Mixing it up a bit

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:11 AM
I went to Big Lots! the other day to look for school supplies for my step-daughter and lookie what I found! If you have ever been to big lots with me you will know I have a routine. I walk in the door and head straight for the scrapbooking aisle. It doesn't matter if im there for school supplies. I just have to look! So the other day I went in there and made my usual beeline for the aisle. I stopped , I gasped! They had restocked!!!! There was tons of new stamps and paper. I got 3 wooden stamps for me and a clear set for for Jammie . I then was walking away when I saw boxed sets of stamps. Right on top was this horse set. It had 10 stamps and an ink pad. The horse wasnt originally silouette but with a sharpie marker any stamp can be . I grabbed the set and the rest of my stuff and went for the school supplies I was supposed to be getting ( which wasn't nearly as fun).
When I got home I decided to make this card for a customer. Her friend loves horses and she wanted a birthday card for him. I brayered not quite navy on white cardstock to get the sky. I then stamped my nature silhouettes with black ink. Stamped the horse and colored him in with sharpie and VOILA! Your probably not even readign the rest of this post. You probably dropped everything to go to big lots to look at stamps huh?

Very great card. Would take time to say more about it, but I'm in a hurry to get to Big Lots.
