ETA: Someone asked which nestabilities I use for my ribbon slides. You can find them here.
Well...we made it through our first week of summer vacation. All I can say is that if they are all like this one, summer is going to be GREAT!!!! The kids and I have had a lot of fun. I have kept them busy and active, even reading and stuff! Now I am not saying that the T.V. hasn't been watched or the Wii played, but it has been kept to a tolerable level. I did think that I would be able to sneak a little stamping time, but that didn't happen. The kids are off at their friend's house, so I took the time to get my SFYTT card done. Three focal images later, and here I am! LOL!
I chose my papers because I really wanted to use this stamp set. I thought that the flowers would look really great with the colors and it is a combo that I normally wouldn't use. I just wasn't feeling it, so I moved on to focal image two, using the bicycle image from this set. Still not feeling it. Last but not least, I used the stems from the same set (thank goodness) and chose to bring in the colors using buttons instead. The stamping ended up being minimal, but I think it turned out cute. What's not to love about a bunch of buttons?
My sewing machine got jammed as I was about to sew my last stitches, so it is a bit naked here and there, but I wasn't in the mood to un-jam it just yet. I am tired...I guess entertaining the kids this week really did a number on my energy level. It is a good tired, though. The kind of tired that makes you sleep really good and wake up ready to go. Maybe the sewing machine will get un-jammed tomorrow! LOL!
