Wow, have I been absent a long time or what? I have contemplated a few times over the last few months how to go about bringing this blog of mine back to life, and was just at a loss. I got somewhat behind with my blog in mid-2011 with my traveling. From my son, who was supposed to leave for Air Force basic training ending up in a motorcycle accident days before leaving, to my mom being diagnosed with cancer and spending 3 weeks with her back home, to our oldest son coming home to stay with us for 6 months and my Venezuelan nephew coming for a 3 month visit, then family from Venezuela coming for a week at Christmas, last year was quite a year. Now I babysit a 7 month old (since she was 2 months) and am finally finding a little time to catch up.
What I'm sharing today is a card I recently made for my sister for a late birthday wish. I started with a stamp I've had for a long time but never used and wanted to emboss it in a copper color I had never used. Trying to think of a color I thought would go good with copper, I found a dark blue cardstock, but finding a second color to coordinate was a little more of a challenge. I chose a peach color that I thought matched the copper, and located a design paper that matched the peach cardstock...and so went my design progression. I don't always have all the colors of supplies I wish I had, but can usually improvise with something.
I've made many of my past cards for challenges, so it was nice to create wholly my own design, although it can take me hours longer.
Thank you so much for your visit here today, and I would love for you to check back soon. If you like what you see, I would love to hear from you. Have a great day!
