Hugs Sand Kisses!

Isn't this dino adorable? You can click on the card for a close-up view. This is one of several new releases for summer by Hambo Stamps. Check out all of the fun new designs HERE. I just love them all and am excited to show you some more projects later this week. Take a look at Mr. Hambo's (Timbo!) digital designs as well!

I made this for today's SCS Featured Stamper Challenge 220. I was thrilled to see Mercy Kerin as the Featured Stamper. She does wonderful work and has such a great gallery. I chose to case (copy and share everything!) THIS card.

I kept her layout and embellishment placement, but changed images and paper. I added a clip and the sentiment. My images are stamped in Palette Noir Black ink on watercolor paper and then watercolored using reinkers and an aqua brush. Designer papers are Wild Raspberry by K & Co.

I am off to the airport (three hours away) to pick up my son - home from college for three weeks! Yay! Have a wonderful day!
