This card came about because of this week's CPS sketch. I like the sketch a lot and thought I'd try it. I started off by stamping the flowers you see on a different piece of paper and using the paper that came on the sticky side of the foam to shade the background of the flower a little and then cut them out. I liked it but didn't love it. So...I added some flowers on the white cardstock and then tried to place the cut out flowers on top...yeah, no...that didn't work either so I just added a couple of more to what I had already stamped on the cardstock and...this is what you get. The white seemed too white so I used my air thingy (great technical term) and my Chocolate Chip marker to splatter the background a little. You can enlarge the photo's now to see more detail if you'd like...just don't look to close, k?! This stamp set is one of Stampin' Up!'s new level one hostess sets called (crazy enough...lol) "Live Like You Mean It." I do really like the sentiment as it says the same to me as living intentionally which is something I try to do.
Thank you for the well wishes for fun at the fair. Kyler did have a great time and for Todd and I it is like a friend reunion as you see so many people you know! I met the new police officer for the high school last night. It was nice to put a face with a name and he seems like a really nice guy (and good police officer) so hopefully that arrangement will go well for everyone!
This morning Kyler and I are heading off to help decorate the float that the Christian school will have in the parade this year. I think Kyler will be walking along with the float too so that will be fun too and if they ask I will probably walk with it too. The parade is tomorrow so we'll see how much work there is to be done.
Alright...enough chatter from me! Have a super
