Stamping is art :)

Card details: SU CS, Basic Grey Euphoria DP, Inkadinkadoo stmp, Stamping Bella EmBELLAshments donuts and dots colored with Copics

I forgot to share this! This card follows the CPS #100 sketch like the CAS card I posted last week or so, but with a little bit looser twist to the sketch layout. I love this quote! {Thanks, Rox for loaning me the stamp...I will give it back! LOL!}

I made this card to give to a teacher I work with who is really a kindred spirit...and she also happens to be my classroom neighbor and the elementary art teacher!! She has this great easel outside of her room and she often puts a famous work of art out so that we can enjoy great masterpieces as we walk up the hall. We have what I call a mutual fan club....she likes my quotes and I love her artwork. It's a good deal all around.

Who is a kindred spirit in your life?

PS We have pouring rain and almost 60 today...nice change, but the flooding is not good and tonight winds are coming (45-60 mph) and the temp will be dropping into the teens for tomorrow...brrrr.....winter is back!! Boo hoo! Back to the UK with you, I say!! ;)

EDITED TO ADD: We ended up having a snow day {no school! no school!} today! (Thursday)...actually...more of a super-windy, slushy rain day! LOL! As my friend and fellow educator, Ann said...it's a gift!! :) No excuses for me not to make a new card, right?! ;) ~K

  7. Hello Kim Marie!
    Thank you so much for the wonderful post/comment on my blog.

    You have a fantastic blog! You are a much better writer than I am. I am not a fan of writing. I was given the gift of gab. LOL
    I love your cards!
    I would really love to know where you got the "make a wish" stamp? I used to be involved with the Children's Wish Foundation. (A very worthy cause!)
    That stamp reminds me of their Logo.

    Hugs & Cheers,


  8. I love peeps who talk of kindred spirits...I was/am a huge Ann Shirley fan and think of those books quite often as it happens...and I love to find kindred spirits...they are far and few between but it is OH SO GOOD to find a new one!! I think of our sbs9 sisterhood as being one of kindred spirits - don't you?


Please leave comments for me! I love to hear from you! Have a blessed day!! :)
