Here's one of the designs that I created for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club, when I was serving my time as a Dirty Girl...I named it "Little House on the Prairie." This design was created to fit the sketch challenge for March, 2009.
I've loved the Laura Ingalls Wilder series since I was a young girl. Even now, the books bring back fond memories from my early days of reading.
My husband and I recently visited DeSmet, South Dakota, where four of the Little House Books were written, beginning with "On the Shores of Silver Lake." We visited two of the places that the Ingalls family had lived, and also stopped at the homestead of Laura and Almanzo. What a fun trip! While there, I purchased the entire set of hard cover books for the "library" that I'm building for my future grandchildren.
Onto the card: the designer paper used here was Stampin' Up's retired Sweet Slumber and Parisian Breeze Specialty papers; NO ink (gasp!), and Foof-a-La buttons threaded with embroidery floss and narrow May Arts silk ribbon (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store).
If you have not read the "Little House on the Prairie" books, be certain to pick them up from your library...they are so very special...even for adults!!!
