I'm Back....

YEAH!!! I've been stamping again too! Not my favorite work, but it fixed some of my craving! :)

I'm feeling a lot better! Thank you for all your get well wishes and kind thoughts! It really makes a person feel good!

I made a couple cards last night using a stamp set from the Holiday mini that made it into the Spring/summer Catalog. I'm so glad it made it...I bought this set, but never made a card or anything with it. So now I get to play with it some more!

The first card is the sketch challenge over at SCS. I usually need some help (sketches, casing, things like that) to get me started and then after that I'm usually good to go and create on my own. This card started out with the intentions of using masking...but I didnt like the way it looked...I think I need to use a neutral instead of just doing it on the River Rock CS. But I need to order some...I'm REALLY low on my neutrals. So instead of redo-ing the whole card...I just covered it up with the punched images. Hope you like it.















Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Ruby Red, River Rock, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and very Vanilla
Ink: Blue Bayou, Ruby Red and River Rock
Accessories: Soft Sky DS Ribbon

I CASEd this card from the Stampin' Success (a magazine demonstrators get from Stampin' Up). I changed the color combos, the stamps used and I scalloped the bottom of the card. I finally got that down, so now it actually looks like a scalloped edge! At first I didn't like it, but it grew on me once I stared at it for a while. LOL.

Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Really Rust, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla
Ink: Really Rust, Old Olive markers and Soft Sky Stamp Pad.
Accessories: Old Olive Wide Grosgrain, Scallop punch, 1 1/4 circle Punch and corner rounder.

Hope you enjoyed my cards! Thanks for stopping by!

Love the card with the set from the mini! Very cool. I'm so glad you're feeling better - what a slap, an allergic reaction to abx! Hope you just keep getting better and make sure you don't take those meds again. Make your doctor put the allergy on your chart on a big red sticker so you don't get it again by accident!

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!!
