1st Pink by Design Stamps!!

Well I FINALLY ordered my first set of Pink by Design  stamps!! I got them over the weekend but of course didn't have the time to even open the package!! UGH!! So yesterday I broke them out & inked them up! I really like the quality of these stamps & there are SO many sets over there!! Definitely will be shopping there more! :)

So here is the first card I made with the Flying High set....which happens to be on sale right now! When I first saw this set I instantly thought of my Grandpa!! When I was in elementary school, my Grandpa worked at Kelly AFB as a Project Manager. One of the things he did every year was design the float for the Fiesta Parades here in town. The float would also "make appearances" in all the little towns around us for any parade they might have. Anyway, one year he made a replica of an old airplane & had it sitting on "clouds" (see pic below, the clouds were made of that spray foam, which back then was WOW amazing! It was so exciting to see them forming those clouds!!) looked like the plane was flying down the street! To me, it was THE coolest thing EVER!! AND I got to ride in the plane as the pilot!! In every parade I was up there, waving to everyone down on the streets! I even had a costume (which I still have!) of fight gear! Goggles, hat, flight jacket & boots! They said I looked just like Amelia Earhart! :) Here is a pic I found recently with me & the Queen of Kelly AFB!! I was 9 or 10 yrs old at the time! I looked all over in my stuff for a pic of my plane...but I guess I don't have one! :( Will need to ask Mom for one!
My Grandpa has always had a love of planes & even owned a couple many years ago!
So this plane stamp reminds me of him every time I see it!
 I (again!!) used the DCWV Safari stack...this stack is so versatile!! I never would have thought it had so much in it!! A very simple card...stamped the image, matted it, added some twine to the back mat & popped up the main image! Done!!

Come on back tomorrow for another Would You Guess Wednesday over at My Cricut Craft Room! I have a post as part of the Design Team for tomorrow, you WON'T want to miss it!! :)

Until next time....
