Happy May Day! Wasn’t this a great day when we were kids? We had a lot of kids in the neighborhood so there was a whole lot of May baskets going around. We would hang the basket on the doorknob, ring the doorbell and run like crazy because who wanted to get caught? We just couldn’t figure out back then that it was fun to get caught!
So I am celebrating May Day with a bouquet of flowers! It’s a shame that May Day has gone by the wayside so in my small way I am bringing it back!
I started off with this great three step stamp set from Rubbernecker. I stamped the image in black and then the next two steps in daffodil delight and crushed curry. Love those colors together! I used a piece of crushed curry for the card front after I ran it through the linen impression plate.
Do you know how hard it is to find a sentiment that says “Happy May Day”? Try impossible but I used a combination of stamps – I used the happy and day from a Valentine’s Day sentiment and the May comes from my Project Life stamps. A few stamps later and I have a sentiment!! And until I told you, you would have no idea that those stamps are from different companies but the fonts match!
I popped up the sentiment under the flowers to follow the Sweet Sunday Sketch that I am using today. I added some pearls and I was done. I love this sketch and am crazy about this card – the colors are so happy!
Well, that is it for me this week! I will be back on Monday! I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy your May Day!
Thanks for stopping by today!
