Furs Class Father

Furs Class

My dad is the greatest, so he is most deserving of this "Furs Class" card I made for him (along with the new set of luggage I bought him).

I actually saw a very cute stamp at Michael's last week that was a small postage stamp with a rabbit and the sentiment said "Furs Class", so I'm confessing here...I'm not original, but I thought to myself, "I can make something like that", and I must admit, I like my version better.

I'm playing around with my rabbit stamps right now for my very first swap that I signed up for. Who knows, this might end up being *the* card I submit. We'll see. I also signed up for an Alaska ATC swap too. I'm kinda psyched about participating in them.

I found a stamping artist over on Splitcoast Stampers. She's just amazingly talented, and she has my style. Here's the link to her blog . You know how I fret over not being able to do layouts? Well studying her cards is telling me that I can be simple and let the image be the focal point of the card. Afterall, I buy stamps because I like the image in the first place. I also admire how she incorporates her own doodling on her cards. And the framing of images...yes! Cute is okay (I'm still a kid at heart). Seems like cute is not "in" in the stamping world and that it is all about collage and vintage stuff. Just not me.

Here's wishing you all a great week.
