Hi there -

I have a fascination for those multi layered stamps...but they take work and practice. This time I decided to just go with the practice flowers and I made them into cards.  I had to trim them out, since I stamped them in odd directions not quite knowing how they'd lay out. They're not perfectly stamped, but they make a sweet card.

They'll be hitting mailboxes later this summer. 

I use my iphone for photos, and the Iphone can skew the edges of a card in a wonky way. Its been irritating me for a while now.  I did discover that if I photograph the card flat instead of standing up it will lessen the wonky effect.  I have a few 12 x 12 papers I use for backgrounds. 

A few days ago I went to a big box store to get some 110lb cardstock in white that  I used for my bases and while I was in the paper aisle I found more woodgrain 12 x 12 sheets for photographs. They are so fun, white washed, distressed, blue, pinks and a really dark one are being added to my backgrounds stash.

I am visiting my Dad, so there are some pre posted posts coming your way.

Thanks for stopping.
