I wanted to at least stamp one thing this weekend...it's hard to squeeze it in sometimes with family stuff going on. So in between baseball practice, dinner with neighbors, a trip to Home Depot, a little straightening here, a little straightening there, and a whole lotta laundry, I tried Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge...she's up to #42 now!
This card uses SU!'s Ginger Blossom designer paper. I think it's just gorgeous. I've had it forever but I think it's the first time that I've actually cut into it. I bought this little bird stamp at AC Moore the other day. It's not a store that I frequent because it's a little bit away from me and I think they're stamps are usually overpriced, but this little guy was on sale and I fell in love with him. I also had some new Memory Box stamps that I used here: the thicker branch is called Bird Branch (E1035), the branch with leaves is called Leaf Branch (D1034), and the thin swirly branch is called Verdi Flourish (C987). I used a few different inks on top of each other so it's hard to make out each branch clearly. The sentiment stamp is from A Muse. This is the first time that I've broken out the Primas in a while...maybe the first time this year! At this rate, when I die they'll have to scatter Primas over me instead of real flowers...I've got a ton of them. I also splurged and used these tiny little pearls from Kaiser Scrapbook that I bought in Florida. Pearls seem to be the thing right now.
