Brighten My Day

Hi Everyone!
Well, we made it through another week! I hope yours was a good one and if not, well...at least the weekend has finally arrived! We don't have a lot planned for the weekend except for a baseball game for my son tomorrow evening; and then church on Sunday and maybe a little shopping and lunch after. How about you? Anyone have anything exciting they're doing this weekend?


Shall we talk about today's card? As you can see, it is NOT a birthday card! I used Simon Says Stamps "Watt's Up" set to make this bright fun card. I struggled with what color to make the light-bulb (only a crafter would say that!) and this is actually the second version of the light bulb. I originally had it a much darker orange; but decided I didn't like that very much so I re stamped it and then used my YR04 Copic Marker to color it in instead. I actually cut out the image and then adhered it on top of the older darker image, which you can see as a small outline around the image. I used the sun rays stamp to create a "burst of light" behind the lightbulb. Of course, I added some shimmer with my favorite Wink of Stella pen. I cut out a small heart and added it to the center of the lightbulb as well. I used an embossing folder on the Simply Chartreuse (PTI) background piece. Honestly, I don't know what the design is called....it's one I picked up from Hobby Lobby a while ago.  I layered the card pretty much as shown and added the sentiment in black ink down in the corner.

I think that is about all for me this week. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I would love to hear about anything special you have planned and would like to share! Thanks for visiting with me today and I will see you all again on Monday!
