After the storm

Today I am sharing another stamp that I bought at the yard sale last spring at my LSS.  Yesterday I went to another one they had and found a few more, I still haven't used all the ones from last time, I love getting stamps that I have never used or seen before at good prices.

This one went out to my Nephew who turned 35, he was my sisters first baby and such a cutie and still is today :)

I will have to say I wasn't as thrilled with my coloring on this one and think I may have gone a bit over the top on the stickles on the sun rays, still learning, I did though like my idea to add the pine cone with the sentiment tag.

Northwoods -- After the storm stamp, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- Wavy rectangles and A2 Distressed Edges dies
Recollections -- Awesome boy papers
American crafts -- Jute
ODBD -- Mini tags dies and mini tags sentiments stamp
Stampin up -- pine cone 1997 set
Stickles -- Diamond on sunrays
Wink of Stella -- Clear glitter pen on water

Hope your weekend has been good so far and you enjoy a wonderful Sunday.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hi,

Oh, Connie, this is gorgeous, and I love your coloring! The lake is a beautiful blue that is really stunning and seems to show the depth and reflection of a lake. Amazing! I'm sure the sparkles from the Stickles are beautiful. I love seeing the Northwoods boards they have, and they always use love of sparkle. I know you cute nephew will love it! It is really nice to find great stamps a good prices! Hugs, sweet friend!

that's great if you can find stamps at a discount. i have always thought they were a little expensive, but then i think of what they provide and then, not so much!!!

the card is beautiful, you are way to hard on yourself!!!!

Happy Sunday

It turned out wonderful, Connie, and the perfect card for your nephew. It's amazing how beautiful the stamps are these days. I am always searching through the discount bins, as they do seem rather expensive sometimes. Hope you have a good week! x Karen

Ooh, what a lovely stamp you found! I think the colouring works beautifully, and the pine cone really brings the theme to life! I fancy a forest walk with the scent of pine : )
Have a good week, Connie.

I think it is wonderful that you take the time to make a card and match what the person will like. You are very good at making the most personal and caring cards.

Personally, I love the Stickles on the sun rays, and your coloring looks fabulous! The water looks so real. Perfect card for your nephew. Reminds you a little of your trip, probably. Gorgeous!
