Post Script Smiles

Happy Friday, y'all!  And it IS a happy morning, the hubs forgot we had muffins in the fridge so guess who gets to eat them now ;)

And today's card uses the OTHER new stamp that I got this week!

I love the Post Script background.  Actually SU! came out with several fantastic new background stamps that will sooner or later make their way to Snapdragonland.  Anyway, I thought the postmarks would be cute for a "miss you" type of card.  I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

Take a moment to laugh with me:  part of the reason why I've been doing watercolor washes so much lately is because I didn't have any current Designer Series Paper yet.  So I get my order with all the shiny new DSP, and the first piece I choose to use?  It's a watercolor wash.  Heh.  I almost didn't want to cut into it because I LOVE the other side of this piece too (it's jewels!) but then I reminded myself I could buy another pack on down the line if I need to.  Which I probably will.  I also picked the color combo straight from the DSP--Emerald Envy, Night of Navy, and Berry Burst.  I need to play with the new In Colors more.

Well, as soon as I finish breakfast I'm going to try reading a bit to Ryan.  We're working our way through The Son of Neptune right now and yes, I know my kid isn't even four months old yet but is it ever really too soon to introduce kids to good books?  Besides, I need to practice so I can do voices and stuff by the time he's old enough to understand what I'm reading to him anyway.  So cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
