Paper Smooch-y Thanks

Hello!  Well I had such an amazing Saturday.  Today is actually my hubby’s birthday (happy birthday babe!), and since he was spending his day helping his uncle build a deck, I decided to bring the little man with me and head down to visit my parents and attend the volunteer firefighter’s family picnic.  My dad has been a volunteer fireman for many years (30+)… longer than I’ve been alive, so that’s a lot.   I remember the family picnics from when I was young and how much fun I had, so of course I wanted to carry on the tradition with Nathan.  Here is a sweet little pic of Nathan and my dad:

Nathan and Grandpa

He really did like the helmet, and I missed a smile by a fraction of a second!  grr..

Anyway, the card I want to share with you today is just a quick one that I whipped up for a friend of mine:

Thanks smooches

The stamps are from a Paper Smooches set.  I stamped the “thanks” in black ink first, then cleaned my stamp (or so I thought) and stamped it in versamark to create a lighter watermark type of impression.  I guess the stamp wasn’t fully cleaned as you can see.  However, I liked the results so I left it.  The letters were coloured in with copics, and I popped the stamped layer up on the card base with some dimensional adhesive.


Update on Stretch Your Stamps – I am currently working on my day 3 course work (only 3 days behind…), and it is the most frustrating, but gorgeous, card.  I hopefully will get it done and share it with you tomorrow – along with days 4, 5, and 6. 


Thanks for stopping in!
