STAMP SCHOOL CHALLENGES

Hi to all my sweet blog friends! I am so happy you have chosen to come back for a visit.  I am still trying to catch up on my challenges, so I am again keeping this short. However, for those of you who enjoy my AROUND MY HOUSE/ON MY WALK section, I will have a goodie for you today.

 

Today’s card is for two challenges at Stamp School, but we’ll get into that after you see the card. I really think this is such a cute card for a little girl. It will be going into my Operation Write Home* box, and we desperately need cards that don’t have a sentiment so they can be used any time, so there is no sentiment on this card today.

This is obviously a card for any little girl who has a loved one deployed. I know some sweetie will enjoy getting it.

The stamp set is Hannah Flying a Kite, although for this card I chose the balloon that is in the set. I paper pieced it and popped it up with a dimensional dot. There is a tree in the set so I stamped the edge of the tree on the edge of the card. There is a small flower in the set so I stamped it 3 times at her hand to make a little posey. Please don’t look too closely at the coloring because coloring is definitely not my thing, and I don’t have those awesome Copics I see y’all using.

The papers and the stamps are from Stamp School. If you have not checked them out, you should! This card stock is awesome! It is a very heavy card stock which is the type I enjoy working with.  The colors are so bright and vibrant, I know you will love working with it too! 

The gorgeous seam binding and lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbons.  Aren’t they beautiful? I don’t remember where the flower shaped button came from. I pulled it from my stash, but it was perfect for this card.

So this card completely took me out of my comfort zone. I think I have even said I would not color, but I won this set and really wanted to make a card for a little girl.  It was fun to make and overall, I think it worked.

ON MY WALK

Today, I have an “on my walk” treat for you.  Joy and I walk around the neighborhood and when we reach the back, there is a low-ground area that is near a creek. It stays pretty wet back there and the sounds are amazing. I wanted you to hear the sounds. It is like this every single time we walk by!  This video is very short, so please enjoy!

Can you hear my frogs???
