Sugar Pea Designs #19

Happy Friday!  I have another card to share today for Sugar Pea Designs.  As I don't have any Sugar Pea stamps, I used the set from Taylored Expressions Party Monsters-love those littles monsters.

When I was doing the background, I had to think of graffiti on the walls - I don't know why but somehow I was inspired by it.  The background is stamped with MFT Abstract Art in two different colours and the sentiment is also from TE Party Monsters set.  Thereafter, I embossed the bricks and love how it turned out.

Added two vellum banners and I can't resist making another shaker card and this time with a stamped sentiment on the background. I have been wanting to use this giant googly eye for a long time!

I am also popping this into Seize the Birthday challenge.

Today, my 14 years old daughter, Claire left for her one week student exchange in Madrid, Spain.  She will be staying with a spanish family who has a daughter of the same age who is a stranger to her and us as well.  The only time that the spanish family has contact with Claire was via whatsapp since the last few weeks so as to speak to get to know each other.  This is the first time that she is flying on her own but with her classmates.  It's going to be strange without her for the full week!

Have a good day!

This card made me laugh! That big goggle eye is like a shaker itself! Oh do I love the details here - the background, that party hat, and way too cool to make the sentiment banner into a shaker! I will pray for your daughter to have a wonderful and safe experience.

What an adorable card, Lai Yoke!

I wish your daughter all the best in her trip to Spain. It is hard as a parent to let them spread their wings, sometimes. :)
