Good morning! I have a confession to make. Today was the first time I have stamped since a week ago Sunday, which was during my card class, and it had been a while before that! I loved getting the opportunity to stamp every day during summer break, but my new reality doesn’t allow so time for it. My week days are literally jam-packed between 4:00 a.m. and 9-10:00 p.m. But I’m working hard to improve other areas of my life and I know I will come back to stamping regularly again, because it is truly my therapy.
Today’s share is a card I made using the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Season Stamp Set that is in the Holiday Catalog. I am not quite ready for winter/Christmas cards, even though I should get in that mode soon so I can create them when I have a chance, so I just made a “hello” card. Since the cardinal is the state bird of Ohio, I thought this would be cute to send to an out-of-state friend, particularly one who used to live in Ohio. This bird is great! It’s a two-step stamp, and he could be any color! I used some retired ribbon that coordinates, and the gold striped paper is from the card base of the August 2015 Chalk It Up To Love Paper Pumpkin Kit.
