I’m on vacation but have been non stop crafting or running errands…..doing all the things that pile up while you work!! Not complaining as I have a lot of request for cards right now so I’m glad I’m on vacation and have time to make then and ENJOY the process.

Enough about that check out the JULY NEW RELEASES at Clearly Digi Stamps!! I’m only previewing two stamps that my husband designed but had several ideals pop up when I saw the other images…just ran out of time!!

The first one is from the Dino’s Digital Image at Clearly Digi Stamps:

Dinosaurs

I remembered I had this OLD Basic Grey paper that was dinosaur theme so I took it out to see if it would match. This paper was just perfect for it….but as I started working on it I felt it looked like a grown-up card not a kid card. But I went with it anyway and really like the card BUT then Lori reminds me I could of used “Older then Dirt” and made it a birthday card for an adult!! Duh…why didn’t I think of that!! I used Seize the Birthday Sketch #20 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) 613 Avenue Create Challenge #28– Birthday

2) Seize the Birthday – Anything Birthday Challenge

3) Card Makin’ Mamas Challenge #72 – Monochromatic

4) Crafty Creations Challenge #230 – Pun Fun

The second card has to do with School…I know seems to early to think about school but actually its not that far away here in the mid west. School starts around Aug 12 so I asked my husband to do a School Theme set for all those BACK TO SCHOOL projects. This is what he came up with – Time for School Digital Image

The other DT members made wonderful cards with the Book Worm and Boy with Backpack so I decided to use the Apple with Worm. I’m actually going to send this to my friend who is a teacher and has been having some “trying” school years lately. The school she is in is in a rough area and the stories she tells is amazing. The school is getting a new principal this year and that can make or break a school year for a teacher. She is an amazing teacher with over 25 years experience so I thought I would send her some encourage as the school year starts next month. I used the Deconstruction Sketch #107 as my inspiration for the design.
