I totally didn’t realize I hadn’t posted in 2 days, lol!  We are having a garage sale this weekend and I just got busy getting all that together!  That and watching the entire series of Bones.  I just finished season 1 – loved it!  Thanks Jenn for getting me involved in yet another show~!  But seriously, how cool is it to just rent 4-6 episodes for $1.07 (tax included) at Blockbuster?  I love that.

Anyway, this was a card I showed during the release party GinaK had earlier this month.  And I never posted it here!  I love the Kindred Spirits line she came up with – very cool, realistic images.  And the sentiments for them are all so useful and heartfelt.  This is another summer kid fun image…or I guess it doesn’t have to be summer….

Also – I wanted to point out that the actual stamp image is not that wide.  I extended the creek and grass to the edge of my cardstock and drew the lines in with a Zig Millenium pen.  (You can totally tell which parts I drew cause I suck at drawing!) But I think overall it wasn’t terribly noticeable that it was drawn in later.  The actual image looks like this:

And here’s mine with the extra drawn on….


supplies: Exploring Nature by Gina K Designs, Sentiment from Kindred Greetings for Kids; long rectangle nestabilities; polka dot organdy from May Arts; pumpkin grosgrain from SU; palette noir ink; koh-i-noor woodless pencils, OMS and blending stumps; dimensionals; Dude! papers by Corina Nielsen for Prima; stickles for the top of the plants.

And woohoo!  Scrapbookpal.com got the long rectangle nestabilities in!   I’m collecting them one at a time…..the good thing about rectangle (and squares) is that you can get the scalloped ones first and just cut a rectangle (or square) to fit inside until you can buy the plain dies.  I mean – I love the embossed imprint the plain dies give you – so so classy.  But I couldn’t swing buying them all at once, so I just got one scalloped set (above on card) and then cut the image to fit inside it.  It’ll work until I can get the rest!

Ok, off to bed so I can’t get the garage opened up nice and early tomorrow!
