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?
