Well, Monday's seem to be my day to post. I had a very productive weekend, just not in my stamp studio. Hubby and the boys returned from Scout camp on Saturday afternoon. The mood was right for some house cleaning so from 6am-2pm I puttered, cleaned and weeded out. Everything from floors to windows got done, I tell you the house was sparkling. For all of 30 minutes!! At 2:30 the campers came in with all their dirty, smelly gear and made themselves at home once again. Oh well. It was good to have them back again.
Our youngest was home not even a full 24 hours before we repacked his gear and sent him off to church camp for a week. As tired as he was, he was also very excited to go spend the week with old friends from Rochester. Someone in our church sponsored his trip this year so we definitely needed a card to send as a thanks. I used the opportunity to use a new Nellie Snellen stamp I got from the stamp store recently.
I used some older SU items, Ahoy, Matey and the matching jumbo wheel to accent the pirate image from Nellie. The chocolate chip layer was embossed with a weathered stripe folder from Cuttlebug, the name escapes me but it is an older one. I rubbed some CC ink over it to further accent the embossing. Dark brown is so hard to capture on the camera though. His cap got a little lift from dimensionals.
