Quickie Mini Monday -- Or maybe not !!

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.

Hi everyone,

Sorry to tell you that today will not be a 10 minutes monday, not that I did not tried, but you know how sometimes, the cards, stamps or papers are ruling the world in their own strange ways...That was one of these cards... but don't worry CeeCee as a Quikie-Mini-Sparkly-Fun Friday in store for you. I guess you'll just have to wait...

So for today's card, I wanted to make a "Bon voyage" card for my friend and Card à-la-carte partner Catherine because she left yesterday for a much needed and well deserved vacation to sunny and hot Florida. Lucky her because here it's freeeeezing !! But I didn't have anything that screamed sun, hot or airplane... This is when I thought Ice cream... humm still didn't have any stamps for that...but what if ...and with that punch.... and then this sentiment... Finally today's card is probably a What-Can-I-Turn-That-Into Monday !! Anyway here's the card and it is also the sketch from FTL no 76 Challenge
And here's my version of the sketch:

Can you guess what stamp set was used ???
and here's my version especially for Catherine, I did change a bit the sentiment so it better fitted my needs...

Basically, it says "enjoy your day" but now it's "enjoy your week"
Cardstock are sahara sand, whisper white, pretty in pink and rose red, DSP is the free one from SAB, ink are pretty in pink, sahara sand and crushed curry. I also added some shimmer paint mist (alcool and white shimmer paint in a misting bottle) all over my sahara sand scallop circle.
So did you guess... it's the little hat from Beary best friends in the build-a-bear-workshop collection, flower blossom punch and good neighbor DSP paper from SAB.

Have a nice stampin' day!

J'adore votre carte! It's fab. I love seeing all your french comments too. I'm learning french so it's fun trying to work out what people are saying in the card making world, rather than just in text books!! :o)
