{SSSC} You Rock!

Hey there!! It's good to be back to old blog-o-sphere after a bit of a break! I have not stamped or blogged in about 3 weeks, although it may have seemed like less to you, since I had a ton of stuff pre-posted. But I've been on hiatus for good reason! We went on a little family vacay for 2 weeks. We took the boys to visit family on Vancouver Island, stayed on a gorgeous lake with our boat and had some major fun on the water and at the beach, and went down into Washington and Idaho for some back to school shopping! The above picture of the boys was taken in Jasper, Alberta at the summit of a REALLY big mountain! The boys were conquerers ;)

(our middle son, Jake-8)
We had tons of fun and it's always sad to end the summer holidays and get back to the swing of things with the start of school and changing of the seasons :( My baby started Kindergarten this year, so for TWO FULL DAYS a week, this mama is alone and lonely :( But I'm sure I'll get used to it and with time, grow to enjoy those days of freedom ;) Or so they say! I don't believe it just yet!

Now onto some crafting!!

I've used a Paper Smooches stamp set for this card. It's called Knick Knacks and I purchased it from i {heart} papers. I used an older Crate Paper pad (I think it is called Toy Box) and added some enamel and wood dots.

Here's a close-up of the rocking horse- my E25 is a little 'gummy' so the mane and tail aren't great….what can ya do?

Here is the sketch I followed:

    Your boys are adorable! So glad your family had a nice trip before school started up.
    Your card is fantastic! Love the cute rocking horse and your color choices.
