Jugs # 40

      Today is a better day. I recently had vein surgery and the fatigue and nausea were slowing me down, not good! Today after a nice shower things are so much better.
     Since I have to lay low for a week its a great time to catch up on some challenges and projects. I just had to play with my new stamps from MSE and Peachy Keen Stamps. I have opened my Etsy store and REALLY need to add some variety so this Anniversary card popped in my head.
     As I have said before I love making these easel cards. The sketch came from the Just Us Girls ( JUGS)
and its JUGS 40. I used all sorts of scrap papers I had hanging around. Don't ya just love when that happens! The smiling face was from the Peachy Keen Stamps and the rest are from MSE including the sentiments. I colored the face with Peebles chalks and the details on the face were done with Creative Memory markers. I also dragged out my Nestabilities to do the scalloped circle around the face and a Fiskar border punch. I just love this ribbon. Believe it or not I've had it for several years and I still have some left. I also added a few flower brads to tie in all the colors.
