Hi stampers! Happy Friday! I've done it again…failed at posting! I was even at my mom's house the week between Easter and last weekend. I thought I'd have SO MUCH FREE TIME…yeah right, lol! Where does all the time go? I guess by the time we went to town to grocery shop Monday, my mom worked at her volunteer job Tuesday (much longer than she said she would…although I predicted that, lol), we went to Decatur for a lunch date and for haircuts for the three of us (yep, Ian got his first haircut!), and I had a baby-free shopping day Thursday time just got away…LOL! Friday we were off to Jon's parents so again, no time! We spent some time with them and then surprised my dad at church for his 63rd birthday. He has led the children's choir there for 28 years so they had a little recognition program for him. I think I need a vacation from my little "vacation". Hehe!
I did manage to get my card made for this week's Fab Friday challenge though, hooray! I was unsure what stamp set I wanted to use and kind of wanted to use a new one (I got a few new ones at the end of SAB) but as I looked around I thought the way to go set would work perfect for this sketch since the congratulations sentiment was just the size I needed!
You may notice a few colors I haven't used much of lately! Pacific point and old olive (gasp) have been long neglected!!!!
I used markers on my stamp which isn't ideal for photopolymer (that's one of the few drawbacks to them) BUT I think it turned out kind of cool looking since it was a bit mottled. I really wanted to do it in multiple colors. I figured if it didn't turn out well at all I could always go to one color if I needed to. But like I said, I kind of liked the way it ended up.
Make sure to visit Fab Friday and check out all the other projects and play along with us!
