Today is a bittersweet one for me. Emma officially starts Kindergarten this afternoon and I am completely mixed about the whole thing. I am excited for her, because she is *so* ready for this. She is beside herself too, she just can't wait to go to school. But... she's my first, and this is reality staring me in the face: she isn't a baby, nor is she even a toddler anymore (I could pretend until now...), and I know that starting today, time is going to move at warp speed; I'll blink twice and find myself sitting at her high school graduation!
But enough about me... how about a little paper and stamping?
I'll confess... this time around I had to really squeeze out the 10 minutes to get a card done. It's been an incredibly full week around here... we've started some of the renovations on the new house, so every minute seems to be accounted for.
So saying all of that, I kept it pretty simple and did a lot of stamping instead.
Here are the colours we're working with:
Right away these colours made me think of sunflowers, so I knew the stamps I wanted to use. And then I decided I would try to create visual layers by using the generational stamping technique.
Have you noticed that the sunflower patterns of 20 years ago are making a fierce comeback in the fashion world? Makes me feel good and old...
So I finished this one in 7 minutes and 30 seconds. It might have been a bit quicker, but I didn't have a couple of inks when I sat down - distractedd crafting!
