This stamp is so sweet and sentimental to me..


I made this card quite a few months ago, but have never had it on my blog.. It so reminds me of my oldest daughter when she was about six years old(she is 23 now!) Anyway, I have been so terribly busy lately that ideas are just swirling in my head.. I hope to have some time by the end of the week to create. I kind of like it when this happens because when I finally DO sit down I can just create for days! So.. this stamp is from Paperbag Studios and I wanted to use a paperbag as the base for the card. I stamped the image using navy ink onto some blue ticking paper. Covered a chipboard corner with red paper, printed the word onto a scrap of cardstock and then stitched it all onto a paperbag I had folded and inked it up well. Added the flower and red gingham brad. Voila.. a true "Paperbag" card. I haven't used these stamps for quite some time.. Think I need to get them out.. Thanks for visiting..

Yep I agree you need to get those stamps out. :) She is a cutie and too cute to not be used. Now that is my lecture on with the praise, love the card.

What a fun country feel this card has. Love the background and all your elements, but that image is just the sweetest.
