Hi all,

Welcome back! I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of summer.

For today’s card I wanted to try using an alphabet stamp set to create my sentiment. I’m one that almost always chooses to use a sentiment that’s ready to go. I don’t mess around with my stamps by splitting them apart, I like things already assembled and ready to go for me. So as you may guess, this card in particular took quite some time to conceptualize. However, once I had an idea of what I wanted, it came together pretty quickly. I knew I wanted to use the scooter element in a whimsical way, and the rest of the card just fell into place immediately after I had the element figured out.

Here’s the how-to on the card:

Here’s a look at the finished card.
