Floral story

I have a new favorite stamp! I love this Floral Story from Penny Black! When I was younger my Mom would grow Amaryllis inside and have them blooming for the holidays. I have tried several times and just can't seem to get mine to grow well inside. I stamped the image in black ink and colored with copics, R24,27 &29, and YG25, 23 & 21. I tore the image and inked the edges with walnut stain, the PP is from PTI which I also inked with walnut stain. Any big plans for the Holiday? We probably grill some food outside and hopefully get to the pool. Owen was invited to his first official "playdate" (it's probably already not cool to call it that not at the age of 8). He is so excited, it would be nice for him to have some friends to spend time with. We live out in the country and all girls live around us. He doesn' t mind hanging with them, but they aren't into fishing, playing swamp loggers or talking about go karts. Hope everyone has a fun, safe Holiday.
