Fun & Fast Notes

Hello everyone in blogging land! I am so sorry that it has been a while since I posted! I really want to post something new everyday and I fell a little short last week. I have started back to work (after ten years) as a 5th grade teacher. I am also helping out the coach with volleyball. And last week I had to be at school by 7 a.m. to start practice! YIKES! I know that I will have to get up that early for school but I was not prepared for that!! Anyway, we start school on Wednesday and so my posting will probably be happening in the afternoons/evenings. I will do my best to stay on top of things.

Here is a card that I just think is so sweet. This set, Fun & Fast Notes, was a set that demonstrators received for FREE at convention. We had the opportunity to take a class about watercoloring and we used this set in that class to learn all the different ways to watercolor. I wasn't sure if I liked this set but the more I use it the more I like it! It is a very easy set to watercolor! Not too much to the stamps so it is quick and easy!! When I mounted my stamps, I cut off the words on the bottom of each stamp and mounted the words to the side of the wood block. That way I could use just the image if I wanted! For this card I inked up the word thanks... with my marker for the outside and then, after cleaning the stamp, I inked up the ...I needed that. for the inside. The other thing I want to point out is that there is a small rhinestone brad in the middle of the flower. Just to give it some "bling"! Have a great week!!
