Good Luck

Have you ever had just one of those days? I needed to make a card for my sister Dana. She got a new job and she starts tomorrow. So, I started working away and everything I did I actually liked. I ended up making 3 cards today and I like all of them!!!! It really is a great day. If only I could have had such sucess with my business today. I have one home that I am working on closing this week and 2 more contracts we are working through. If only my stamping mojo could transfer to my real estate LOL!

Okay this was for 2 challenges at Stamp TV. Wednesdays are such fun days for us here at the Earley home. I traditionally have the day with Izzy and we always start it with our Stamp TV video. Did you know Beate is also doing a SCS video every wednesday? It just keeps getting better. This week Gina K did one on glitter pens and there is always a challenge for the techniques showed. I also combined this with the color challenge from Stamp TV which was Black, Green and White.

Here is my card
I wanted to do a close up of the fun tag and glitter on the clover.
Isn't this stinking cute? I NEVER use glorious green ,but I decided to really challenge myself this week and I adore the results. I had actually picked out the green before the lightbulb went off with the good luck theme. My daughter is OBSESSED with all of the animals from Melaine and GKD. She know which box has those 4 sets and she gets them out daily to stamp out nanimals to color in. She has really been loving the baby animals. She opens up to them and then says AWWWE, look at all of the babies. Stinking cute. Anyway, she had it opened up to the babies and I thought frog. I was going to color him in, but then I thought less is more.
I went with less is more on the glitter pen as well. Luckily when I was at the GKD store this summer, I remembered to pick one up. I must admit at first I thought it had a gold hue, but I know realize it is the shimmer itself. The bling on the tag is from My Favorite Things and it matches perfectly. I wanted to add a little color in the corner and so the hunt was on for green galore ribbon. Soon I realized I have NONE!!! I then decided to try coloring my twill with copic markers. It really died well and I was so pleased. I have never done this before, but it is FABULOUS!!! I then needed to tie the hardware I used for the ribbon in with the rest of the card. The little library clip was the perfect accent.
It's a good life!
