right, I wanted it to look softer, vintage like but I guess that's just not my style because no matter how much I tried it just wouldn't work.

This is wonderful Wendy! I love your papers and this image is just perfect! It reminds me of my father, who always used to fall asleep reading the paper after dinner.
