Bring on the sun and warm weather. While we're speaking of warm ...banners seem to be the hot thing this year on cards and scrapbook pages and I can see why. They add such a cuteness factor and they are addicting once you start doing them. Plus if you have a stash of Alpha stickers and you know you ALL do... its a great way to use them up.
Again I've used up some more of my let's hold on to this paper for just the right occasion. Well I've decided every day is the right occasion. So here we go ... I layered the white base with some basic grey paper from a little 6x6 pad called recess. The plaid layer is DCWV dots, stripes and plaids stack. The polka paper is old dcwv that I've been hoarding. That just about covers the paper end of it.
How the rest was done ... I cut the banner from the cricut using straight from the nest and it was trial and error with the size since I needed so many for the letters. The kite is from the Pooh and Friends cart. The adorable little elephant is Emery from Verve. Just the cutest stamp ever. I stamped him twice on gray and cut just his head out the second time adding pop dots to it. The hello square is also from Verve Happy Hello set.
I hope this card cries out to Mother Nature and she delivers me the weather I'm asking for. Till then, thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again. This card qualifies for Use It Tuesday's challenge, use some old dp and quit hoarding it and we all know what a dp hoarder I am. I believe there is still time to play along so check out my side bar and under challenges click the link Use It Tuesday. Its lots of fun and you'll get to use up your stash!!!
