When I'm with You Card

Good morning! It was an early morning for me. My Crafting Buddy (aka My Cat) is not feeling well and he woke us up every hour from 3am-6am. So, I figured I might as well get up and call the vet to schedule an appointment. Then I made my hubby Applesauce Chobani Pancakes for breakfast and did a load of laundry. Now... I'm ready for a nap.

I made this When I'm with You Card using the sketch from Sunday Stamps. I have to be honest and tell you.... this was the first time I made a banner for one of my cards. To create the banner I used the Pretty Pennants Cartridge and my Cricut machine. The image panel features a stamp from the For the Birds stamp set by Stampin' Up!. I sponged on the clouds and grass and colored the rest with a blender pen and my stampin' ink pads. The final touch was a small amount of dazzling details added to the water drops. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!
