Well, we have returned from family camp. We got home in enough time to unpack, do laundry and re-pack the boys for camp again. This week they will be at Covenant Acres, a camp they go to every summer. You know what that means?? A kid-less week for DH and I! Wahoo!! There is that little thing called work but I hope it also means lots of time to stamp and maybe even time to catch a movie.
I am participating in week 2 of the Cornish Heritage Farm summer challenge and this week the focus is on paper piecing. I made this card before I left last week but ended up tweeking it just a tad before uploading it to their gallery.
It uses 2 sets by Kim Hughes, Spring Trees and Tag! You're It. All the designer paper is from DCWV's Green Stack line. That paper is fun and made from mostly recycled materials. I created a frame using Spellbinders Curved Rectangle dies, embossed it with a Cuttlebug die, distressed the raised portions with ink and popped it up onto dimensionals. The sky and grass were colored in with Copics. I added a wooden button from PTI and some wide grosgrain ribbon.
You still have until tomorrow to upload one of your creations for the challenge. You can't win if you don't enter!! A $50 gift certificate to CHF is worth the effort.
I usually share most of our family blah blah on our family blog but I wanted to share one of the highlights of our week at camp. On Thursday night they had a baptismal service at the lake (yes, that would be cold, rough, Lake Ontario). There were 23 people in all that got baptized, young and old. They asked DH and our good friend Mike, to baptize several of the children. Mike and Greg grew up together and Mike is now the youth pastor at our old church. Who would have thought all those years ago that the two of them would end up in ministry AND have the privilege of doing baptisms together? It is so cool to see how God weaves our lives!! This photo really says it all...
Thanks for visiting!! Definitely look for more from me this week. I am ready to stamp, stamp, stamp!
