Stay, please...I promise (pinkie promise, in fact) I don't have yet another Valentine card! Done. with. the. Valentines. Now, I'm just waiting word to hear they arrived at my brother and sister-in-law's house, safely intact.
Quick share this morning (yes, at work...naughty me) for The Alley Way Stamps: BE Inspired #47 challenge:
as well as the Simon Monday Challenge: We Love Stamps
I'm feeling light years behind in trends - no splatters or embossing paste, no feathers or stencils (yet), no fancy stamping techniques - just simple little cards. And I've decided that maybe that *might* be my style for the time being...getting more comfortable with the basics, then moving on, instead of trying to 'accelerate' my process and winding up with a tummy-patting recycle bin.
So...a 'just me' simple card and, a matching envelope! Thanks to Shannon's sweet delights here, I was 'reciprocally inspired' (Shannon is soooo often my muse!! Thank you, dear friend, for 'test-driving' new techniques that not only make my day sparkle when you share your outstanding results, but fan sparks to expand my horizons!) to make a mini (or several, as you'll see later) card AND break open my We Are Memory Keepers' envelope punch board. Shannon called it the best thing ever. I agree!!
Here's my card, and for the first time, I used a wooden triangle embellishment - thank you, Barb, for sharing these with me - with a yellow rhinestone nestled inside. As I mentioned, I'm slow on trends, but I arrive at some destinations...eventually. Three TAWS sets used here: In Stitches, Wish Big, and All About You.
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
