Sunny Kick Up!

I can't believe it's all ready Friday. Where did the week go? Not sure how much I'll get to post this weekend. Football game tonight at my daughter's high school and they are finally getting this years field show on the field for half time. The our town's "Country Days" parade is tomorrow and the band will march in that plus it's my last day of being in charge of the soccer snack bar. Sunday I am working at the lemonade stand that the band is running at the fall festival at one of the local farms and then some friends are coming to stay Sunday night with us before they spend Monday at Disneyland. So...don't worry if you don't hear from me. I'm just busy!

I did have time to work on kickin' up a card for you last night. This was a card front that I got at as a 2004 convention swap. At the time I liked the look of it and saved it to case. Flash forward three years and it's a little simple for me...though it would still make a great "quick card". I decided to re-work this one and "kick it up".

I took the turquoise/yellow panel and ran it through the cuttlebug. We didn't have that tool 3 years ago. It's hard to see if the picture, but it adds a nice texture to the card. Then as usual, adding a layer or two is a terrific way to kick up a card to the next level. I attached the cuttlebugged panel to a yellow card. I decided to color the lobster with marker instead of watercolor so that it would match the brightness of the cardstock. Then I layered him on three levels of cardstock and attached with brads.

I hope you like today's "kick up" card. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
