A few weeks ago, I was subbing at my daughter's school, in a grade 3/4 classroom.
I had a bit of time to go to the library to look for some books to read to the class and I found this one:
It was really cute, with wonderful illustrations.
After I was done reading it to the class, I couldn't help but look at it again.
This was after I had ordered my City Scene stamp set from PTI,
but I hadn't received it in the mail yet.
I loved how the buildings were stamped tone on tone in the background on the cover and
thought that this would be fun to replicate in a card.
So, when my City Scene stamp set arrived, I gave it a try...
I stamped the buildings on Harvest Gold cardstock in Harvest Gold ink.
The I stamped the second layer with Summer Sunrise.
For the "character" on the front, I decided to stamp & paper-piece Simon from
Simon Says Stamps' Stylish Simon stamp set.
I gave him a pink hoodie, as I was making it for one of my Sunday School students, and she likes pink.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Type It.
Thanks for looking!
