Scrapping Everyday Miracles - September Challenge!

I cannot believe it is September already! It feels like it was just June - and now the kids head back to school here in Alberta today! Well, with the start of a new month comes the start of a new challenge over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, and since it's Tuesday I'm posting over at the Scrapendipity Way Of Life blog - so what better than to combine them :) I'm not quite ready to let summer go, so as you'll see my card is celebrating catching that last bit of summer fun!

This month my project is based on the awesome card sketch by DT member Bev!

I recently picked up the Crazy Birds, Crazy Things and Crazy Talk stamps from the Scrapendipity Truck (we have an awesome scrapbook truck and online store full of amazing papercrafting goodies since our LSS closed!) and I've been having so much fun using them! I also picked up a goody pack of BoBunny Ephemera full of papers from the Boardwalk collection as well as coordinating stamps and accessories. They were a perfect addition to my summer fun card!

I stamped my bird on white cardstock and coloured him in with Prismacolor Markers, which are alcohol based. I added some glasses from the Crazy Things set and popped them up with foam dots, and then I stamped a surf board from the BoBunny Ephemera set and popped it under his wing. He's totally ready to catch a wave! I also used a Tim Holtz sunray stencil on my background along with some Distress Ink to brighten up my card.

Inside, I added a stamped sentiment from the Crazy Talk set - love the handwriting in this set - as well as some shades and a splash of water from the BoBunny set.

Lastly, I had to decorate my envelope! I added another cute bird and a few more stamps and coloured them in with Distress Markers. Time to send some Happy Mail off to a friend!
