Stamping Vacation No No-No sparkle
My memory is so bad, I admit it. I started this card about three weeks ago for a challenge, so if the layout looks familiar, it was a sketch I saw on a challenge that runs on fridays, but I never got around to finishing it. That is all I remember! Do you think that is bad? Well I have had this adorable dog stamp since April! Do I remember what company it is from? Well... of course not.... I am so bad.
What I do remember is I bought this stamp at a stamp show I went to with my friend last spring and it reminded me of Winston. (Winston is my little buddy... he is an eccentric old dog... more about that in a sec) and I know this paper is Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers
That is Winston a few years ago. Anyone that knows me very well knows that I love animals. Cats, dogs, rabbits, birds... love them all... so my point? What prompted me to finally get that stamp out and use it? My husband was on a rampage about my little buddy Winston. Winston has some bad habits, he makes odd noises, scratches all the time and other dog type behavior problems. (That is why I call him eccentric.) However, that day he was a little naughtier than usual, so my husband was mad. Thus, he unknowingly inspired this card! Anyone else that knows me will tell you I am a mother bear, whether it be to my human children or my "animal" children. (It is sometimes hard to tell which are truely human and which are animals!)
On to humans now. Just wanted to share a picture from my one tank trip a couple of weeks ago. We took the kids to brandywine falls in the Cuyahoga Valley park area. Of course it rained for the whole hike, but we had fun anyway. My children are the tall one on the left, the fourth one over and the little girl next to him. They all brought a friend... thus the extra kids.We didn't have much rain this summer so the river was low.
I also wanted to mention that I do have the design team all chosen for my store, and will be back later this week when I have more time to announce the new design team.
I think that is it for now.
