"Monday Madness ~ Imagine That!" with My Creative Time

Hello everyone and Happy Monday! So how did you like that Super Bowl yesterday?  Nice to see a close game for a change. So which was your favorite commercial? My top 3 favorites were: the E-Trade Baby on the maternity ward of the hospital with his dad, the funny Doritos one with the baby in the sling-shot swing and the hilarious greyhound dog race with the one little doggie that had the red shoes on and then moon-walked across the finish line!  Oh...and one more ~ if you are from my generation, then the Matthew Broderick commercial was a great throwback.  Boy am I feeling old.  LOL   I'm a huge football fan, but I absolutely love the Super Bowl commercials too! 

It's time for another "Monday Madness ~ Imagine That!" with My Creative Time.  Today, we are using our Cricut ~ Imagine machines and my assignment is to feature the Happy Mail stamp set.  It's also a "Designer's Choice" - which means we get to create anything we want!  Surprise - Surprise . . . I made a card.   hee hee   :)

The green and yellow patterned papers are printed from the Cricut Imagine ~ Imagine More cartridge.  For those of you who don't own an Imagine yet, I have to say that my most favorite thing is being able to print your own patterned paper. You know what that means???  You will never run out of a specific piece of patterned paper again!!!  Don't you just hate when that happens?

The star of my card is this really cute little snail from the My Creative Time ~ Happy Mail stamp set.  In our world of super technology, I still love making cards to send the good old fashioned Snail Mail way!  ;)  I colored him in with Prismacolor Pencils and then blended it with Odorless Mineral Spirits.  I also ink the edges of the square with both Technique Tuesday ~ black ink & Color Box ~ Chestnut Roan ink.

This neat little sentiment is also from the My Creative Time ~ Happy Mail stamp set.  I stamped it using Technique Tuesday ~ black ink.

For this last little embellishment, I used the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  The "Miss You!" sentiment is also from the My Creative Time ~ Happy Mail stamp set.  And I filled in Emma's signature stitching lines with a brown ~ Zig Writer pen.  

The brown cardstock is from Recollections.  At the bottom of the card, I used an EK Success ~ Scallop Diamond Border Punch for the pretty border.  I also used some pop dots underneath all of the cute little snails, as well as the flower embellishment for some dimension.

Well my friends, that's it for today.  I have some great projects coming up - I think I have something for almost everyday for the next two weeks!!!  And the best part ~ my 1 year blogoversary is coming up.  You don't want to miss that!  I have a great giveaway and a contest too - so stay tuned.    ;)

Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for today.  And if you want to get a closer look at this featured stamp set Happy Mail ~ click here.
