Core'dinations Cardstock and MSE Stamps

Yes, I know it's been a while but what can I say, it's summer time and there's a lot going on.  Mr. K finished up summer classes at the Technical College and will start fall classes at the end of this month.  Mr. J and I have been staying busy with little projects around the house.  Oh, and let's not forget all the rain we've had this summer!  It has been keeping us ALL busy mowing the lawn every few days.  I've been trying to hide inside under the a/c where it's cool,  but it never fails Mr. J somehow finds me and commissions my help.......have I ever mentioned that Jan doesn't like to sweat?  No, well she don't and she don't like bugs either, and as hot and humid as it's been here lately all she does is sweat and swat bugs!  Please bring on the fall!  lol. 

I did manage to get a little scrapping in though, using the wonderful and generous assortment of cardstock that Core'dinations and the stamp set that My Sentiments Exactly sent the Cookin' Up Creations design team to work with.

Here's what I came up with.

First up, is a layout of my adorable grandson Jackson using the Black Magic cardstock that I distressed by sanding the background paper to show the color underneath.  

And a few cards using the stamps and cardstock together.  Did I mention that this cardstock is great for embossing!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
