It’s World Card Making Day, and my good friend Jami asked me if I wanted to hop with some of our stamping friends…I don’t tell Jami, “no”. She knows this. Here I am.
If you’ve just happened upon this post, you can go back to Jami’s blog to hop from the beginning…the list of bloggers is not too long, and I know you already adore many of the artist who are participating. If you are already hopping, keep reading.
Jami’s encouragement for this hop was to stamp, just for fun…The main image that I chose to work with is so dear to me, and it’s been begging for ink for over 2 months. At Summer CHA in July, I wanted to send postcards to my kiddos who where at camp that week. Anyone who has been to CHA knows it’s right near impossible to buy postcards or take-home gifts at the convention center. So, I asked Marianne to draw a postcard for each of my girls. She whipped up this cute-ness in about 15 minutes.
This is my oldest daughter…to a T. If you have any doubt, check out this post that is a few years old and scroll to the last picture. Isn’t this image darling? Marianne is so incredible. The image is hand drawn on Copic Blender Card with Multiliner. I brought it home, scanned it into my computer and printed a few copies on Blender Card to color. So, it’s really more of a ‘digi’.
The geese stamped in brown on the background layer are on a very favorite CHF stamp called, Bird Watching. If you read my ‘Married to a Goose Hunter’ post linked above, you know why I love this stamp. It hadn’t seen ink in far too long. I chose to pair it with some Crate paper that had been begging for attention since the mailman dropped it off on Monday.
Inspiration for my card was actually a Splitcoaststampers WCMD challenge posted earlier today…called Bring in the Brown.
I know you’ll be smiling after your next stop on our Just a Blog Hop. Please make a visit to my friend, Miss Anna Wight.
Have a great weekend!
