{ My Etsy, Impression Obsession New Stamps - CHA sneak peek, Project 365 - week 29 }

I made my fist sale last week!!! I was so excited! One big thank you goes out to my sweet customer in Somerville! My store (right side bar) is still new and I will add more stuff as time goes by. If there is anything that you see and want, and it's not in the store, let me know.

I was frantically working late into the night on some cards that needed to go out ASAP. The cards are on their way to CHA, now, but I packed them up and shipped them. After they were gone I remembered that I didn't take photos of the last three cards. I was so bummed. Thanks to my friends at Impression Obsession I am able to show them, well, one for now. I stamped Tall Trees (F2343) on patterned paper and cut them out. The background is stamped with our NEW Cover-a-Card™ stamp, Tapestry (CC025). There are 26 backgrounds to choose from. The Clingable™ stamp measures 5.75" x 5.75". It covers an entire A2 card, horizontally and vertically. I used VersaMark and Iridescent embossing powder for the background. The sentiment is from Christmas Sentiments set (CL44).

The new stamps will be available August 1.

Project 365 - week 29.

7.13 - here is Alex after his bath, playing with flash cards. He recognizes most of the "first words" cards. When you ask him he will point to the right card. 7.14 - this was day #7 with temperature over 100. Most of this week was spent indoors. We did go out to splash in the water, but only around 7pm. 7.15 - funny thing, as I look at these photos...Alex spends most of his time in pajamas around the house! He found my wallet and was ready to shop for some clothes, other than pajamas.7.16 - getting ready to go to the doctor, daddy was not feeling well. Alex wants to brush his (2) teeth with a big toothbrush. He does have 4 teeth now, others coming in any day. 7.17 - mommy loves to buy fun things, like this bubble machine, but they don't always work as promised. 7.18 - Dinner with the boys after a stamp show (without the boys). I thought this one was cute of Alex walking to the car after dinner.7.19 - Alex taking a little break.

I hope you are having a great Wednesday! I will be able to share some fun stuff soon. Here is a little peek.
