This card makes me smile. It’s whimsical yet classic, I think. I embossed the stripes, then dragged white craft ink pad across to add a little pop. I always forget how much I like coloring my stamps with markers for all the different colors, rather than just inking the stamp on a pad and coloring in later. It’s a happy little card.

And now I’m off to pick up my mom at the airport…she’s here for the weekend, so my sweetie and I are headed to Door County (up north) for a getaway. We were supposed to be flying to Kansas City for an annual recruiting training conference for the next 5 days, but the Army has no budget yet, so the trip was cancelled last week. Oh, well, it’ll be fun to check out the almost local sights instead!

Hope you have a fun weekend and find time to craft a little!

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
