sending good thoughts

This week we have been celebrating our friend Heather Campbell over in The Classroom and her adorable designs for Avery Elle. One of my favorite new stamps by Heather is the super cute Wood You? set. Isn't he so adorable?!
I love his dreamy expression and I thought it was perfect for a happy thoughts card...
To create this card I cut a speech bubble shape from masking paper. There are lots of cute speech bubble dies but I was too lazy to clean my desk and find mine so masking paper works great. (P.S. Anyone want to organize my craft room?)
After applying the mask, use a blending tool to apply light pink ink like Distress Ink Spun Sugar.

Next stamp that cutie-pie beaver in a pale ink for no line watercoloring. My current favorite is Distress Ink Antique Linen.
Color with your favorite medium. I love Clean Color Markers because of their forgiving nature (I'm a messy crafter).
Add a sentiment and create a heart for the woodchuck to hold with Nuvo Drops.
Finally fill the special bubble with "good thoughts" like donuts, cookies & cupcakes. Of course your idea of good thoughts might be different than mine, LOL!

Don't forget that you can still get some of Heather's designs for 15% off at Ellen Hutson, along with other Avery Elle goodies. Check them out here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
