I STAMPED, I REALLY REALLY STAMPED!!

Happy weekend all!! WHOOHOO - I am very excited that it is here!!! I am soooo exhausted since I have been putting in 15 hour days at my new job! I love the job, it is interesting and challenging, but I for one will be very happy when all the CA budget drama is over!!!! And, I have not been able to stamp for weeks but decided that last night I was going to break out the stamps that I have not even inked up from the new catty and play!! So, I used Beate's weekend sketch 90 challenge this week which is being hosted by Laurie and got to work. Now, I changed the sketch a bit because I wanted to use a rectangle rather than an oval, but the basic concept is still there...and I may make another one using the oval shape. I used my new stamp set called Autumn Days and I just love it, that peacock is so much fun to stamp with because there is so much you can do with it. I cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals and like the effect of the peacock walking through the foliage. The DSP is Thoroughly Modern and I combined it with some of the Tall Tales as well. I also tried out my new In-Colors and I have to say, the combinations are nice! I stitched, sponged, and stamped and finally came up with a card I thought I could share in public (I cannot tell you how many I threw away, ugggghh.....) so I hope you all like it!! I am spending the afternoon with a few of my customer friends who are threatening to send a search party out for me because they want their new catties, lol!! Sooo, we will spend this afternoon happily drooling over the catty and filling out order forms AND stamping *wink* I hope you all have a fabulous day - and I WILL be visiting all of you today and can't wait to see what you come up with!

LindaB said...

Happy that you were able to make some down time for yourself . . . isn't it amazing how during the day while at work we can stay on top of everything and the minute we sit down in that comfortable chair at home we crash . . . it will get better when everything falls into a routine or so I have been telling myself this for years . . . just have to figure out what is "routine" . . .
