Wednesday Stamper & Summer Fun

Gosh, I love summer! The freedom to do art all day, run off to the store for a slurpie if I want or just laze around and watch the squirrels eat up my bird food. Occasionally doing some dishes & laundry or playing Slingo, and its a perfect summer!

This week's
Wednesday Stamper challenge was 'Flowers'. You know I'm all over that! I love flowers. 6x6" caCollage says, "Flowers may beckon toward us, but they speak toward heaven and God. - Henry Ward Beecher". (Stamps used: SeeD's clock, MaVinci's latin? Can't remember what language.)

It seems summertime has afforded me more freedom in my creativity. Or maybe my brain just works better, now that its not stuffed full of homeschool thoughts. I've made a few mini books for a swap out of smaller bingo cards (3X4"), filled with sketch paper, vellum and ledger pages.



I also played around with a matboard collage (about 7 x 9 1/2").

Youngest DD runs off to camp this week for the first time. I'm a little worried, as mothers always do, but DH is going to camp as well. She'll see him at meals and game times so I won't worry and I'll pray that its a rewarding trip for her.

Edited to add: Another piece of artwork for Wednesday Stamper just completed (stamps used: flower: Making Memories, Script: Stampin Up French Script). Maybe my DDs will say this someday...

Probably the last piece for a couple days. DD and I have movies to watch, homeschool used book sale to sell at, bowling, art to do with friends and maybe a Borders visit in our weekend plans.

Beautiful work Kris! Just makes me smile1 :-) (like that!)

Hope your DD and DH are having a great time! My daughter went to a three day "outdoor school" when she was in middle school. My husband and I worried and she had the time of her life and came back full of stories! It was a good experience for all of us! Hope yours is the same. :-)
