Sneak Peek - Hostess

Good morning, Friends! I can't believe this is the last weekend of June! Nick and I will be leaving on Sunday to go to my parents house in Kansas! Nick is so excited! And so am I! His baseball team wants to do a scrimmage on Sunday, too, and Nick wants to play in that. So, right after it is over, we will leave and drive part way. The best of both worlds! Anyway, then on Friday, Pat will fly out to meet us and then we will all drive home on the 4th so that Pat can get back to work on Tuesday. It will be a quick trip but a very fun one! Nick is excited about doing the fireworks out there. Kansas has way better ones than Colorado - lol! The other exciting part is that my dad is retiring and we are having his party at the same time! Way to go Dad!!

Today's card was inspired by my friend, Becky. She had done one almost exactly like this for card class. I changed up the color a bit and the stamps. This stamp comes from the new hostess set called Simply Soft. I really love this set and you will be seeing more. The stamp is actually an outline stamp but I colored it all in with a marker to make it look like a solid image. I am very pleased with the outcome! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Simply Soft, Three Little Words; Paper- River Rock, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla; Ink- River Rock, Not Quite Navy, Accessories- basic pearls, acrylic block (background for focal image), sponge, dimensionals
