Thank You Teacher!

Hi Peeps!

I'm back in Washington and gradually getting settled into my routine here.  We had a wonderful family Easter (minus our youngest daughter, Amy - missed you, Ames!) and I was lucky enough to be invited to one of my oldest daughter's baby showers last night.  Super fun and so many adorable baby gifts.  Can't wait for that sweet baby boy to be born already!!

It's Tuesday, and time for another ABC Toys & Crafts share.  I made this for an upcoming CARDS Magazine submission, and used two of my favorite Hero Arts clear stamp sets - Scalloped Borders and Essential Messages.  Both of these sets are so incredibly versatile that I find myself grabbing them on a very regular basis.  No stamp collection should be without them, in my humble opinion.  To create the apples, I used a Martha Stewart apple punch (it seems that ABC Toys is out of this particular punch, but if you're interested in buying it, you could send Julie an email - abctoysandcrafts@comcast.net - and she might be able to order it in for you.)

STAMPS:  Scalloped Borders (Hero Arts), Essential Messages (Hero Arts)
INK:  Enchanted Evening (PTI), Versamark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Kraft CS (PTI), Enchanted Evening CS (PTI), Sour Apple CS (Poptone), Bitty Dots DP (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Pure Poppy Saddle Stitch Ribbon (PTI), White Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), 3D Dots (EK Success), Apple Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts)

That's it for me today.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs!
