I've got a new stamp set taking up residence on the coveted "favorites shelf". Framed. O.M.G. When I first saw it, I'll admit to scratching my head a bit. I mean, come on, I could do that with a pen and a ruler. And then I used it and holy moly...this thing is the best ever. Just so simple to create a stunning card in a matter of minutes. Definitely makes it easier. I'm a convert. And it is forever going to be a set that I reach for first.
Here's a baby card using the rectangular frame, Mega Mixed Messages, Inside/Out Baby, and a tricycle stamp (I believe it's called It's a Good Life) from Unity. A little touch of white gel pen adds some pizazz to the trike
Hank's got a little red trike of his own. Two actually. I really wanted him to have the classic, nostalgic Radio Flyer trike and bought it for him for his BIG birthday gift in February. Kid couldn't reach the peddles. I felt so bad I went to Walmart the next day and bought him the smaller, more modern version. So now he has two. And can ride neither one. Doesn't get the pumping motion yet. Sigh. He will. Maybe over the winter. He can practice in the basement. In the meantime, I buy trike stamps because they remind me just how sweet childhood can be. Love the silhouette of them.
OK. Free night for me. I have a book, an open window on a rainy night, and a glass of wine calling my name. Sounds good, doesn't it?
Pssst...that baby picture totally distracted you yesterday. My plan worked!
