Today You are You

I love Dr. Seuss so I was especially happy to find one of my favorite quotes in the Hopscotch Picture My Life cards.


I used 8 of the Hopscotch cards to make this step card, and I matted the layers with Indian Corn Blue cardstock.  The tallest layer is made up 4 cards.  I used the base card with flowers, but I wanted them to pop a little.  Because there are two of each card in a set, I grabbed the other one and fussy cut the flowers to pop.  The clouds and rainbow are from a 3x4 card, and so is "perfect."  I pulled out my remaining Smoothie buttons and brads (you can't hoard forever) for embellishment.  Three cards make up the second layer.  The circles are actually the centers from large flowers.  I used the Operation Smile stamp, You're the Bomb, for my stamped sentiment on the front fold.  I found the directions for this card HERE, and I altered the dimensions to suit my needs.

I haven't played along with challenges for quite some time, so I am going to enter this into the Heart 2 Heart - Old is New - challenge.

In case you don't remember the rest of the quote...


Thanks for popping in today!  I sure do appreciate your visits!!

Would have never thought of using pml cards on a step card. I have't made a step card in ages but you have inspired me to make one. Thanks so much for joining us at Heart 2 Heart

This is adorable, what an inspiration you are! I too love Dr. Suess. Once there was a Dr. Suess category on Jeopardy and I got every answer right! {tee~hee}
