Well it has been a crazy time for me lately!! I told you already that I have been secretly stampin in preparation for the Royal Blog Tour that begins the end of next week. I am hoping you will enjoy those projects. Of course it is also progress report time - as much as I hate having to write all those reports (mostly because I will not let myself do a lousy job of it so it takes a lot of time!!) the good news is that now we are in the final quarter of the school year. Give a shout out for summer...my best season for stampin!!! I have been struggling with one of my son's teachers lately too. Most teachers love to see kids learn..but there are some that are there on a head trip. John is enduring one of those teachers - and unfortunately it is in his weakest subject. I am hoping things look up soon.
I have an exciting opportunity next month to do a craft night for a group of ladies at a local restaurant. That will be great fun...if you are in the Belair area and would like the details just drop me a comment and I will get back to you with the details. The Band Boosters have been very busy trying to do some fund raisers. I am currently investigating a few other fundraisers too. It takes a fair amount of money to keep these groups competitive with the other, better funded schools.
But enough of all that .... tonight I have a new project for you!! I saw a really pretty card on Mary Fish's blog and decided to use the idea of the densely stamped background using an open image. I decided to tone down the background a bit by using Sahara Sand ink instead of black. I sponged the Rose Red ink onto the three flowers in the center - they had been stamped in black stazon ink on white glossy paper. Trimmed them very closely and popped them up on the front - with a spash of glitter in the centers. I love it !- Peggy
