I thought of this stamp immediately when I heard about the House Mouse & Friends challenge of "Here Comes the Sun." I knew I wouldn't make it in time to join but I still wanted to play with this stamp.
I poked through one of my stashes of papers labeled "Summer" and came up with these that I just had to use. I love the card base because it is this patterned blue on the outside and a happy orange on the inside. I realize that the way I made the card doesn't lend itself to you knowing it is orange inside until you open it.
As much as I liked that card, it wasn't as bright and perky as I would like a summertime card to be. Plus I ran across these other lovely papers when looking for the ones above. And thus this card was born too.
The Fine Print: Papers by DCWV, glitter circle stickers by Sticko, dies by Spellbinders, Happy Hoppers stamp by Stampabilities "Seed Shooter." It is funny I like this stamp being as I don't like people who spit things, chew, snot gobbers, gum, watermelon seeds... nope, don't like it at all. In fact, I'm not a real big fan of mouths. You know, they have so much going against them--teeth that may or may not be brushed well; tongues that may be funny colors, pierced, stinky; spittle with whatever else that may include; and often they are just flapping and flapping with inane chatter coming out of them. Nope, not a fan. Love this stamp though. Can bunnies even spit? I know alpacas can. Or is that llamas?
