Happy Fourth of July!
Atreyu Zion!

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden from Martha!

Hey there! We are still waiting on Alisa's baby to make his appearance! I know a lot of girls these days allow themselves to be induced as soon as the doctor will schedule it, but Alisa has always had a different approach. She believes it is better for her and her baby to wait until the baby is ready to come. Now, granted, she has always had uncomplicated deliveries. I was unable to be present for her last two, Cyndal was born the morning Mark & I got off the boat from a Stampin' Up! Alaska cruise, and Avara was born during Covid lockdown. If all goes as planned I will be able to be present for Atreyu's birth. I was in the room for Oakley, Lando, and Ivory's births, and each one was so special. Alisa's doctor has stated that all babies are born by 42 weeks and 6 days and yesterday was 42 weeks, so come on Atreyu!

Note: This post may be my last for a couple of weeks, or my posts may be sporadic during that time. I will be busy helping with Alisa's older 5, as well as cooking and laundry. I will be sleeping at her house on the couch, and her internet is not good as she currently lives out in the "boonies" in a metal-sided and roofed house. So please don't give up on checking my blog!

The card I'm sharing today is one I received from a member of my team, Martha Swift. Martha is sweet lady and an exceptionally classy stamper. She used the Dragon Fly Garden stamp set and Dragonfly Punch for her creation:


Martha created a frame by cutting designer series paper with a Stitched Rectangle Die, adhered a window sheet to the back of the paper, then mounted it on the card front with the white stamped layer underneath, with Foam Adhesive Strips. She used Rich Razzleberry and Mint Macaron Stampin' Write Markers on the flower image to get both colors with one stamping. She also stamped and punched the Dragonfly with the Dragonflies Punch to mount on the stamped white layer with dimensionals.


The greeting, also stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink, is also from the Dragonfly Garden set.
