Thinking of you @AveryElleStamps

It's SPRING BREAK! I am super excited to have the week off from most carpool things...and a few nights of late night movie watching are in order, and I believe a girls day at the market as well since both my husband and son are off on their own adventures this week! 

I had a free moment to play along with Avery Elles AEI♥U challenge this time, but it was a stretch for me! 

I wanted to emulate the water background, so I inked up one of the backgrounds from All Squared Up using varying shades of VersaMagic inks from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko- Oasis Green, Sea Breeze, & Aspen Mist.  I stamped them repeatedly across the card and changed up where I inked each color each time.   To emulate the dock, I used an M-Bossabilities wood grain folder on my card stock after stamping the sentiment, and finished it off with a twine bow.

and we are off to day one of break- softball practice, then Easter dinner shopping, and some egg dyeing is on the agenda for today!

enjoy!! Pin It Now!
