La-La Land Inspirational Monday-A Touch of Red

It's Monday and another La-La Land Crafts Inspirational Monday showcase for you. Head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see the awesome creations from my fellow DT sisters. :) If you haven't heard, La-La Land Crafts is posting inspiration every Monday & Friday. My fellow DT members are split into two teams, Team Monday and Team Friday, so you'll get to see tons of ideas with the Marci & Luka line of stamps. You can participate too and upload your creations to the Gallery! We would love to see your work! So get your La-La Land stamps out and join us in our weekly inspiration.

As most of you know, I tend to gab a little (sometimes a lot) on my blog. But today, I'm keeping this post short and sweet. I've been dealing with food poisoning the past week and my system still isn't right this weekend. I've been up in pain for the past several hours (it's 2:00 am). As I was getting cozy in bed, I remembered I didn't get my post ready for Monday. So I freaked out and got on my laptop to get this up and going so it can go live on time. You can see the full recipe for my card at the bottom. :)

Today, I'm sharing my card using the sweet Sugar n' Spice Marci. I think she's so CUTE holding her little cupcake. The 3/4" white grosgrain ribbon is from my stash. I used my Bow Easy to make the double loop bow....I love that thing! It's one of the things in card-making you should definitely invest in. I just wish I had invented it! :)

Here's a close up of Sugar n' Spice Marci. She's colored with Copics and Chalk.

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. I raised up Marci and the sentiment with pop-dots.
