I also have a granddaughter in California. She started the second grade and this stamp, Back to School Girl, also from Lili of the Valley Ltd suited her perfectly. Lili of the Valley Ltd has some very cute stamps. The papers are DCWV "the Grade School stack"; punch EK Success. That's my little granddaughter....very cute!

For the Grandkids

I have 15 month old twin grandsons who live in California, much too far away. My daughter sent me a picture of them sharing a juice cute! I ran across this stamp, Boys-Milk and Biscuits, at Lili of the Valley Ltd and knew I had to have it. It was perfect for the boys. I don't have a lot of boy appropriate stamps, but I am working on it. The papers are Basic Grey "Oliver", dies are neatabilities (oval and fancy tag), copic markers for coloring, crystal effects on the milk glass. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps. All the time I'm coloring, choosing paper, etc., I'm thinking about my boys.

Autumn Wishes

I just love the fall. It seems to bring lots of memories games, my grandparents place in North Dokato, back to school, new clothes, new paper and pencils...the list goes on. When I saw the Anything Goes challenge, I wanted to share my autumn card. I went to my fall stamps from last year and found this one (Harvest Blessings which is on sale right now) from Verve Stamps. I love this set and it felt good to use it again. The paper is from JoAnn Fabrics, Debbie Mumm "Harvest & Holiday." I also used Circle Nestibilities. I used Memento ink to stamp the focal image and distress inks for the leaves and to distress Autumn Wishes. Anyway....I send the best Autumn wishes to you!

Travel Book
I love the word books. I used s.e.i "Black Orchid" papers and some of the matching embellishments. After a road trip this summer, this book will be filled with memories. I had so much fun working on this. I think the papers inspired me. I just love them.
