Back and Ready To Play

Hi Stamping friends. I'm back from California and in my adopted home state of Arizona. I love it here in the desert. CA was too rainy for me at this time of year, although I was assured that it was an anomoly (sp) and that they needed it. I had a fab time with family, but missed my craftroom lots. I tried to make it up by being a bit of a shopolic on-line, but then I couldn't wait to get home to use what I'd bought...many items which were forgetten until I laid my crafty hands on them. At Simply Create Too, we're having our 12th challenge, It's About Time. I submitted a card...on-time for a change, and already there is a fab submission linked up. Go and check out the team's work and add yours too.

I created a 5x5 card base using SU's Night of Navy. My background is from Impression Obsession and is called Newsprint. This is a huge background stamp that easily covers larger cards. It's made of high quality rubber and is cling backed. I will be getting more of these I'm sure. I stamped all but the clock in Memento tuxedo black. My "note paper" image is from Stampendous Perfectly Clear Stamp Line. The clock is from a set by Kelly Panacci and Sandylion...never saw anything else from this line except the clock set. Then the envie in the corner is from TPC Studio and I used SU old olive as well as SU Tangerine Tango. The clock is stamped in SU white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder. A little embellie to hold the hands together that is from my stash. A very mixed up card, huh? I often find myself doing this...makes for quite the cluttered desk. Oh, and that's my awful hand-writing on the note itself. And, I really do have to make those cards.

Oh, and please have a bit of patience with me. Blogger has re-vamped its posting methods, and posting has never been my forte, so I hope I get accustomed to it real soon.

Hugs & Blessings
