Happy Wednesday! It seems I got to stamp a little earlier today than I have the rest of the week. Of course, I am waiting for it to warm up a bit before I head outside. We’ve been trying to get our backyard into shape, and there is so much that needs to be done. Since we had a good rain last night, I’m going to try and dig up a portion of a snowball bush and plant it in the backyard. I’m also on a carpenter bee killing spree, and I tore the steps away from the spa yesterday. I need to coat the bottom of those with waterproof and get them back into place. Elliot is absolutely fascinated with these bees and I’m trying to get them before they get her.

Let’s get on with today’s stamping. It’s a simple card for today’s Splitcoast Sketch Challenge.


The background was stamped with Big Paisley, as well as the pink panel under the sentiment. I used a strip of BasicGrey Sugared for the middle and matched the rest of the paper to that. When the card was finished, the top needed a little something, so I added the ribbon.


  • Stamps: Little Bits Say it in Script and Simply Singles Big Paisley from Lizzie Anne Designs
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; SU Bravo Burgundy and Pretty in Pink; BasicGrey Sugared
  • Ink: VersaMagic Pixie Pink; Ranger Clear Emboss Pad and Archival Jet Black
  • Accessories: Spellbinders Oval and Square Nestabilities; Ribbon; Mounting Tape

I would like to take a minute before I go today, to thank each and every one of you who have read Kate’s Story and made a donation to our 2008 Epilepsy Walk Team, Bug Bug Walkers. Your comments, generosity and thoughtfulness have completely overwhelmed me. I continue to get a little choked up each time I think about it! Actually, it leaves me a loss for words – and here I go again, so it’s time for me to go outside today.
