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

Handcrafted Hello

Happy, Happy Friday Crafters,

I love Friday's for the obvious reason that the work week is done, but this Friday is even more special because I'm on vacation for two weeks. Our friends from the Boston area are arriving on Tuesday evening for a week, and we have some fun planned. After they leave, I have plans for my craft space. I have ordered new furniture, from IKEA, and storage, from Organize More, so my second week off, I'll be redoing my space. I plan on taking everything out, painting, then putting in the new furniture. I CAN'T WAIT!

After dinner last night I made a card using this week's Freshly Made sketch. Like many, I've let the patterned papers do most of the "work" and I do like the way it turned out. The stamps are from SSS February kit.

I stamped the greeting using my Misti to make it nice and dark. The final inking was with VersaMark so I could heat emboss it to make it shiny. The craft tools are not embossed.

Here's the inside:

The Olympics start tonight, and I'm looking forward to watching. Are you?
