Hump Day Post!

Hi All:

I made this card sometime back. I don’t even know what set this came from. I do know that I stamped the image on the back of the glitter paper and cut around the flower. Then, I made the center out of a darker glitter paper. I cut the center of the flower out, and pasted the darker circle to the center so it would show through. The leaves are stamped from the same set, I believe. I stamped the sentiment on coordinating paper, without the glitter. Then, I ripped the paper and placed it on the lower right corner, as you can see from the photo. The ribbon is grosgrain brown. This is basically a very simple card, but it has that fall touch.

Yesterday, I received the seven stamps I ordered from Whiff of Joy. I’m so excited to have received them. I’m hoping to get to play with them later this evening or tomorrow. Just cannot wait to color them. All the cards I have seen made with them has had me envious to have them in my hands. Isn’t is so sad to be that way? There are just so many stamps out there that make me want to be a millionaire just so I can buy stamps. I’m sure every other rubber stamper can totally understand where I’m coming from here!

Something I hate is that school is back in session and it is so hard to get to the craft room, with all the things going on here. My son is home-schooled. My daughter finished up home-schooling last October, and is attending Ohio University Southern Campus this year. Today was her third day. She said it is fun but overwhelming. I’m excited for her. I never attended college. Everything related to college is very new to both of us. It is fun learning about it, though.
Well, I hope that you have a stampfully, wonderful evening! Thank you so much for stopping by. Come back often. Happy bloggin’!
