Simple Saturday

Look Up!_2_June 2010

Although I’ve been using the hot air balloon stamps, it was really the cute pennant stamp that was the “clincher” for the Look Up! set from Practicing Creativity Designs. And I wanted it for the reason you see here – a quick and easy, albeit cute and colorful, card. The stamp is also a great example of what makes acrylic stamps so appealing. I love that one can bend ‘em, and for certain, those little flags would not have been as much fun to stamp had a stamp positioner been part of the equation. That as a tool I was more than happy to banish from my corner. We never did get along all that well. LOL.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy (textured), Star Spangled Blue, and Holiday Red cardstock; Black, Holiday Red, Star Spangled Blue, and Sunny Yellow ink pads; Practicing Creativity Designs Look Up! and CTMH Happy Birthday stamp sets.

How is your day going? I just got home from having lunch and then shopping with Mom. We went to the American Legion where service clubs take turns serving burgers and fries every Saturday noon. Always full, it’s the place to be on Saturday. I will have to say though, I felt young amongst today’s crowd, and that doesn’t happen very often anymore. LOL.

And now, I’m off to clean house, figure out a food plan for tomorrow night, and eventually, go grocery shopping. I hope you are having a wonderful day! Later …

PERFECT card! I love it, may have to lift it, the banner was why I bought the stamp set too and I have only used it once!

Super cute card Kathi. That banner is super cute.

I got a tickle about you feeling the youngest. It's all about the company you keep, right?
