Goofy Gumballs

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! I've been really sick for the past 3 weeks but I'm finally starting to feel better. This is the second time this year I've had this nasty flu virus & it is no joke! Both times it completely knocked me out for several weeks. Ugh!

Anyway, I'm happy to be back in my craft room & I've actually been fairly productive. Today I have 2 cards to share. They're really just 2 variations of the same card but I could keep making these all day! I just love the bright primary colors & I'm having so much fun coloring with my new watercolor brush pens! They work perfectly with these Lawn Fawn stamps....
