I know you are as happy to see this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches as I was! Because it is awesome….just like Jen Mitchell who designed it! It lends itself to so many interpretations either super clean or with a bit of embellishment.
I opted for super clean and pulled out some brand new stuff from the upcoming Stampin’ Up catalog (launching Jun 2nd). First of all I used the cool dots from the stamp set called Dotty Angles. Yep….you will want this one right away!! I combined it with one of the cards from the Project Life by Stampin’ Up (PLxSU) set Everyday Adventure. These are just as cute on cards as they are on scrapbook pages. I tied on the new Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine with a Crushed Curry button to finish. Super fast, super fun and really cute (at least I hope you think so).
I was off on this wonderful field trip yesterday with my oldest son’s class. We went to downtown DC and visited both the National Gallery of Art and the Vietnam Memorial. I’m back to the stamp room today but it sure was great getting to see the kids’ impressions of those amazing places. The docent at the gallery really showed the children how to find a story in pieces of art. I could not believe how insightful they proved to be. And “the Wall” is such a powerful memorial. The magnitude of sacrifice was not lost on the kids. I teared up when my son spontaneously went up to some veterans there to thank them for their service. The gentlemen shook his hand and even took pictures with him. The group we saw had traveled from Wisconsin and I hope my son’s voice helped to provide closure for the times when they were not given due respect. It was a proud mom moment, I must say.
Ok…back to stamping! I hope to be able to see YOUR story in the art you create with stamping this week. I know the DT has lots to show you! Thanks so much for dropping in today. I’ll see you again soon!
