my double-whammy.

Yesterday, I posted 2x in one day.  A first for me.  Today, another crafty first: combining 2 challenges into 1 card... I think I'm finally getting the hang of all this :)

I'm entering this one into:


So, without further ado...

hooray for you, outside

I used lawn fawn's "bannerific" set, stamped on white card-stock with memento black ink.  I then lined up my SU ink pads (kiwi kiss, garden green, tangerine tango, real red, and daffodil delight) and stamped them with various patterned stamps.  I went over all of them with some distress ink to mute the bold colors a bit, and then fussy-cut them out.  The sentiment is from PTI's "wonderful words additions" and the continuation is found on the inside, so I could play along with the lawnscaping challenge:

hooray for you, inside

hooray for YOU!  I stamped the letters from "quinn's abcs" onto some "schoolhouse backdrops" notebook lines.  I kept everything pretty plain - since the star of this show is still that colorful banner!

Thanks for looking!

stamps used: (from PTI): woodgrain, gingham, newsprint backgrounds, wonderful words additions(from SU): charming, dot, dot, dot, (from lawn fawn): bannerific, quinn's abcs, schoolhouse backdrops.
