Ah, it feels so good to be back home and posting a card. {grin} We had a rushed last week of school and left for the airport right after the boys were dismissed from their last day on the 18th. Our flights were all crazy with delays and storms, but we made it to Missouri at 2:00 in the morning. We then spent a week at a fabulous family camp called Kamp Kaua'i run by Kanakuk Ministries. It's really more like spending a week at a resort than any kind of camp I've ever been too, but it's the people who run it that make it such a great experience. They are just so warm and friendly and eager to serve the families that come. The one sad thing is my camera died at the beginning of the week, so I have few photos from our vacation this year. But my head and heart are full of images and warm memories! And we got a new camera this weekend after we returned home, so I'm back in business now.

Anyhow, the stamp on this card is called
Looking at You and it's by Stampavie. I just fell in love with this little girl watching a butterfly that has landed on her shoe. It so reminds me of my lazy summers when I was a girl (years ago, haha). I paper pieced her clothes and colored her skin and hair with a blender pen. She's also covered with sparkly spica pens. I wish that shimmer would show in photos.

I used the largest Labels Eleven nestie to frame her and a smaller one to make a template for sponging clouds. Those round bumps at the end are perfect for that! The sentiment is from
Paper Makeup Stamps in their Celestial Possibilities kit. I love how the saying captures the ideas of imagination and dreams as she gazes at that butterfly.

What a great idea for the nestie to use it for a cloud template. I need to quit looking at your blog, it seems to keep costing me money as I always NEED something else afterwards!

wow, I totally would not have thought to use the Labels 11 as a cloud template... you are so good at finding things like this, lol!!
