Soaring by to say Hi *SFYTT*

Well...another week has come and gone and so has my mind, I think! I was able to get all of the teacher, secretary, librarian, etc. gifts done and delivered to the school yesterday. I will share them later. The only gift I have left to put together is for the principal. She will be leaving our school in July and I will miss her. She is great and I have gotten to know her pretty well through PTA. Our last meeting will be in June, so I will bring her gift then. I want to do something extra special for her.

I have decided that it is a pretty great thing that I am on the SFYTT team; mostly because of the amazing sketches Jen puts together each week, but also because at least this way I am posting at least once a week. LOL! I really am trying, but it just isn't happening.

This week's sketch is really fun. I had fun creating my card using one of the new PTI stamp sets which I believe is called "Fly Away". My desk is way too messy after creating, so I can't find the packaging that it came in. LOL! It is a tiny set; one of the five dollar ones, and well worth every penny.
The image is colored using copic and prismacolor markers. I used a lot of sewing on this card, some piercing and sponging. The sentiment is from "Everyday Button Bits" which I thought suited this card well. I was proud of myself for not using more than one piece of patterned paper on this card. I used background stamps and images to create the other papers. I took my color cues from the pattern paper, which is a great combo. I had fun using them all together.
The kids are finally out of school. I am sure it will take us a week or so to get into a new routine. I am hoping that the new routine will be baby friendly and that he won't get too upset having them home. Emma's dance recital was great; she did a great job and looked so cute. I took some pictures of her afterward that I will have to share. I also have some cute ones of Rowan, too.
You won't want to miss the other designers! I have been having a hard time getting myself to everybody's blogs, but they always do such a wonderful job!

Nice card! I really like it! Good boy card, too! Will have to check out that set. Summer will be a good bonding time for the kids! If you can coordinate nap/quiet times-you'll have it made--and we ALL need those no matter how old we are!

this is adorable. I love the color combo and whether you use one PP or many it always looks amazing.
Being a mom is hard. Don't stress about the blogging, being a mom is important and I am sure many of us will always check in when you do have time to post.

Fantastic card! IMHO the best card done with this little airplane stamp. I hope you get a chance to load it on SCS.
