I teach music part-time in an elementary school here, and it is time for my regular job again. Sad, isn't it? I will definitely miss stamping every day, but do have to pay for my hobby (and college tuition!) somehow, so work it is!
And it is exciting to arrange my room, and unpack things, and get ready for a new school year. My daughter and I took an overnight trip earlier this week to buy some school clothes and supplies and that was fun. Saw a great chick flick - "The Proposal" -- I recommend it for some fun and laughs and awesome scenery!
So what do I have today? Well, a BLOG CANDY winner for one -- keep reading!
And a card using this week's SCS Inspiration (#193) and Sketch (#241) Challenges.
I chose this embroidered work by Jessica Polka for my inspiration. And HERE is the sketch, which I turned sideways.
I stamped one of the verses from Jesus (Our Daily Bread designs) in Not Quite Navy ink and cut and embossed with the Large Rectangles Nestabilities. The border along the bottom is the Grand Illumination Border from Spellbinders. It is 12 inches long, so I just cut what I needed. I sponged Bashful Blue ink on the border before I took it out of the die.
The designer paper on the top is by My Mind's Eye, and the bottom is K & Co.
I love blue and white together!
And now for a long-awaited Blog Candy winner! Last Sunday I posted the two new sets from Chicken Girl Design Stamps, and was offering Hugs From a Bug as blog candy. I used random.org to choose my winner. Congratulations to PEGGY!!
