I have had a crazy, wild, fun, hard, heart-breaking, and blessed summer. Sounds crazy, hugh? But so true. To spare you (and frankly me, too), I will leave out the details except to tell you that my husband has graciously given me this little day in the year to just stamp. Stamping is such a source of fresh wind in my life. And trust me . . . I could use it today. :)
I am going to try and play along with the Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire challenges and fun all day. I have NEVER taken a whole day just to play. This should be interesting and fun. We'll see what really gets done today. So, I am sorry upfront for the post blast that should/will happen today.
The first challenge was to stamp a strip using one of our favorite icons in our stamping stash. I have must have back-to-school on my mind as this is what I came up with.
I like how I went for an obvious, but not-so-obvious, color scheme. I think it works. Do you see the shimmer on the Pinefeather card stock? It is so pretty in real life. I am still unsure of the main image thingy. I will have to keep looking at it to see if I want to make a change. But, otherwise, I was super happy.
This was the first card I have actually made since May. Seriously. Yes, really!! My 4th of July post has been scheduled since like November of last year. :) Sneaky, hugh? And my book was ordered at the end of May. So, let's just say that today is timely and so exciting for me.
Supplies: It is all from Papertrey Ink except the dark green ink (which is Momento) and the spray shimmer (which is from Tattered Angels).
