The Blog is Back

My 17 day unplanned hiatus is over and now it's time to start sharing again. Over the last couple of weeks, while I was on hold with AT&T trying to get Internet service installed,  I made cards using images I stamped long ago. I like stamping and coloring but don't always want to make a card or what I've created doesn't really inspire a card at the time. I save those images. I worked hard on them, they may be useful someday, they may make a beautiful card or scrapbook embellishment some day.

I made too many cards to show in one shot so I will load up just a few today. If you want to see more you can go to my Flickr site.
Using the my new crumb cake ink. Stash image is the vellum butterfly.

The pear in front has been in my stash for what seems like years.
Grateful that cardstock has 2 sides because the cream bit has a lot
non-matching alpha rubons on the other side of it.

The balloon has been in the stash for over a year. I really enjoyed making this one.
Couldn't think of a sentiment but I don't think it needs it really, do you?

While on hiatus I also donated a lot of stamp sets and cards to Mooseheart School for their art therapy program. The first thought is that it gets this stuff out of my house which is a good thing but when I learned more about the program and how these kids use stamp and scrap supplies I felt a lot better about the donation. In the future I will be sending my stuff there.

Happy Crafting,

Gorgeous! Love the soft and fresh colours with the Kraft colour. And you're so right: the one with the balloon doesn't need a sentiment. I am CRAZY for the way the house and the tree fade out (SOoooh gorgeous) and the balloon looks so real that I imagine I could reach out and grab it.
