Friends


Good afternoon or at least it's afternoon here.  Over the next few days I'll be posting the projects I worked on while I was staying with my mom to help take care of her after her knee replacement surgery almost a week and a half ago.  This was the second knee that my mom had replaced and she's doing so much better than last years surgery which makes me happy.  I picked her up from the hospital last Thursday and stayed until Sunday evening and while I was helping to take care of her and do some things around her house I had the chance to do some stamping at night.
As I wrote in an earlier post one of my favorite sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog is Vintage Vogue so before I left for my mom's I packed up three packs of paper, ink, ribbon, a few punches, Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage and Tiny Tags.  It was actually nice to stamp with just the limited supplies that I brought with me because I felt more focused on stamping and using what I had, does that sound silly?  I started out by doing some sketches and then started stamping.

Supplies: Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage wheel, Tiny Tags, Ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Meduim Jewelry punch, Tag Corner punch, Rhinestone brad, Piercer, Pop dots.  Colors: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo.

I love the little tag as the focal point! I think it is great to use limited supplies sometimes, gets us back to our roots. I don't think it is silly at all!! Love the color combos!
