Stamp It Pub!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  Can you believe it's Thursday already?  Both kids are in school today so it's going to be a quiet and different day!  Did you read my post before this one, the one with pictures and sharing with you my day?  Well I thought I would share that yesterday after a busy morning (Stay and Play Winter Carnival I helped run the craft table) I spent the afternoon on the couch with a long leisurely nap!  I was tuckered out and I don't know the last time I spent an afternoon on the couch! I think I may have overdone it on Tuesday and than I had a bad sleep!  Feeling back like myself today!

Have you seen?  This week on the Paper Crafts blog it's Stamp It week!  I am really blessed and have a card in this issue!  I was so excited to be asked to take part!  Another goal met! I got to work with an Avocado Arts stamp set Perfectly Perfect Day!  I worked with the kite and clouds images!  I  made 3 cards for this and they would pick one, today I am sharing the two that didn't get picked up you can see the one that did get picked up in the issue!  :>  The third one is the one that got picked  up (which I agree it's so much better!) Here is the other two in the order I made them:

I embossed the kraft card with the Spellbinders Trendy folder, added twine and used paper from Hello Summer by Echo Park!

For this card I also used the Hello Summer by Echo Park for the kite, and did a lot more stamping with the grass and in white the clouds in the background!

I had a lot of fun playing with this set, it really is such a cute set!

Well that's it from me!  I am off to give the house a once over quick clean, you can clean up so much faster when no kids are home and it stays clean well until the return!
