Your Creative Coach

Last Week

Filed under: Projects — May 30, 2007 @ 10:07 am

Last week did not include much stamping.  May is my gardening month – I had almost everything done by the Memorial Day weekend.  I don’t know how much longer I can do all my edging and mulching – it is so much work.  But at least I am healthy now and it was good exercise.  Here is how my pond garden looks today:


My other big job last week was to take my daughter to Houghton College for Welcome Weekend.  It was a beautiful weekend on campus.  I even met another mom named Kim Wilson!  Here is Caitlin  walking across the quad on her way to the laptop class.  She asked me if I got a laptop when I went to Houghton.  No comment.


And finally this morning I took some time to be creative.  I combined the WW001 challenge (for demos) and the SC126 challenge (sketch) from to come up with this card:


Stamp Set:  Heartfelt Thanks

Colors: Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Basic Black

The background is stamped in Versamark ink

Technique: Chalkboarding – stamp in Craft White ink, pounce on some pastels with a sponge dauber, add the second step stamp in craft white.

I even used some barely banana eyelets.  I have been so in love with our colored brads that I haven’t used eyelets in ages!
