Let me first start by apologizing for not getting to most of your blogs this week. I don't know where the time went! Well, I do know where it went, but that is neither here or there. I hope this post finds you well and happy. I'm in a much better mood thanks to the weather! We have had sunshine for 3 days in a row!!!! It has done so much for my spirits. We are going to be in the mid 60s by this weekend and I can hardly wait. What is going to be fun is to see what Spring flowers pop up here at the new house. We moved in mid June, so we missed Spring here. I have already spotted tulips coming through.
I did manage to get a card set done today. Have a look:
I really love these images. I got them at Joann Fabrics for $1 each. They are clear stamps by Studio 112 from their summer mini assortment. I stamped each image with Walnut Stain Distress ink on cream colored card stock. I decided to keep them uncolored but did add copper Stickles on the shells and glitter on the two birds (which of course you can't see in the photos). The background paper reminded me of swirling ocean water and the color is exactly what I wanted for this color scheme. I roughed up the edges around each image, matted each, then double wrapped twine around them. Here is the set together. . .
I can't believe these stamps were only a buck. They rival anything that other stamp companies have out, and they stamped beautifully.

Thanks again for stopping by even though I was neglectful of you this week! I'll be around to each of your blogs starting tomorrow. I miss seeing the beautiful, creative work you all do. Again, forgive me for not seeing you sooner!
Hope you are all OK and experiencing great weather for a change. Take good care!
