Try Stampin #322 How Sweet it is!

Another great sketch and theme. For this one I turned the sketch and put a lot of different cut out stamps on at different dimensions.  I used a set that was in the Occasions Catalog that I love since I bake a good bit sadly it did not get added to the new 2017-2018 catalog.  Living with 4 Sons and Husband meant lots of cookies, they are all grown now and working and my baking hasn't stopped.  I now bake cookies for their lunches and put in baggies in the freezer.  These cookies are restricted to lunch boxes!!!  Cookies in tupperware container are allowed to be eaten in evenings.... BUT I say....when they're gone they're gone!!!!  (Till the Sat. when I once again bake for the following week)   :0)                     (we raise chickens - alas the brown eggs)

Well you didn't come to read about all that, thanks for stopping and I do hope you'll join us in stamping.  (sketch card and theme below mine)

Try Stampin #321

Hi, My garden was growing, now everything is trying to learn how to swim!!!  In the past week we have had over six inches of rain!!!  We have two gardens and the one is lower so that is where my plants are swimming.  We may have to replant some potatoes if they rot because of standing in water for so long  :0(    We are covering the strawberries as they are calling for frost tonight and tomorrow, I really don't want to loose them this will be my first year to pick and they are looking really good and have berries already hanging on.

Here is our suggested theme and sketch,  I love flowers and decided to put that in the center of the card the flowers have a vellum overlay on them that had the small silver hearts on it. After I finished it I thought I should have used a strawberry set that I have and put three n at different stages of growth. Oh well maybe I'll make that later. Thanks for stopping, if you didn't come from the Try Stamping site you should go an see all the designers cards they are awesome!!!

Try Stampin #320 May Days

hello, another week has gone by and it was a busy one for me. I worked everyday at my part time job and I sure was glad to see Friday roll around..:0)

I was glad to get to my craft room today - Sat. -while I did some baking for next week and worked around the house.  I'll be heading to see my sister on Sunday.  The Dr.s are pleased with how well she is responding to the treatment.  Thank you for your prayers.

This card is  a first for me as the only stamping it has on it is the sentiment.  The background paper is designer paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog, I colored it with the watercolor pencils and used a blender pen on it to smooth it out. The  blue I added to the top piece started getting a little fuzzy from to much rubbing so I stopped and decided it was fine as it. You can't see in the picture but I put some clear wink of stella on the dragonflies wings.



THANK you for stopping by I do hope you'll join us and share with us your creation using this sketch and theme if you choose.
