Week 2: Summer Card Camp 2011
It has been far too long and I have missed writing to you during my period of inactivity. Today I have a card for you that I made for an online class I am participating in: Summer Card Camp with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner. Like my blog writing, I am truant with Week 1's card assignment. Despite that I am going to forge ahead with Week 2. I am a bit overwhelmed with the talent and copious amounts of cards in the student gallery. I always find myself hesitant to participate when I feel myself at a severe disadvantage, but I am trying to be less of a wimp. I am using my friend, Julie, as an inspiration to post. Check out her cards (3 of them which makes her an overachiever in my book) on her blog--awesome!
I recently bought some Lawn Fawn stamps that I had been ogling for a while. Lawn Fawn have impossibly adorable images that were calling to me to play with especially after watching countless charming videos by sunny and bright Kelly Marie Alvarez. My card doesn't do the stamps justice...I simply adore the Ferris wheel and ticket especially when you fill it in with one of the phrases designed to fit perfectly in it. For better examples go to Kelly Marie Alvarez's blog.
So here's my card without further ado:
