Lazy Summer Day Stamping

to sailawy 2 (2)
August has been DELIGHFUL for us here at the Weckesser Homestead!
We have spent some time camping, relaxing, and just playing in the garden. It has been fun after a super busy year just to take a little time and play together as a family.
That doesn't mean that I haven't had my {CRAFTING} moments!20120821_157 While I was enjoying some quiet moments in Waterton, Alberta, I created a card using some chalkboard paper from Canvas Corp. I used some of Heidi Swapp's COLOR SHINE. Love it! It is a new product and the color is FAB!
Then I used one of my new co-branded Unity Stamps ~ Sail Away . I used some UTEE on the image.
