Good morning (well, it's morning here in Western NY)! I hope you are well today!
Happiness is coloring images with my copics! Here is Roasting Rita and I think you can see what brings her happiness!

Rita is one of the Humorous Seniors stamps at I Brake for Stamps. They are so fun to color and make into cards for friends!

This card is called a Hinge Card, I think. You cut your cardstock 4.25 x 11 and score at 5.5" . then on just the front, inside you score at 1.25 inches from the center score. I always use my Scor-Pal or my new Scor- buddy for scoring. Then you use strong adhesive, like Scor tape to hold the 'hinge' part together. Tie the ribbon through the inside BEFORE adhering together! then just the fore part opens and the left side becomes the 'hinge'!
Though it is still summer we had a drastic change in the weather for yesterday and today. It really feels like fall so I was drawn to the Basic Grey plaid paper which looks like a flannel shirt! The papers are from the Max and Whiskers 6 x6 pad.
We still have our family camping trip coming up soon. I sure hope the weather improves a bit!
