Feeling Blue & Missing You

Had time to work on a card yesterday as it was raining here and my hubby was working. Funny what you can do when you have the house to your self. My graphic is a wonderful Spring type lady, that I don’t remember who posted it. I printed it onto acetate then ran it through the Xtron.

White embossed the Hero Arts script on the corner, trimmed to size and added it to a scrap of designer paper.

The cream panel was stamped with a small TAC stamp in pumice stone distress ink. Then punched and trimmed to size.

The Blue background paper is another scrap which I stamped with two stamps. In broken china is a free stamp from convention (name ?) and the white embossing is Hero Arts stamp. The small tag (Missing You) is from Stampin’ up.
Enjoy this Wonderful Memorial Day.

Thanks for stopping by.

I’m still here!!.

Thought I would add some cards that I did some time ago, so you don’t think I have given up on stamping. I have been keeping up, but it’s late at night and by the time I get around to posting, I’m just to beat to see anymore. First is a tag that I used distress inks and a new stamp from Hero Arts. I did two cards for the Play Date Challenge but didn’t like either so I didn’t post them. I love this set of colors even though mine are way too dark.

The bird graphic is from “The Graphic Fairy“, stamp is from Hero Arts. Thanks for spending time with me today.

Have a wonderful Monday.
