I'm back! I took a day off to celebrate Independence Day! We did the normal 4th of July things...swimming, eating, fireworks and more swimming. Whew! It was a hot and FUN day.
I was playing around with the CTMH 2007 June stamp of the month, Typewriter Keys, and came up with this THANKS card. I wasn't sure if I would like this stamp set and I really do. The letters stamp easily and I punched them out with a 3/4 inch circle punch and matted them on Colonial White cardstock that I punch from a 1 inch circle punch. This is the first time I used faux stitching on the stems. This set comes with stems for the flowers, but I felt like using a technique I see often on cards and have never tried. I like it for a nice stitched look and I didn't have to sew. YEAH!

Marcia Mattos asked, "What are your favorite colors?" I would have to say Autumn colors. I love them all...Autumn Terracotta, Olive, Plum, Navy, Burgundy and Chocolate. Autumn is my favorite season too. Good question!
I wanted to let you know that I am planning and organizing for a 15 hour crop on Saturday, so you might not hear from me much over the next couple of days. I should have some things to show you once I get back in my normal routine.
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!
