Bunches of Thanks

Happy Tuesday :). I still haven't made any new cards I can show you, but here are a couple I made with the Hero Arts clear set called Bunches of Thanks a couple of weeks ago. Dawn, don't fall off your chair, but I'm getting ready to say something nice about clear stamps... Are you ready?? I love that I can maneuver the clear stamp so that it perfect fits this curve. See the "thinking of you" there? I set the clear block over the area and slightly bent the stamp so that it fit this curve and then I was able to perfectly position the saying before stamping it.
I used black dye ink and water color pencils to color these images and the Coluzzle to cut the ovals.

On a Personal Note:
The younger three are in school now (still hard to believe), but I'm still running the older two around (dentist appointments, shopping etc...) Jillana starts school in a little over a week and Jannelle is still working a lot at the mall. Her move in date quickly approaches. I'll be more predictable again in a few weeks. In the meantime, I'll be home tomorrow, so maybe I'll make a new card. (oh snap, I think I just jinxed myself again)
Have a blessed day!! Jacki

Old, new, who cares...it's adorable. Gosh you must be dizzy thinking about your gals going off from home.I found that a really hard time when Julie went off to MSU. You'll get through it even though it is tough. Keep happy. Pat
Now I'm fitting the jitters over the contest and hoping Julie wins.
