SSC 212 ~ The Open Sea

Hello and welcome here! Don't you just love the sketches from Stamping 411! What a privilege to play along side this wonderful girls. The creativity that happens with these gals is amazing and we would love for you to join in the fun. So take a peek at the sketch for this week, get that mojo working and have some fun! Here is this weeks sketch ~ as soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what I would be inking up ~

I absolutely adore this stamp set and can't believe it won't be available after August 30th!
I really enjoy creating masculine cards! I guess when you have the right toys, it makes all the difference in the world ~ so the men in my life...well, I guess you can't all get the same card, so I'd better get some more creating done ~ I digress once here is my card ~ and I love it!

Here is a quick peek of the inside of my card ~ gotta run, we have a dear friend and her four children staying with us for the week, so swimming, bbq's, visiting, much fun...have a wonderful week, thanks so much for stopping by ~ do jump over to the girls at Stamping 411 and play along with us ~ I can't wait to see what you come up with!

If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!
