OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Sketch 193 was my inspiration for this card.  I went with the sentiment "When my mind wanders, I usually find it somewhere thinking of you."  Perfect if you are deployed or the person at home missing them.
Stamps:  Blooming with Hope Ink:  Tuxedo Black  DP:  WW, Night of Navy, DP paper pack, watercolor paper Misc.:  Blendabilities - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Linen Thread
Happy Memorial Day!

VC Rocks Blog Hop

With the hop focusing on tools, I took my envelope punch board out of the box and learned how to use it.  This is an awesome little gadget!  Of course, the tag I made was too small for the measurements listed on the board so I had to figure that out on my own.  I now have 6 various sized envelopes needing to be used. I loved how easy it was to score, punch and round the corners with this gadget.  
Stamps:  Petite Pairs CS:  Lost Lagoon, Basic Black, WW, Watercolor Wonder DP, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi Ink:  Tuxedo Black Punches:  Scalloped Tag Topper, Blossom and Oval (leaves) Misc.:  Envelope Punch Board, Spiral Flowers Die, White Bakers Twine, and Lost Lagoon Stitched Ribbon
I used a 3-5/8" square of Pool Party CS and started at 1-7/8" for this 2" wide tag.

Enjoy the hop!

Sock Monkey Thank You

I'm sending this card made with the Sock Monkey stamp set to my cousin to thank them for a gift card.  I recently sent my cousin's daughter 34 sets of stamps and designer paper, cardstock and a lot of embellishments for her new interest in stamping and paper crafting.  She (daughter) made me a card from what I sent and included a $15 gift card to Taco Bell and a school picture.
