Not the Best Picture...

but I wanted to get it posted. I used a new to me set Branch Out. I haven't gotten a whole lot of new stamps lately. I've been trying to use what I have instead. Well, I decided to get a couple here and there and this was one of them.

To make the background, I just used the one stamp in the set and randomly stamped it - both in Amethyst and Celery.

Stamps: Branch Out
CS: Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, WW
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Palette Noir
Other: Scallop Edge Punch, Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals

That's it for tonight - I'm a little tired. I'm going to try to take some pictures of the other cards I have to post. Hopefully - those will turn out better than this one did.

It's Been Too Long...

since my last post. Have you ever gone through a slump where you just don't feel like doing anything? Well - that was me the past couple weeks. Seems like these 'slumps' come more often than I'd like. I have cards to post, but just taking the pictures and loading them seems more effort than I felt like dealing with.

So, I told myself to get going and do what I need to do. So, here is my first post for May. I hope to be posting on a more regular basis. I love checking out other blogs and seeing the updates, so I want my blog to be like that. :)

Now on to the card....

This card we made for stamp club one month. I saw this design on SCS - I think. It's been awhile, so I'm not exactly sure. I really liked how it looked and wanted to do it. The colors are a bit off in the picture here though.

Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers
CS: Certainly Celery, Orchid Opulence, WW, DSP (from SAB)
Ink: Orchid Opulence
Other: Stamping Sponge, Celery Ribbon (SAB), Stampin' Dimensionals, Orchid Opulence Marker, Certainly Celery Marker

Unfortunately, I needed to use this card. A friend's SIL was in a really bad accident over the weekend, so I gave this card to her brother. He cleans the store where we work, so I had all the workers sign it to let him know we are thinking about him and his family. We're hoping all the prayers work for her!!

I'll have more to post - just need to get some good photos taken of the cards. :)
