FWF-Joy...

Happy Friday! A couple of weeks ago I was a FWF winner and got a big ol' bag of random Unity stamps! It was super fun to go through them all. I pulled out these two stamps and decided to create. I stamped the kite image onto water color paper. I haven't watercolored in a long time, so it was fun to revisit. I kept my card super simple.  I think this card would be perfect for several different occasions: birthdays, new baby, graduation...

My boys are just dying to go camping. We have had some great weather here in Ohio, but the last couple of weekends have been rainy.  Unfortunately, we are supposed to get some severe weather today and this evening, so bummer!!! Even though it would be a lot of work for just one day, I would love to go just for Saturday if the weather is good.  We store the camper in my parent's big garage, so the other day they wanted to go in and just sit inside of it. So cute!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

So cute that they are THAT excited to go camping! I Love your card...you make simple look amazing.

We're going to get your weather 2maro too, but it doesn't sound as severe! So it's inside for us (which will make for an interesting weekend given the energy of my pooches)
