Ellen M. LIFE AT WALNUT HILL ~ GUEST DESIGNER DAY 3

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  I've been having a BLAST playing with my PEACHY KEEN STAMPS.

I had so much fun making my card for today. 

My youngest daughter Abby was invited to a Mardi Gras themed birthday party last Saturday (that girl had 5 things going on that day) ~ her dear friend Katy turned 16!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATY!

I found this adorable cutting file from Treasure Box Designs and cut it with the SURE CUTS A LOT program.  You don't have to use SCAL to get these cute files.  You can purchase them and hand cut them.


























Isn't she CUTE?? 

I had the tiny chain layin' around for a very long time.  I knew that one day it would be perfect on a card or layout and I was right.  I colored it with teal and purple COPICS.  The larger chain with the GOT BEADS? sentiment is the kind of chain from a pull ceiling fixture (it's actaully from my oldest daughters closet - sorry Meta)  I colored that too.

I used one of my favorite PEACHY KEEN STAMPS sets (oh....who am I kidding....I LOVE THEM ALL) ..anyways it's the HAPPY LASHES ASSORTMENT (PK-460) and even though the "lashes" part of the stamp is covered up by the mask, you can see that HUGE smile and nose on this party girl. 

Did you know that PEACHY KEEN STAMPS sells all kinds of tools too?  I love their cheek chalk brushes  They are listed in the SUPPLIES category under PAINTBRUSHES and they come in two sizes.  My PEACHY cheeks come out perfect using these tools.

Please see my DAY 1 post for information/rules on the giveaway

Remember...think outside the box ~ that's where the fun is and I hope you have a PEACHY KEEN day!!

I grew up on the Gulf Coast where Mardi Gras reigns supreme, so when I saw this cute card it really caught my eye, but then I read the sentiment and all I could think of was what you used to have to do (way back in the day) to get those beads.
