Happy Friday, everyone! It's time for another As You See It challenge, and this is a real fun one! We want you to go back to your first stamping experience and "fill in the blank".....
I distinctly remember my first SU party....we did a one layer Thanksgiving card, stamped a cornucopia in Really Rust ink and added some sprinkles from Itty Bitty Backgrounds! Talk about clean and simple! SU's envelopes were so smooth, they felt like velvet! I was in heaven! I believe my first purchase was Say it with Scriptures, and I used it so much, the rubber is worn down on most of them, LOL! But I know one of my first hostess sets was A Tree for All Seasons, from 2000, and I still have it, so I inked it up for today's card:
I colored it in with markers and mounted it on a stitched square; it's really hard to see, but I also used a sponge dauber (another one of my first purchases) to add a tiny bit of Soft Sky to color the sky. I also used Deckle-edged Scissors (remember them? Another early purchase!) to add a border along my Floral District panel:
I added some candy dots here and there on the DSP as well as my little Pear Pizzazz "hello" and finally mounted everything on an Old Olive Polka Dot Parade piece of DSP:
These fun colors make me think that spring might actually arrive, but for now, it's still pretty chilly around here! I hope you'll play along with us, going "old school" and dig out some of those early stamping purchases! Can't wait to see what you create...share it with us at As You See It!
I took Cassidy to have her hair trimmed last week....getting a style is serious business, apparently:
But a little "pink" brings a grin:
And since she didn't want any hairspray, these gorgeous curls lasted about five minutes!
Thanks for popping in today---enjoy your day and be blessed!
