About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

After doing my Saturday chores and errands, I had time to make a card for the Freshly Made Sketches #200. Congrats! to everyone at Freshly Made Sketches who bring us such fun sketches every week. I made this card for my nephew, who as I write this, is making his way from Portland, OR to St. Paul, MN for college. He and his mom, my sister, are driving the 1800 miles and they started out this morning. Since I already have his mailing address at school, I will mail this Monday so it's there about the time they arrive. I thought it would be fun for him to get his first mail at his new "home" away from home.

My nephew is a fine musician, and he mostly plays guitar. He also writes and sings. This image is actually a Ukulele, and I believe he plays it as well. And, the sentiment, #Awesome, because he is!

Stamps: Ukulele wood stamp from @RSP, Hawaii, Music Notes wood stamp from Great Impressions and #Awesome! stamp from Reverse Confetti
Paper: Taylored Expressions Choice Snow White and textured navy card stocks
Ink: SU Night of Navy, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie ink
Other: Die-namics Inside Out Diagonal Stitched Stax Rectangle die, sequins, the Big Shot,

Thanks for looking in,
