It has been raining for two days. It would have been a perfect time to create cards, but I had a better surprise. Miss Victoria has been with me for two days. There has been a bad stomach virus in her school, so guess who got it?!? Now, I am praying it doesn't pass through my house, too. She is 20 months of joy! I am one happy Grammy to spend time with her. She is such a cuddle bug, and she fills my heart with joy!
During nap times, I have crept out and made two cards. I had to do them in stages, so hopefully, I can get them posted before the Princess wakes up.
The Pals Paper Arts Colors Challenge intrigued me this week. I do not usually use these colors, but really loved how they looked together. I bought the new Photopolymer Stampin' Up! Ikat stamp set. I LOVE it!!!!! I am such a fan of Native American items and decor. I played around with it and came up with a pattern that I liked using Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder and Smokey Slate.

I made a border on my envelope and inside the card. I think this is the perfect card for a guy. Think of all the possibilities with the stamp set patterns and colors. I am certain you will see more cards with this stamp set in the future.
