IC232 & QFTD09 & SSC151 & CC268

I have been away from here and stamping for about 2 weeks. Remember when I said that my shoulder was hurting? Well the doctors can’t figure out what is wrong, but they think I sprained it. So they wanted me to take a break from computer and stamping. Well I have no problem being away from the computer at work – LOL, but no blurfing – GASP.


I created this a card -- using the sketch challenge from Stamping 411 -- to see how my shoulder does. Today’s Inspiration challenge on SCS is from Two Lumps of Sugar. Wow!! There is so much inspiration on this site – so many patterns. I chose the apron that you can see here.

This card is also for the Queen for the Day challenge from yesterday. This weeks queen is Linda aka Hotwheels. She is such a sweetie. Congrats Linda – I hope you enjoy your week, you are so deserving of this award.

I took inspiration from both of these cards -- Card 1 and Card 2.

While I was camping with the boys I created this DP. I have several sheets of this, so you will probably be seeing a few cards with this color combo. I need to call this card Glitter -- there is glitter EVERYWHERE.

I don’t know how much I will be able to blurf, but I am going to try and return all the comments and emails this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,
~~Corie

What beautiful paper! Great mix with the sentiment and embellies so it doesn't get too busy!
