Yes, I'm alive!

And I was finally able to stamp and have time to blog about it! My muse has been on vacation so I've done a little stamping but nothing great, at least that I considered blog worthy so I found a few challenges and here we go!

This card uses Gina K's Year of Borders and Year of Flowers along with Stamps of Life greetings.
I made my own DP. I forgot how satifying it is and fun. I used Distress inks and just stamped the flowers in Honey and Weathered Wood and made sure I stamped again without reinking to get a 2nd generation image. Then I used the spotlight technique.

This card qualifies for:
Gina K color challenge
Just Us Girls
- spotlight technique
OCC - Cut it out - see the flower on the border right of the spotlight?
CCEE - Use embossing folders

I love it when I can combine some challenges. The color combo is out of my comfort zone, I don't think I'd ever have picked them but it's ok.

This one uses Gina K Mugs and Kisses and qualifies for her sketch challenge.  I used Paper Studio DP and paper pieced the cup and saucer.  It will also qualify for Crazy for Challenges to use a heart...see it on the tea bag tab?  I thought I was pretty clever to do that.  LOL  Also see the sewing...fooled you.  It's a stamp from Hero Arts!  I love that thing when I realize after the fact I should have sewed.   

I hope Spring is close to all of you.  We finally were warm today...42 but the wind was blowing that strong too!  Maybe it will melt some snow.
