a perfect match

today i have real fun card i made today to share! i was able to get it done during the quietest time of the day for me - nap time! ha ha! the little menn were sleeping (along with 'the' mann - my husband! ha!) and it's by far my favorite time to craft - no distractions, i have music and the sun (can be) out! :)

i made my card for two challenges today! sweet stamp shop's use what you have challenge and CAS(E) this sketch challenge

what a fun sketch, right?! so i took out my copics (my coloring is a work in progress!) and created this fun card! 

i think this stamp sets is one of my favorites - perfect match. it's so FUN! and originally i was going to use the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (my FAVORITE images on this set by far!) but i decided to use other images - can you believe this is the first time i didn't use them! ha ha! i love all of the other images, but i am a pb&j fanatic - so i always lean towards those images! lol! :)

anyway, i fussy cut and popped up all of the images and then stamped the sentiment directly onto the grey, checkerboard base. then to create a sort of 'picnic table' feel, i used some washi (from my...very...large...ahem, collection) at the top and bottom of the card (under the cardstock). fun!! and not at all how i usually use washi tape - i usually make my washi tape use front and center! lol! 

here's my washi stash:

 *my husband made me that washi tape holder for christmas last year, and i LOVE that i can see all of my washi all of the time! the colors are bright, happy and inspirational! :)

so that's it! 


  1. Samantha, I adore this sun card! I agree, the PB&J are so cute in that set, but you did a great job with the hot dog, ketchup and mustard, too!
