welcome to my blog! i grew up in a warm, loving
family filled with laughter and happiness.
i am lucky and i appreciated it. my parents were always trying to
fill our days with fun times on a tight budget. we had a wood stove in our
home, and i thought EVERYONE had one. nope.
on our stove was a big black cast iron tea pot that put steam into the
room so the air wasn't dry.
i recently came across these delightful stamps from a place
called whimsiedoodles.
there among the digital stamps was this adorable image
with my parents cast iron pot... and all the wonderful
happy memories came flooding back.
these stamps are precious and fun, and i wanted to share the card i created.
i used the stamps from Whimsiedoodles, colored with my prisma pencils and
gamsol, the little beads on the gingerbread are pearl stickers from the Recollection
collection at Michaels Stores. (cute huh?)
i outlined the white with my uniball pen. the papers are from the Nursery Collection
from KC &CO. that ribbon is from my local scrapbooking store, great ribbons!
the border is from a fiskars punch. I mimicked the cross stitches in the top two corners with thread and a piercing pattern and tool. 
thanks for strolling with me down memory lane...

i love this little stamp, and i am glad that the world of digital is there.
