Restful Robin

I received the most wonderful package in the mail from Kris on Friday. In my msn art group we do a secret summer sister swap and Kris had my name again. She also had it for Xmas this past year. lol. She is always so generous and thoughtful. Her artwork is beautiful.

The patterned paper is the Twiggy line from Memory Box. I can't say enough good things about this paper. It's thick and very pretty. The bird stamp is also Memory Box. I've been wanting this stamp since I laid eyes on it. It's actually one stamp but the bird and the nest are on separate ends of the wood block. The swirls are from Inque Boutique. Never had any of their stamps before and I'm likin' them a lot. I may add a sentiment later.

I'm no restful robin this week. Taylor starts preschool next Wednesday and I don't think I've ever been this nervous about anything in my life. Wish us luck. It'll be a transition for both of us!

RubberStampMadness Sep/Oct 08

Made it into the latest edition of RubberStampMadness. Almost all stamps are Character Constructions. There are some really fun Halloween cards in this issue.
I am considering deleting all the posts pertaining to our private life. Taylor will start preschool soon and I'd just like to make a fresh start. I know we will have our issues but I'd like this chapter to begin with all this other stuff behind us.
Summer has been very busy---trips to zoo, horseback riding, picnics, etc. Hopefully when the winter months roll around I'll have time to post more and more creations to share!
Have a nice day.
