I Wonder If My Husband Misses Me

So, I’ve spent the entire weekend thus far in my craft area. So much so that my bottom hurts from sitting in this chair! BINGO BUTT!!  I’ve crafted, I’ve messed with my new computer, external hard drives, etc. I feel somewhat accomplished. 🙂 Oh… and I also spent some time on Bloglovin, looking at blogs I used to follow religiously. Ran across some challenge blogs I’ve enjoyed in the past, so… I thought it would be a good idea to enter some.

This challenge is from ablognamedhero.  Ah, the One-Layer card!  I have to say… one-layer cards are NOT my favorite!  Why?  Well, if you make a mistake, it’s a lot harder to fix.  So, I attempted it anyway.  It took two tries though.  The first card I made I used Post-It tape to mask it off and well, the ink bled through right to the cardstock.  🙁  I won’t be using that for masking anymore.  I used the stamp set that was with the Simon Says Stamp – June 2o14 – Kit of the Month. The kit doesn’t appear to be available any longer, but I will link up the stamp set. Anyway, here is the card I made for the challenge!

I *REALLY* love this card!  I love the stamps, I love the  bright colors & the crisp edge.  I had thought about using a black marker to define the edge, but opted against it.  Have a fabulous Sunday everyone!!!

Peace Out!

Wow! Do I remember how to do this???

Yes, it’s been that long!  It’s been so long that it all feels new to me.  I could give you a million reasons why I haven’t posted… why I haven’t stamped… why I haven’t scrapped… yada, yada, yada.  Eh… it just happens.  Anyway, I made a card. Yes, yes I did.

I wasn’t really sure where to start, so I started with a sketch and a kit.

Here is the sketch I used from Operation Write Home – Sketch 233.

I also used the Simon Says Stamp June 2014 Kit of the Month.  It doesn’t seem to be available any longer, but I will link the stamp set below.  Anyway, I made my card and then I got a bit carried away and made 4 more.  More than I’ve made in the last year.  Here is the first one:

I like the first card I did.  The ONLY thing I’m a little disappointed in is that I didn’t have any decent off white paper to stamp on which is why you see the spotchy flowers.

Here are the rest:

So… Here you have it!  I crafted AND I blogged!  😀  And let me tell you… the blogging took a lot longer than I anticipated.  A new computer, trying to figure out Lightroom & WordPress… Just whooped me!  😀  I hope you enjoyed them.

Peace Out!
