It's been a long, long time since I've posted anything on my blog.......almost 10 days!
Life has just not given me a chance to get into my craft room......
Lots of good things, but also many meetings and busy weekends leaving me with no "Stephanie Crafting" time.
Unfortunately, this will probably be all that I get to do until the weekend.......
more meetings and some get-togethers with good friends the rest of the week.
So, here it is!!!
This card is for my dear father-in-law who will be turning 87 this month!!!
Can you believe it? I hope I make it to 60, let alone 87!
I honestly have difficulty even imagining everything he has experienced in those 87 years........from no TV to HD and dish networks.......simple phones to cell......phonograph players to downloaded music......
It simply amazes me.
|Doesn't that Corduroy background just look amazing?......Read below to see what I used!|
|I'm going to cross off the word "MINE" and put in "OURS" instead so it will be from both my husband and me. I wish more stamps were made with "collection" words instead of just I, mine or me.|
So, I mentioned in the caption above that I tried a new product. I ordered these huge (and I mean HUGE) stamps about 3 weeks ago. They came and I've had to just stare at them......but, I finally got to break out my new Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card background stamps and Mega Mount.
I AM IN LOVE!!!!
Seriously, if you have never seen or ordered these stamps they are amazing! One roll with the Mega Mount and your card front is completely done and looks awesome!!!
I did use the Viva La Verve May Week 1 sketch to get the mojo flowin'. To be honest, I was quite worried that I wouldn't be able to create a thing.......being that I haven't done so in awhile. I'm glad this sketch made things so much easier.
