This is a High Hopes stamp that I fell in love with because it makes me think of my son, Bryan. He is a landscaper that has his own business and is always working around our house trying to fit our yard into his busy days. He lives in his workboots and they are never tied all the way so they look just like the ones on this cute ant. Bryan, like this ant, loves to be outside and so he always has a smile on his face while he's working. I couldn't resist making the ant blue, my favorite color to use!
I am using this card for Kerry's challenge this week, 3CTC13, make a card that has flowers on it. I made this card when we were up in Vermont and just never got around to posting it. Since it is going to be a busy week at school I decided this card would work since it has a flower as an embellishment.
Peggy and I went to the CK convention in NH Sat. and I bought LOTS of stuff. It was a good convention this year. Basic Grey has a lot of really pretty 6x6 packs. I bought 6 of them there along with 16 more Copics because they were a great price, too good to pass up. I use so much of the BG paper, like on this card. I love that the designs are sized small for cards. If you ever get the chance to go to a convention you really should go, they can be very inspiring, lots of make and takes and you meet some really nice people. Beware though they also take all your money like it did for Peggy and I yesterday. We are going to Springfield, MA to a stamping convention in the beginning of June, guess I should save some money quick!
