I'm off to Neverland this week (ok, family vacation out West) but I hope you enjoy the posts I have scheduled for you! They will be liberally interspersed with family posts the next two weeks, so, BONUS---you get to see pictures of my cute kids cavorting on the mountainside in Wyoming, plus pictures from a Las Vegas getaway I have planned with just hubby while my parents keep the kids. He deserves to be spoiled with a fun trip, since he had to stay home while we went to Disney World! Poor guy.
This is the card I made for my fantastic father in law for Father's Day this year. I didn't buy this stamp set when it was in a mini catalog last year, even though I really liked it, so I was delighted to see it "make" the new catalog this year. The Open Sea is a great set with all different sizes of nautical images, and they really come together to make fantastic cards. I used the Woodgrain background stamp on this card, with Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
Look at how incredibly vibrant the Early Espresso ink is! I sure love the new ink pads. I didn't realize before how hard I had to try to get a really good solid inking, until I tried these next-generation pads and was completely wowed. Have you tried them yet? Prepare to be amazed!
