I Think Olive You...

... so what am I so afraid of?

Now you have that song stuck in your head for the weekend :)  you're welcome!

I'm joining in with Unity Stamp's Friend with Flair Friday! Did you see the adorable punny stamps that were just released? I can never get enough puns in my life!

The stamp set is "Olive You" by Unity and the cuties were colored with Copic markers. The olives are popped up on a stitched journal card with a banner accent on top. Pattern paper is from Studio Calico "Here and Now", journal die cut from Lawn Fawn, and banner die cut from Spellbinders.

There's one more card using the March 2014 SMAK kit great subway art stamp.

I accented parts of the stamp by coloring them with Copics. The colors were inspired by my new phone case with blue and yellow stripes :) The image is matted on DCWV "Colored Burlap Matstack" in teal. Of course, some Stickles were added over some of the sentiments to make them stand out.

Have a wonderful weekend and good luck on your NCAA brackets (especially if you have Arizona going all the way)!!

  3. Oh, horrors!!!! Was that David Cassidy that sang that song???????

    I really truly had forgotten that it had been he and the PF that did that. I had to go to YouTube and I can't stop laughing my head off. When did that long-haired baby-faced teen idol become middle-aged, balding, and overweight??? Hahahahahahaha!!! He's prob wondering when those skinny, attractive,
    teenage girls that swooned over him became fat, wrinkled and gray-haired!!! Hahahaha...

    Okay....I really came to your blog for the Unity Hop, so I am off. Thanks for the memories!! :)
