Better Get Better

Yes, it's the often forgotten and usually most needed card we have in our collections, isn't it? The "get well" card is one that I have decided I need to spend some time working on. That along with a whole mess of other "to dos" that I have made promises to myself to keep working on makes for one busy girl! But thankfully I was able to steal away a few moments for a stamping project. Here's just one of the cards I made:

Isn't that a cute and unusual paper? It's not SU!, but honestly I don't know where it's from either. I got a piece of it from a fellow blogger last summer, and I have not had the opportunity to use it until today. I love it, though! And, I decided to play with some different color combos while I was at it.

River Rock, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip complement this mystery paper. More Mustard eyelets (remember those?!?), and sentiment stamped on twill tape as accents as well as central theme. A handful of paper piercing (there is piercing all around the Chocolate chip layer, you just can't see it, of course), and of course the Cuttlebug using the Mesh A2 embossing folder finish off this piece.

I hope you like it!

Hey, A quick share for Monday

Hi friends! I haven't had time to stamp, but I was going through some blogs I read and wanted to share with you my favorite card/idea for today, so pretend I stamped and showed you a picture and visit this link for the payoff:

I promise I'm going to stamp soon, but I don't want you miss the posts here, so I'm staying active as much as I can. Don't worry, though, my stamps are CALLING MY NAME, and my house is clean, so I feel a stamping day coming soon!!
