It will be here before we know it...only 4 more weeks!!! We've got all their school supplies today and now just need some new clothes and shoes and they'll be looking snazzy!! I make a list of everything they need to make things go smoothly,when we go shopping....you have to when your buying for 5 kids or you'll go crazy!! LOL!!!

You have 5 kids? Oh my, how do you find time to make all of those lovely cards? I mean it, your cards are terrific and today is no exception. Thank you for taking the time to share the card recipe. It makes my stamp wish list longer, but I love to know what products people use. Have a good night! ~Robin

Love your card. I've been thinking of getting a house stamp but not sure how to use it. Thanks for the inspiration.

love the card and the inking on the edges

Beautiful with the inking and layering. Images are great for the sentiment

Gorgeous card! I love the vintage look of the edges. And I'm getting addicted to reading card recipes -- less fattening than cookbook recipes, lol!

I love the ideas of stamping and that's another wonderful way to use this fun sketch!!

Beautiful card! I love the softness of the colors.

Just gorgeous as usual Holley! What a great way to use small stamps (I have many, very neglected little stamps) I may need to case this beauty!

Pryn said...

Beautiful card! The colors are amazing together! The inking really helps pop each block off the paper! Great work!

I really love the multiple mat layers that you used. It adds some wonderful depth.

Great layering on this one! Love all the soft images and the way you trimmed the edges of the ribbon!
