I am finally back after my many travels in July. I think I was in the airport more than I was home for the month. The first of the month, I traveled to Washington state to see my family and celebrate my Mom's 75th birthday. As always we have so much fun with the family and laugh a lot. I was home for a week then off to the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt lake City. I had a fabulous time and can't tell you how excited I am about all the new products and information I learned. Upon my return, I had two days to get ready for a 10 day trip to Spain. Then it was off to Madrid followed by the Basque Country. I think our motto for the trip should be " We drove, We saw, We ate."
Anywhoo, it is so good to be back home - m m must s s st st stamp! and what a perfect way to start stamping again than with the PPA challenge. This week is a double challenge a masculine KISS ( keep it simple sweetie). When I first went through the new Idea Book and Catalog, I nearly missed the Engraved Greetings stamp set ( it is in the Simply Sent section), but once I saw it, I had to have these sentiments for my masculine cards. To keep it simple I used a straight forward layout with a few of my new favorite colors Marina Mist, Peach Parfait and Early Espresso.

Paper - early espresso, marina mist, peach parfait, whisper white card stock
