It was a hot one yesterday!
The temp in the car was 91. WOW
Suppose to be cooler today in the mid 70's. Much better
as we are driving over to visit with Grandma Kate.
We did go for a drive yesterday. Stopped at Honey Hut and got
malts. They were good and helped cool us down.
Also stopped by Target as I'm still looking for the Generation doll I want.
I'm looking for Evelyn. Looks like she will have to be bought from Amazon as
I've scoured all the Targets around me and she is not to be found. I was
also looking for another sewing machine kit for my friend Lisa as she wants one
too, but sadly not to be found. I think they were an earlier set, and doll.
Me and my friend Marianne are doing an ATC swap.
These are the ones I came up with. I used a retired set from
Stampin'Up called Classic Captions. And I think the other one is
called postcards. Its a really old set. It was the first one I ever bought from SU back
On this one I used Tim Holtz distress ink and honeycomb stencil. The
image was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with black embossing powder.
I added the 5 cent brad in the upper corner. It represents me being in my 50's. Love the
words under the image. Yes Mama did tell me there would be days like this. LOL
Another one done with distress inks and stencil.
I inked a chip and stamped smile on it with StazOn black ink.
Added some pearls across the bottom. Gotta love Mona!
This one was a first attempt at stamping on muslin. Didn't get good
coverage with the ink, but I still like it.
And of course I had to stamp the backs and fill out the ATC info.
Hope Marianne enjoys them.
