Make It Monday #179

*Note: I have some stamps & dies listed for sale here
if you'd like to check them out.  :)

Well, since I had such a great time leading Sage's Sunday School group last year,
I signed up to do it again this year.

As much as I would have loved to keep my same group, because they were awesome,
the powers that be decided to change things up & I have a new group.
Three of the kids are from my group last year (including Sage!), 
but I have seven new kids.

I wanted to start off the year on a good note, so I made them all "happy hello" cards
to tell them how excited I am that they're in my group, how I'm looking forward
to getting to know them & hanging out with them on Sunday mornings
and how I think this year is going to be great. :)

I decided to use the adorable ferris wheel stamp from Betsy's MIM County Fair kit
and paired it with a Wet Paint hello and the "a happy" stamp from WW: Hello.
I used the Journaling Card 1 die to die cut my panels.

I was going to use patterned paper for my backgrounds, 
but changed my mind when I saw Laura's MIM this week for Papertrey Ink: 
Emboss Resist Using Diecuts and decided that this would create 
great backgrounds for my cards!

I used my Centre Stage cover plate for this technique.
I did half of the cards with the whole cover plate and half with just the top two thirds.
I inked them up using five colours.

In berry sorbet:

And in raspberry fizz:

Thanks for looking!
