I extremely enjoyed my time away with my beautiful family. With my hubby gone for months at a time, and my kids growing up fast, the chances we get to be together are sparse and I savor every minute I get to spend with them. Please leave a comment and tell me how you like the card and what Summer getaways you've enjoyed with your loved ones this year! I'd love to hear from you and make new friends in the stamping world. Enjoy!!

Hello Stampers! I'm finally home and ready to start creating cards again. It took me a minute to get back in my element and create today. I finally settled on using one of my favorite companies again to get me back in the swing of things. This Lawn Fawn card was created using mostly the stamp set "Critters on the Savanna". Since I was young I have always had a thing for Zebras. Their colors intrigue me. I love how beautifully and consistent their black and white stripes are. Love them!! So I created a birthday card using the Zebra as my focal point. I water colored him using "Derwent Inktense Pencils" and placed him in a meadow of grass that was die cut from "Savvy Stamps Long Grass Die". I also stamped the tree from the same set as the zebra and colored it with copic markers. I placed a little bird on the tree and added an adorable birthday hat on his head. The sky was made with "Tim Holtz Distress Inks" in "Stormy Sky"and "Tumbled Glass".....and last but not least, the sentiment was stamped in "Soft Granite Shadow Ink" and is from the Lawn Fawn set "Year Two."
