a splitcoast shoebox swap in pa

This card was created for a Splitcoast Summer Bash shoebox swap that will be held next month not too far from my house. I expect the drive to be about an hour. I can't wait to meet these wonderful SCS ladies!! Especially Tracy Tripp. Tracy was my big DDSS over at Splitcoast a few rounds back and she is the just sweetest thing ever! She spoiled me big time!
This card was cased from PTI Nichole Heady's Blog. I knew I wanted to use this set to do a shirt like the one she did. So when I went back to her shirt post, I also cased the card under it a tad... thanks Nichole!
Speaking of Nichole's shirt idea... I couldn't wait for my new sets to arrive. So Abby got a few cute new t-shirts made out of her old winter undershirts. Way to recycle. That a few less summer shirts I have to buy her, and she really loves that I took the time to make her something, It really amazes me how excited my little ones are to receive a hand stamped ... anything... from me! Abby's shirt will get posted soon!
