Hi all! Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I do have cards to share but no time to post. Boo! Josh just started swimming lessons and its been sorta hectic. He is not to crazy about them so I have been trying to go to the neighborhood pool to continue the lessons he learned. He does get in the water and doesn't cry but, the problem is he just holds on to you and won't let go. Any tips would be great! I really want him to learn since my MIL has a beach house and I am always terrified that he will fall into the pier when we go.Anyhoo back to stamping. How about another Unity card? I must admit that this train was my breaking point when I first saw Unity stamps. Since I have a little boy I am always drawn to boyish toy stamps. This one from Unity was so going to be mine! So I bought it :) It's from the "Sweet Baby Boy" set. I combined it with this week's SCS sketch challenge. I flipped the layout to accommidate the image. I colored the train in with my Copics and added some stickles to some areas for sparkle. The wheels are cut out and placed on dimensions for added depth. I also put some crystal effects and dew drops on them. I used my long rectangular nesties to frame the image. I decided to name this card the "Number Train" so I had to add some numbered cuttlebugged paper. I used the numbers collage on SU Bayou card stock. The brad is from Target's dollar spot and the ribbon is SU. To complete the card I did some faux stitching with my white gel pen. So that is all I have today but make sure to come back tomorrow since I have a special card and some exciting news!
