Happy Monday Everyone and I also want to wish you a Happy New Year as well! I took an unplanned blogging vacation and I apologize for my absence. We ended up going away (again) over New Years and once back at home, we have been skiing with the kids. Today is their first day back to school and after so long a holiday, it was rough for all of us to get up early and get back to that routine again! I hopefully won’t be going anywhere anytime soon…..it seems like I have been packing and unpacking every single month lately :)
I have a bunch of cards that I need to get posted and some project deadlines looming so I am kicking back into gear here in my studio!
There is a new Stamp and Create monthly Challenge that starts today. Our theme is anything goes. Nice and easy and a perfect way to ease back into things :)
One lucky participant will win a $25 Gift Certificate to Stamp and Create.
I used the sweet Wags ‘n Whiskers image Say A Prayer image to create this card. The image was colored with Copics and Prisma Color pencils. I used the Bow Easy to tie this luxurious bow made with White May Arts Silk ribbon. The centers of the flowers are Kaiser Craft Pearls in Pearl. I really love the look of white on white and using different textured elements keeps it from being boring. I embossed the background panel of my card with a SU! folder and added some machine stitching.
This week’s Stamp & Create Product Spotlight is Wags’n Whiskers stamps.
Don’t forget the Stamp & Create Weekly Candy. Every Monday we have a new candy come join in for a chance to win!!
**In order to enter the candy, you must post the Stamp and Create Store's banner in the sidebar of your blog and link it to http://www.stampandcreate.com/...
Thanks for stopping by and I should be posting quite a bit now that the holidays are over. I have tons that I want to share. Also thanks to all of you who emailed me because you were worried when I stopped posting. You guys are sooooo sweet and I apologize for just disappearing like that :)
