We are enjoying our time in Vernon. Daddy left yesterday back to work & the thought of only one more goodbye (OK, two as he has to go back to the island in September, but we're not thinking of that one)... is amazingly wonderful. All the teardrops at bedtime will be a thing of the past - so looking forward to that. I hope this week Mom & I get some stamping time in. I got a few new copics mailed to me (THANK-YOU MARIE!!) and even a new set of nestibilities that I hope to play, play, play. Mom set a table up for me in the formal living room (I know, *only* a fellow stamper can know how we need our space!LOL) so I will enjoy some ink time soon.
I love simple cards. This is one of those. I simply took the flower stamp and my SU markers and inked up - directly on the stamp, huffed (to remoisten) and stamped. I then huffed again and stamped. To add depth, I don't reink... just keep stamping for a nice progression of faded color. I then like to take my Creamy Caramel and stamp a few background flowers. I *love* SU's taffeta ribbon. It's beeeeutiful! This is the taupe. I think I'm a bit of a hoarder ;) just used bits on the side -- couldn't imagine having it behind the stamped image - unseen! *gasp!* I'm thinking this would be a great card to produce a number of.... simply change the sentiment and you could have a great set of all occasion cards.

Wow - August already.... my anniversary month :) 14 years -- guess I'll need to make a card for that one as well!
