Any Direction You Choose…..

Hi OCS fans;

Welcome to another crazy Tuesday as well as a crazy week.  This is the last week of school for the children and their summer adventures await them.  For today’s card, I tried to achieve a bit of free spirit with children going in any direction they choose.


I used the High Hopes Stamps called Biking Buddies and Patty’s Posies and used the Dr. Suess quote “Any Direction You Choose“.  The main images were cut out and mounted with Action Wobbles.  The Sparkly Teal YNS Gumdrops down the middle of the design paper is meant to be a sort of path that they can follow.

Supplies used:

  • Stamps:  Biking Buddies, Patty’s Posies, Any Direction You Choose (High Hopes Stamps)
