Good morning! Does the impending holiday season leave you feeling frazzled? At times, I do.... (Especially when I leave the SFYTT until the last day...where did November go?) My card today is a reminder to...Keep Calm and Recharge! So the next time you are feeling like the Energizer bunny, take some time for yourself...have a latte, read a book, exercise...whatever leaves you feeling refreshed.
Sentiment: Technique Tuesday
Ink: SU! Melon Mambo, Versamark
Paper: SU! Soft Sky and Melon Mambo, Carta Bella "Merry and Bright" DP
Embellies: Energizer AAA Battery, Grosgrain Ribbon (scrap)
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Red Line Tape
Tip: I found that if I inked my stamp first with Versamark and then with colored ink, I achieved a better impression. The battery is heavy, so I used a strip of Red Line Tape to secure it.
I am also entering my card in the following challenges:
Crimbo Crackers: Anything Goes (Christmas or Festive)
Moving Along With the Times: Use 3 elements starting with the same letter (blue, battery, balls)
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
SFYTT (November): Sketch
Tuesday Throwdown: Lots of Layers
Thanks for stopping by!

Love the Versamark tip - I know it works a wonder when I'm using Distress inks with clear stamps :)
And, BRILLIANT idea for a card! I have so many batteries - the kids go through them like water!
