Fling wide the portals

1105 Debra Burgin The earth laughsI’ve been wanting to write that post title for … weeks!  Heck, I’ve wanted to do it for weeks!  We’ve had the slowest, coldest, wettest spring.  That is, when it hasn’t been hot and humid.

Meanwhile, we had a beautiful day when the sun came out this afternoon.  I slathered the baby with sunscreen and out we went.  There’s nothing like a baby to get strangers to talk to you, unless it’s a dog or a netbook.  It’s the Cuteness Quotient, of course.

Today’s playtime (as well as a busy work week) wore me out.  I think before Peter’s mom pulled out of our driveway, I was already horizontal.  Nothing like a refreshing nap on the porch.

This card uses one of my go-to layouts and a favorite stamping technique — you’ve seen it here before!  The measurements are easy and economical.  The stamped panel is 2¾” x 4¼” — cut the 11″ side in four and the 8½” side in two.  The Cajun Craze piece is not actually a mat, it’s a scrap that’s punched and the remainder is used on the opposite side.

Isn’t that a cute trick with the new Postage Stamp Punch?

    It took me a moment to find it, but yes, it is a very clever way to use the postage stamp punch!
