Yesterday was a beautiful day to welcome our second grandchild. Baby Harmon Prine (to be called Hank), you send me soaring to celebrate you!
I thought of this Stampin' Up! stamp set, Send Me Soaring, instead of the usual baby sets because its such an apt description of how I feel. What special feelings does it bring to mind for you?
Besides "send me soaring" and "celebrate you", this stamp set also includes the words "hope everything looks up soon". That makes it a perfect card for completely opposite situations – does that make sense? How many single stamp sets can do that?
There are six different kites in the set along with a string, a tail and the clouds. On this card, instead of the tail stamp, I used Bakers twine and let it hang loose.This is a monochromatic card, using only the in color Island Indigo. The background is from the Twitterpated designer series paper. Add a variety of Stampin' Up! punches and you have a quick and easy handmade card!

Even though kite flying is more of a spring activity in Minnesota, it fits perfectly with this winter. We have no snow on the ground and the weather is mild, so those empty fields beckon the kite fliers among us! Personally, I just like the feeling the Send Me Soaring Stamp Set evokes. I can envision it perfectly from the comfort of my home!
