I'm sure by now most of you have given up on checking out my blog for new posts. Goodness, has it really been two weeks already since the last one?!
When I was so sick last month, I think I coughed out all my cardmaking mojo. LoL! :) Really, I've been working more hours and haven't felt too creative lately. Today was a gorgeous warm and sunny day so I sat out on the patio and colored a few images. This one is "Bee Trio" by Stampendous. Aren't they just a cute as can "B"?
My inspiration for the layout came from Amy at Heartfelt Greetings. Her blog is one of my favorites and all her creations are laudable. I especially enjoy her new Super Sketch Sunday! Today Amy challenged us to use four different designer papers on our cards, preferably using our scraps. That's exactly what I did, except for the black and white polka dot paper. I layered all the scrap of designer paper on top of a piece of black cardstock 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" and then zig-zag stitched around the edges. After that I attached the brads and then used adhesive to attach this piece to a white cardstock base. My tag is created with 7/8" and 1" circle punches. Both the image and the tag are mounted with dimensionals.
It feels great to get back to stamping! If you're still reading, I want to wish you all a wonderful week filled with sunshine and smiles!
