One stamp two ways...

I have a couple minutes this morning before life gets rolling - thought I'd share these cards I made with smARTworks' Wonder set. (click on the set name to see the full set and other cards made using these stamps!)

I've been feeling a little mix-and-matchy with my patterned paper...I wonder why that is - if it's representative of mixed emotions or what. There we go, a psychology of card-making...someone is going to make millions on that one!

First card the flower (what is it? dandelion? agapanthus?) is stamped in Amber Clay chalk ink. The saying is from TAC, I think...got it in a grab bag on Ebay. Not really much more to explain there...the saying panel is popped up on foam tape.

Card #2 - I stamped the flower on white card stock and embossed it in white, then rubbed a chalk inkpad (Pastel Pink?) over the panel to fill in the color. The saying panel on this one is made with a keyhole punch I picked up on clearance in FL - it's a big sharp heavy yellow monster. Scary.

Still waiting to hear about my friend's sister...she called last night and said things were not good - the sister's breathing sounded like someone who had drowned (not sure what that means...?) and my friend had been called to the hospital. Hopefully there will be news soon - they are praying for a miracle...

The returning students start work detail today, cleaning up the campus after the summer. My job is to feed them when they take a break! Nice, huh? I think I'll try out a new donut recipe. I've decided my love language is feeding people...but for some reason that's not one of the choices...?!
