Clouds and Flowers

First off, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.
 Clearsnap and the new Stephanie Barnard stamp pads are our sponsor this week.  I pulled out some Paper Smooches stamps to create my card. 
 The cloud stamp was stamped on a piece of "text" print digital patterned paper.  It is from a set at 2 Peas in a Bucket.  To use the stamp pads, I used my blending tool and colored the clouds and the yellow portion of the little scooter with the ink in the stamp pads. The rest of the scooter was colored with Copic markers.  These new pads are the best colors. 
 Next up is my Unscripted sketches card for this week and it has a piggyback challenge to it to use fabric. The use of the fabric also fits the Moxie Fab challenge to use Texture.

 I pulled out some fabric I had purchased with these adorable little flowers all over it. I used Mod Podge and glued three flowers to white cardstock and left that to dry. When it was dry, I cut the flowers out. The cardstock helped make the flowers more sturdy, they were easier to cut out and it helped stop the fabric from fraying. 
 Notice that red strip going down the page? I punched it with one of my brand new Kreaxions 4-in-1 punches.
And for a couple photos...
 We took a trip to the San Diego Safari Park last weekend. Kids get in free in October.  We knew there was a new baby gorilla there so that was one of our first stops. The mom with her baby came out for just a few minutes.  I think the mom doesn't let the baby go very far away from her so it was so cute to watch her carry it around. It was just born in June so it is very young. 
The mom got sight of something in this tree that she wanted so she walked over, stood up and reached for what she was after.  It was neat to see her walking around.  If you are in that area, this park is a wonderful place to visit and to see the animals in something very similar to their natural surroundings.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
