Special Moments Are Always Remembered...

Hi Everyone!  Boy, this week has blown by!  My MIL arrived on Tuesday with my twin 6yr old nieces and it's been crazy busy ever since.  My son and the girls have been swimming, playing board games, playing baseball in the yard, drawing on the patio with chalk, etc.  I barely remember when I had that much energy!  Of course, my Mom thinks I still run on pure adrenaline!  I guess I do keep pretty busy all the time :-)  Actually, tomorrow will be super busy with some friends coming over with their kids to swim and eat all day!  And the weather is supposed to be GORGEOUS!!!

So my hubby pointed out that my last post, where I talked about fireworks, was probably the most negative he's ever heard me write on my blog.  I'm sooooo sorry!  I didn't mean to come across that way.  I must have been in a weird mood when writing that post. 

Well, I'm back to my normal self now and I have a new card to show you.  Last Saturday was my monthly card class at my house.  The ladies that come are sooooo much fun!  We have a great time and I look forward to it each and every month.  If my hubby would put up with it weekly, I would definitely schedule it! 

This month I decided to work with one of my Little Darlings rubber stamps.  I chose 'Go Girl Go' because I just love her...and because I had already colored her!  Hehehe :-)

Here's my card...

Special Moments Are Always Remembered
So this is how I put a card together when I'm in a huge hurry...I already confessed to the ladies in my class, so I will clue you all in as well.  My days have been so busy that I keep forgetting which day it actually is!  At 7pm on Friday night, I remembered that my card class was meeting early the next morning.  OMG!!!  To top it off, we were supposed to meet friends to watch fireworks at 8:20pm.  Now what!  I was also in the middle of scarfing down a cheeseburger.  Luckily I didn't choke on it!  LOL!  Long story short...I tossed the burger aside and raced up to my studio to begin assembling as quickly as I could and with no actual direction in mind.  I left for the fireworks and returned after midnight to put my son to bed and finish the card and cutting the class materials.  I was in bed at 1:30am.  Zzzzzzzz.........

So, I just love the way my card turned out!  As mentioned, this sweet image is Little Darlings' 'Go Girl Go' and she's available exclusively at Love To Stamp.  Don't you just love her?  She's absolutely carefree and having a blast!  I paired her with dp's from Basic Grey's 'Out of Print' collection.  The ribbon and doily are from my stash.  I bought the flowers from the Magnolia shop when I visited Sweden last Fall.  The brown trim was punched using a MS border punch.  The sentiment is from my collection but I can't remember the manufacturer right now.  Sorry!

The image was colored using Copic markers.  Here are the details:

E000, E00, E11, E13, E41, E42, E43, E44
R0000, R20, R30, R81, R83, R85
YG01, YG21, YG91, YG95, YG97
B0000, B00, B60
W00, W1, W3, W5
N0, N1
Well, that's it for me today!  I do hope you enjoyed my card :-)  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Oh my goodness Angie this is gorgeous! I adore your coloring and your backgrounds are always AMAZING! Love it!

P.S. Sorry that I am contacting you so late after winning your challenge...my hubby and I were on vacation and when we got home found out my Grandpa has cancer. I was wondering how I go about redeeming my prize :)
