Happy first Wednesday of summer (at least for those in North America)! I am full into summer flying and summer activities with the boys. Camps, swimming and a little more of a relaxed schedule (at least for the kids). I’m working in a little bit of crafting time and I even have an open house/open stamp event today. Nothing like getting to see my stamping friends to brighten a week!
Speaking of stamping friends….my friend Jen Mitchell has our sketch for us over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and you are going to smile and head right to your crafting room! I was so excited for a reason to pull out this gorgeous flower again.
I remain obsessed with this peony stamp from You’ve Got This and am happy just to sit and color it over and over in different shades. For today, I used a combination of retired Blendies and Copics. I joined the image up with this fabulous sentiment from Garden in Bloom…another new favorite! All of the black was stamped using Momento Black. I layered the image panel onto some Smoky Slate and then put it on a Pink Pirouette base. To add a little something special I included these pretty sequins that I just got from Pretty Pink Posh.
The team has created gorgeous inspiration again. No surprise, I know! Every week they never cease to make my jaw drop!
I’m hoping to be able to visit with two of my FMS team mates this weekend (weather and flying permitting). If so, I’m sure you’ll here the squeals and laughs from wherever you are!! I will be back on Friday with the monthly Fancy Friday hop too! YAY!! See you then!
