I'm BACK!!!!

Hello there my fabulous friends and thank you to those who stuck around we'll I was sick this last week! I'm feeling a better, I still have a little left over congestion and I'm a tad tired but I'm on my way to my old self. The family is healthy other than DH who is still run down and coughing, I feel sorry for him because being sick comes at a bad time considering this is his busy season (DH does landscape design) and he's been working so much. Anyhoo...it felt good to jump back into stamping after taking the week off. I wanted to make a few cards I could send to friends and decided to go with the same stamps but use them with different colors, papers and layouts. This first card was created using Jen's Sketch for You to Try Challenge from this last Saturday.





This second card uses an old sketch from Taylor which I liked because of the clean lines and squares. All three bird images were cut and embossed using my square Nestabilites and the "My fabulous friends" was cut out using the word window punch.
This final card was created using the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge Sketch which was simple and very fun. I tried to keep each of these cards clean, simple and fun and I liked the idea of showing how you could use the same stamps in different ways and get a different look from each one.

Supplies: Cheep Talk, Really Retro, Good Morning Sunshine DSP, Nestabilities, Striped ribbon, Word Window punch, Scallop Edge punch, Piercer w/mat, Pop dots. Colors: Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Passion, Whisper White.


PS I'll be offering some fun blog candy this week so be sure to check back!
Have a great day!
