Here’s a Simple Saturday card that meets the criteria for Stamp Simply # 141 – “Flying High and Proud Color Challenge” on the No Time to Stamp? blog.
In keeping with the simple theme, I stamped my image with Outdoor Denim ink and left it uncolored. Can I say again that I love this stamp? Its message is so true – the little characters so cute. That said, there aren’t a lot of layout options for this stamp. I sanded the cardstock, added some brads, and was done with my card in a jiff.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Outdoor Denim, and Cranberry cardstock; Outdoor Denim ink pad; Eat Cake Graphics Land of the Free stamp; Outdoor Denim mini brads; Red star brads from my stash; Sanding block.
Leave it to me not to get the story straight. The trailer bring my mom’s stuff to town is coming today and not Monday. That’s when she’s coming to town to stay. Not a problem. I called my sons, who will be ready to help when the trailer arrives. I’m sure there will be plenty of help coming from home, too. Food and muscle is never in short supply in a family as large as mine. When I talked to her this morning, I mentioned that she was most likely taking a lot more out of that house than she brought in 58 years ago. Yes, she agreed, at 19 years of age, about all she came with was her clothes. When my parents married, my dad’s parents moved from the farm and into a house they purchased in a neighboring town. They left most of their furniture for my parents, and it probably took a lot of years for my mom to make that house one she considered her very own.
Before I get all sentimental, I had better go get some stuff done. I think I’ll make a two-gallon jug of lemonade and have it ready. If it gets as hot as what is forecast, the movers will be thirsty. Have a wonderful day, my friends!
