I am back!

It's been a long time since I stamped and I almost convinced myself that I no longer could make anything crafty again. Almost! I had a little medical issue that put me in the hospital for 8 days over Thanksgiving and took another month to recover. Then of course there was Christmas. So no more excuses. it's a new year and time to get back to my favorite hobby! My friend Brenda(sassybee) talked me into dragging a suitcase full of supplies and meeting her and some of her friends at Archivers to use the workroom. I scrambled around and finally did it. I forced myself to use one pattern paper pack and coordinating cardstock and several stamp sets. I normally can't work that way because I change my mind a million times and then I don't have the supplies I need. I did need to go buy a stampin'spot size ink pad while I was there and I desparately looked for some matching ribbon, but I couldn't find ribbon in the store that would work.  Had I been at home I know I would have had some that would have been perfect. Oh well. I made do and ended up with 3 simple cards that turned out just fine without all the extra stuff. I managed 3 whole cards away from home and out of my cave. That in itself was an accomplishment!

Stamps: Stampin Up Upsy Daisy
Ink: Black, Versafine chalk ink Hydrangea
