STAMPIN’ AT THE LIBRARY – AUGUST 20, 2009

August 20, 2009

Today is our day to stamp at the Mi Wuk Community Center & Lending Library.  Our usual crowd is somewhere between 8 and 16 people and that's not bad for a small community and a building the size of a 4 car garage.  We do love this monthly opportunity!!!

Today's card are based on cards I received as swaps at Stampin' Up!'s convention earlier this month.

The original card, by Angie Brailsford, was simply the texturized Top Note die cut.  I added the card base itself and the ribbon and changed the greeting.  I love the colors and the whimsiness of it.
