Sentimental Sundays and Sami Stamps

Thanks for stopping by today!
I'd love to invite you to a new challenge at

Our theme this week is:
Lovey Dovey
How cute is that?

Sponsoring is

I decided to use "Umbrella Love" for my card this week.
Isn't it such a sweet image?  I think it's very romantic!

The sentiment is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Journal stamp set.  I really like the way it wraps around the umbrella so nicely.  To play up the words, I traced over all of them with a light blue ProMarker.

I added the second part of the sentiment on the inside of the card.  Little hearts were added along the bottom edge of the inside.  They were made with a Martha Stewart Heart Confetti Punch.


One of my brand new, very juicy markers decided to hiccup all over just as I was finishing coloring.  Suddenly, there was a giant splotch right at the base of the pony tail.  Arrrgh!  

This was a great time to remind myself of one of my favorite sayings:
There are no mistakes in card making....
merely new opportunities for additional embellishments.
So, my girl is wearing a rose and bow in her hair.
No more splotch.

This card can be found in the following challenges:

  4. I love this card Roberta! the papers are amazing (I love vintage newspaper style papers), and if you wouldn't have said about the marker accident, I wouldn't have notice! very good way to "conceal" it! The "there are no mistakes in cardmaking..." quote is great!
