This is the dry erase board I made using a wide picture frame I got for a bargain when my AC Moore store closed.  I painted the edges black and covered the front with kraft paper using Mod Podge to glue it down ONLY...never put Mod Podge over kraft paper, I did and that is why this is the second one of these I've made.  It caused the paper to bubble like crazy!  I used four sets of stamps from The Stamps of Life.  I'm a club member and just love Stephanie Bernard's stamps.  The sets I used are, banners4all, list2write, mums2stamp and butterfly2build.  I covered a small piece of kraft paper with contact paper and made a loop that I thumb tacked to the back so that it hung over the bottom edge and made a place for the dry erase marker.

 So here's today's far.  I used my new doodle2stamp set from The Stamps of Life.  I think this is my new "favorite" at the moment.

 Here's a cute card I recently sent to my mother, just to say hello.  I used my Watercan Marci stamp from La-La Land Crafts (one of my new favorite stamp companies).  I paper pieced her dress and visor and colored the rest of her with my copic markers.  I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Nine dies to cut the window. 
The happy summer, ants and watermelon stamps used on the inside are from lawn fawn and I purchased them from Ginger Snap Scraps, she has a lot of great sales, usually with 30% off.
Another card I almost forgot about!  I made this as a Father's Day card for my husband who LOVES pretzels.  I used my Cricut Decals cart that comes on the E2 so this card came together pretty quickly.  The #1 was stamped on a blank wood domino (for lack of a better word for it) that I got from Michaels.  It has two holes going through it so I was able to thread it on some baker's twine.  The banner on the bottom is from paper tape.
Wow, here's a card I made for my father for Father's Day and almost forgot to post!  I used the pops2eat and patterns4pops stamp sets from The Stamps of Life, I just love their stamps!  The sentiment came with the stamp set not including the POP! (what my kids call my father) so I added them with some random alpha stamps I have.  The words were all stamped on a thin piece of balsa wood and I also added some paper tape you can get at Target.  The wood gave the card a cool, different look and was easy to cut with scissors.
