Good Luck To You

Good morning and happy Wednesday to ya!  Are you ready for some more card making inspiration?  I've got another card to share which showcases the CAH-UTE St. Patrick's Day Stamp of the Month stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps, and the Peachy Picks Kit.  Boy, have I EVER had a blast playing with these, and you're going to start seeing sneak peeks for next month's kit very, very soon.  I don't know how they do it, but they just keep getting better and better!!  Keep your eyes peeled for all the latest updates on the new release, and the mean time, I'll keep tempting you with all the wonderful things currently available.  Heehee!! 

This card was created with Echo Park's Times and Seasons 6x6 paper pad, wood buttons, and twine, which was all included in the kit, along with a whole lot more for oodles of fun projects later.  The stamp set is the February Stamp of the Month PKSC-02.  What I really love about this little guy is the hair.  I started to put it together, and realized that he seemed to be missing a very important detail, so I started searching through my stash to see what I could come up with for hair.  What I found was some small cording in a peachy color.  I looped it to the back of the hat, and cut the strands, then frazzled them a little bit.  For some added color I gave him some darker tips using my Copic markers, and I LOVE how it turned out.  It just makes me smile, and I can't help it.  Everything was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Some Spica glitter pens gave some added sparkle to the buckles of his shoes and hat, as well as the hatband and the straps on the keg.   I made the collar out of some scrap paper from the Echo Park pack, by punching with my scalloped circle punch and hand cutting to fit.  Oh, and I almost forgot the best part!  His head is popped up onto an Action Wobble, so he's got some wiggly action going on as well!  He is just as cute as he can be!!

I'm off to tackle a mountain of laundry and hopefully squeeze in some stampy time in between.  If you don't hear from me within in a couple of days, please send out a search party!!  Thanks so much for dropping by today.  I hope you like what I've shared with you, and I wish you a blessed, bright and beautiful day!  Happy Stamping!!!
