It's a Marvelous Monday~

Good Morning!  Hopefully, I can get this written and posted before noon, so that I don't have to change that greeting!

Had a great weekend with family!  What more can a person truly ask for (except cable that

This morning, I finished up my card for Sew Many Challenges.  I love SMC Digis!!  A shout out to my SCS friend, Forest Ranger, for pointing me in their direction!  And, SMC loves to offer up great challenges; this one being to make an easel card.

This is Morty Camping!!  We are a big camping it! So, that being said, I HAD to have this digi set!!  Check it, and others, out in their STORE.

Morty is colored with Copics and cut out so I could put him on dimensionals!  So is his fire - hope he gets his marshmallow just right!  {What you can't tell is that the fire pops up and isn't part of the front of the card.}  That yummy marshmallow is topped with Crystal Effects to give it a nice glazed look.  {Not sure that really shows up in the picture though}.  The paper is from Stampin Up- Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango....  The ink is Close to My Heart (CTMH) Olive and Momento Rich Cocoa.  The trees for the background and the two sentiments are also from CTMH (their Hello Friend and Back to Nature sets).  The top sentiment reads "To touch the earth is to have harmony with nature. ~ American Indian Proverb".  The ribbon was in my bag o' ribbon leftovers and the little gold metal dots are generics from WalMart (maybe).

I'm on a mission to get some images colored today....have a swap to get out by the end of the week and don't want to miss the dead line....cutting it way close for!

Have a great day!

ps. I made it by 15, it is still morning here on the East Coast!

Morty is one of my favorites, too. Angela has such awesome digis at Sew Many Cards. I have almost all of them. Over 300 at last count. Can you spell Addicted?
