You Make me Happy!

I'm sorry I haven't been hopping around & commenting much this week - not sure what's going on, but I seem to be fighting off some sort of malaise. All I've been doing is getting the kids to camp, walking the dog, watching TV, and sleeping. Lots of sleeping. Hopefully I've turned the corner & will be back to normal soon - it doesn't help that the weather has been atrocious. Torrential rain - on Monday alone we got about 60 mm (6 cm, nearly 2.5 inches!)

Supplies: papers from Echo Park "Summertime;"
die cut tree & mushrooms, owl sticker from Walmart;
sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up!;
Dusty Concord Distress Ink
My inspiration for this card came from Allison at Stampin' When I Can, whose card was created for the Playing in Paradise challenge for last week. My card has absolutely nothing to do with the challenge - to use stencils - but I was inspired by so many of the elements Allison used for her card. The clouds, the trees, the funky hills, all of these things were hollering "Hey, you should do that!" so I did :)
I couldn't get a good photo of it, but there's an additional little layer beneath the tree that I cut with my Martha Stewart fringe scissors, and it's edged by those cute little mushrooms.
Now off to watch some more of Castle, season two. It's due back at the library tomorrow, and I've got about 10 episodes left to watch. Eeps!
xoxo,
Jessi

What a cute little scene! I love all the fun papers you used.

I hope you got finished with all 10 episodes-must have been quite the marathon!

This card is super-duper adorable. I love it! The fringing in front has great texture. Hope the weather doesn't wash you away--yikes!

This is so cute, Jessi! I certainly hope you are feeling better and that it has stopped raining.
