It's been a long time...

Wow, getting our lives back to "normal" (whatever that really is), has been really challenging! Getting back to the German time was very painfull, but I think we're finally there!! I'm really happy about that one! I'm feeling like I'm slightly back to what I need to be-although it just takes forever to get caught up when you're away from your house for a month! Know what I mean!?

So yesterday, I sat down and finally mounted all my new stamps. I have been wanting to sit and play, but I can't very well play with stamps that aren't ready to play with! So I sat at my desk and mounted about 20 sets...let's just say my fingers are happy that I'm done with that job! I'm really excited about all my new goodies! So, now comes the time to sit and create! Another thing that I need it is to get back into the "groove". I feel a bit out of touch with what is going on in the stamping world...so I'm really excited to get "back"!

This card that I made was inspired by the sketch of the week (#27)on CPS. I didn't even know what I wanted to make when I sat down, but looking at the CPS site was a great inspiration! I'd encourage you all to check it out if you haven't!

All supplies Stampin' Up! old olive, vanilla, cameo coral, and chocolate chip c/s, chocoalte chip classic ink, linen prints patterned paper, pick a petal and fundamental phrases stamps, ee buttons, linen tread and dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm back now and will be posting regurlalry agian...thanks for your patience!!

You did a wonderful job with this sketch. I have that stamp set and it perplexes me - you did it justice, though. Love your card.

great job as usual! I love the colors you chose! Very different from what I have seen with this set

Jeni, Love your card. It's not that easy to make a great flower card with Pick a Petal. You totally pulled it off.
