First, I dreamed that Shep Smith was my brother and we were on a trip at this place in Snow Bird we went to when I was little. Thankfully my dream did not include the trip up the scariest road in the world that leads to Snow Bird. I'm surprised this road doesn't pop up in nightmares from time to time. Oh - wait - now I'm scared to go to sleep tonight!
At some point during the vacation it turned into that whole "I forgot to show up for a History test" nightmare. Why do we have those scary school dreams all our lives? Were we that anxious? I really enjoyed school for the most part, minus the odd differential equations and astronomy episodes, so I don't know why I still panic about it in my sleep sometimes.
Thank goodness there are no tests in stamping!
But speaking of school, one of my favorite stamp sets in the world is Greeting Card Kids - I used it for my Christmas card last year and I might have to use it again. I have a general rule that I don't really stamp humans, but this set is such a sweet, sweet exception that I used it for the Playing With Our Peeps challenge on the Touch Twin blog. You should play too because you might win a set of 12 markers! You have two more days to play.
Stamps: Greeting Card Kids Ink: Memento Paper: Real Red, Silver Glimmer, Mocha Morning Specialty Accessories: ShinHan Touch Markers: YR132, YR133, R11, R14, R131, R139, CG0.5, CG2, CG3, CG4, GG1, 120
Part of the reason I don't stamp humans often is that the images can be too realistic, not realistic enough or just creepy! But these have a Campbell's Soup / vintage look that I love. I decided to highlight the apple and the book on this card and do the rest in skin tones and shades of grey to get that contrasty pop I love so much.
The background is that fun fuzzy Mocha Morning Specialty paper, Silver Glimmer Paper and some Real Red Satin Ribbon.
Aren't they sweet? They just warm my heart. I hope they don't have test anxiety! :)
What are your stampy plans for the weekend? I plan to get my Witching Hour on again to get some things done.
