Feeling Good!

Hello!  I have a funny card to share with you today.  At least I think so!  I, pretty much, created this card backwards.  What I mean is... I found the sentiment first.  And THEN created a card to go with it.  Usually, it's the other way around, right?

I found this sentiment stamp at our local rubber stamp show.  A show I look forward to every year.  The stamp is from Two Lips Stamps.  They carry some really funny stamps.  I only bought 3 of them, but trust me, I will me adding to my collection.

...and here comes the funny.  I swear, I laughed out loud when I read this at the stamp show.  And, guess what?  I was all by myself!  LoL.  Literally!

Maybe, it's just me, but I still crack up when I read this.

As for the making of this card... I bought the sentiment, now what?  I really had no idea how I was going to use it.  I just liked it!  When I came home from the show, I started brainstorming on how I could turn this sentiment into a card.  My brain went to car, traffic and voila, a traffic light!  A simple search on SSS led me to this traffic light by Neat & Tangled.

The front of the card is pretty simple.  To me, it's all about the sentiment on this one.  I just stamped and colored the image with Copics and added some Glossy Accent for a nice finish.  I used the Radiating Rays stencil to symbolize the light glowing from the traffic light.  I used the same traffic light on the inside of the card and just randomly stamped it using Versamark for a watermark effect.  Finished off both panels with the Wonky die from MFT.

Thank you for stopping by!
