Card Class

My first card is using a brand new set called "Artistic Etchings". I love this set! I also used a Stampin Up embossing folder for the background paper.

I stamped the tower on vanilla paper, then masked it (using another piece of paper) then stamped the French Script background stamp over it.

I took the tower and stamped it again on another piece of paper and cut it out,and pop dotted it on the previous image. I added some buttons using mini glue dots.

I used some new background paper and shaded the edges using my new Espresso ink pad. Not hard to make and I love the results.

Now I just need to see Paris in person!

Contest Winner

There was a coloring contest at Vacation Bible School and Lily won 1st place!

She had to color and design Joesph's Sarcophaqus and here's what she did..

She won a beach chair and gave it to Sawyer..So sweet. He loves it. (See it in pool post...)

Card making with a friend

Lily and her friend Rayn made a few cards using my Copic markers, and a Hero Arts stamp set. They were quite busy stamping, cutting, coloring and had a grand ole time. Very cute cards as well!

Popsicle + pool + dinosaur = fun

I set up the pool outside to give Sawyer something to do while I was cleaning up the kitchen. He asked for a Popsicle and I told him to eat it outside...

here's the cool way to eat it.

A beach chair-luxury seating poolside.

Having a plastic dinosaur to share it with is also fun.

Yum yum
