Stamp class: Super hero

Yesterday was my ctmh stamp class. I have been playing with ideas for the class for about a month and finalized them Monday night. I wanted something that could be used for father's day but at the same time that could be used for any man in the person making it's life or if not for father's day for a birthday or maybe even to be used to say thank you. So I cut "hero" on the cricut using art philosophy (which I mutilated on my gypsy to fit perfectly on the card) the I stamped the cityscape on the letters inked the edges in black and glued them over the patterned papers. I then stamped the super hero from the super powers stamp set in black and colored him in with markers. I popped him up with foam dots. A fairly simple card but it has a lot of pop. This was a paper pack I would have never purchased before the birth of my nephew. As soon as I saw it in my catalog I knew I would purchase it.
The third project was an altered peanut container I just though it was something fun a different and it could cute as part of a gift basket or a simple gift on its own.
I wish I took pictures of the ladies creations I always find it interesting because I give them the time to be creative or to do something on their own. They always surprise me. One of the girls made the card for her boyfriend in boot camp she gave the superhero cameo pants and used the speech bubble stamp and write "some superheros wear capes mine wears combat boots". It makes me smile knowing that she will be sending her man something cute and personal to boost his spirits.

So excited

Well on top of celebrating my little brother's wedding this weekend I got amazing news myself! I got into graduate school!!!!!! I'm looking forward to the challenge, but a little sad that crafting will take a back seat for awhile because studying will be far more important. I of course will make time for it here and there because balance is important. I'm just so excited to be continuing my education! I have a few months before it begins but I can't contain my excitement! I'll be sharing a few photos soon from the wedding! I had so much fun. I danced the night away with my family! It was a lot of smiles and laughs. I'm proud of my little brother and I wish him and his beautiful wife happiness in their new chapter!
