Thanks so Much

Hello, everyone! I am trying to get back into the swing of things after the move and the holidays! I am slowly getting to craft again! I feel guilty crafting when I need to be getting the house squared away. I have had a little time to whip up a few cards. Here is one of those cards: I love the Pocket Silhouette stamp set so much! I got the idea for the placement and colors of the stamps from Valerie Stangle's blog. Thanks for looking! Have a great day! Supplies Used: Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), Stampin Up! (Soft Sky) Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye (Out and About) Stamps: Stampin Up! Ink: Stampin Up! (Soft Sky), and Staz-On (Timber Brown) Other: ribbon (Offray)

Glad you're back! I like this card. It's clean and neat, and I love that stamp set too (although I don't yet own it!). That patterned paper is great!

I love this Heather!!!! I have been eyeing this set but didn't get it - I seem to not do very well with small images! I hope your order this month is nice and big so you get lots of goodies!

Pretty card. I love the shadow effect of the stamp. Don't feel guilty, woman cannot live by work alone. LOL You have to have some kind of relaxation.

Way to jump back in- this card is gorgeous! I love the paper. I agree with Gale, there's so much work involved in moving/settling into a new home- you definitely need to take a little time for yourself every now and then to unwind!

Pretty card! I like the layout and the paper you used. Glad to have you back!

Glad your move went well. I use to have to have everything squared away asap but this last move I have relaxed a little (we've been here over a year and I still have a few bare walls LOL) so don't feel guilt-- you need some downtime just like everyone else.

Cute card! I have that stamp set also and used it a lot.

Very pretty:) The colors are great!

As far as stamping time...I was amazed to read that you created those calendars for Christmas. We moved almost 2 years ago, and I do not think that I stamped anything for about 5 weeks. It was the first time in 7 years that I purchased Mother's Day cards! You ROCK!
