Good evening! Long time no see! I'm just going to skip the excuses (life, holidays, illness) and jump straight into stamping talk. Oh, how I've missed my stamps, and my dp. My inks. Ribbon. Especially, ribbon. Jewels. Tea dye stains. Dimensionals. *sigh*
Lots of goodies showed up on my porch during the winter break and they have been begging me to play with them. Some fun new PTI stamps as well as some new dp made it onto this card. I couldn't choose just one to work with! They were all begging to be used! The dp is Echo Park's Wintertime line, and some new Dawn McVey stamps called my name in the last PTI release. I'm always stumped when it comes to tall vertical images, and I thought this little birdcage just might help solve that problem.
I used Karen's gorgeous Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week to aid this card on it's path to completion. I have to admit, that I really loved the circle image on this card. I know... Weird, right? I borrowed a sentiment from another new to me PTI set, Mat Stack 1 Collections.
As for me at this moment, I'm tired! We started back at work this week, and it really feels like the first or second week of school again. I come home exhausted, ready for bed. I am enjoying being back at work, though. I have to admit that I really do enjoy my little munchkins. I have such a great group this year! And I inherited a new kiddo on Monday whom seems to be the perfect finishing touch on our family. We're getting ready to dive into a weather unit in science, which is perfect considering the crazy weather we've been having down here so far (27 inches of rain in 6 days about two weeks ago!!!! Ice all over my windshield every morning for the last few days). I live in So Cal! This is really not normal. But I am LOVING it! Any weather makes me happy.
Ok. Enough out of me. Time for dinner, some brainless TV time, and then bed. :) Thanks for sticking with me through my little stamping vacation (both planned and unplanned).
