Gifts of Kindness

Standard

I have not been in my stamping room since the last time I blogged!  Today I decided it was time to get back in the saddle, so to speak, since I just got a box of new goodies.  I really needed to make some thank you cards for my sweet co-workers who have been so supportive these last several weeks.

For my first card, I wanted to use the Back to Black DSP.  I saw online where someone had colored on it with blendies, and I loved the way that looked, so that’s what I did!  I used the reverse side of the paper to layer it, since I didn’t have any ribbon that would work.  I used some glitter on the main image, and tucked a rhinestone in the middle of the big flower.  Do you recognize the layer behind the sentiment?  I cropped, cut and pasted the labels framelits to create it!

I am slowly returning to a normal schedule.  For the longest time I felt like I was in a daze and could not concentrate well.  Yesterday was the first time I turned my radio on in the car–I just felt like I needed no distractions while I was like that.  I think I have caught up on my sleep, and I have started cooking again.  It felt really good to get back to creating, and I hope to be more regular in posting!  Thanks to any of you that are still with me!
