Papertake Weekly Challenge Card

 photo ACertainDarknessStarsCard.jpg I'm playing the Papertake Weekly Challenge today with their sketch #92. I had a new roll of ribbon I found on a trip to Michael's which I designed the colors on the card around. The stamps on the card are by Unity Stamp Company. All the stars (except the tiny ones) are Sizzix Framelit dies plus the circle die too. The tiny stars are the punch outs from a very old corner punch (and I don't know the company which made it...punch is not labeled). I used a ColorBox Nautical ink pad by Clearsnap. I use this ink pad a lot since it is truly good navy. :) Thanks for stopping by. I can't believe it is nearly August 1st. This summer has flown by! It won't be long now before my youngest moves to college. I'm so excited for her (not so much for me---putting another through college----yep, I'll be broke for four years--ha-ha). :) It's been a LONG time since it was just the hubby and I living in our home....so I guess we have fallen into the empty nest catagory. I don't know if I should be laughing or crying....I think it will be a little of each. :)

Hello Card

 photo RunwayInspiredChallengePhoto2.jpg  photo HelloCardRunwayInspiredChallenge.jpg My "hello" card was done for the Runway Inspired Challenge #63. I had to put my "thinking" cap on for this one. I finally decided to do backgrounds with Staedtler Watercolor Crayons and some markers to mimic the designs in the dress. The stamps are by Unity Stamp Company. I colored the raw wood embellishments with markers and then one coat of glitter Mod Podge. Fun card....thanks Runway Inspired for the challenge. :)

The Stamps of Life July Stamp Set

 photo SOLJulyClubSetTwo.jpg  photo SOLJulyClubSetThree.jpg  photo SOLJulyClubSetFour.jpg  photo SOLJulyClubSetOne.jpg It's July and time for a new stamp set from The Stamps of Life. This one is "berry sweet"!!! :) It is called strawberries2love and super fun to stamp with. Be sure to check out all the great samples by the design team here. Hope your summer is off to a good start. My youngest daughter and I made a "road trip" to Dallas a couple of weeks ago. We were visiting with my oldest daughter and went to see "Mamma Mia" (the traveling Broadway version). Was supposed to see Paul McCartney but he had to reschedule his concert for October (so I guess I'll be making that long drive again). Starting to look for things for my daughter's college dorm room in August (sniff, sniff) where she will be attending Mississippi State University. I already miss her!!! :) This "mom" stuff is soooooo hard. :) Stay cool (only in air conditioning in Alabama) and visit again soon.
