I have to admit that it has been tough to find the motivation to stamp since we've gotten back from our trip. I'm not really sure why, but it probably has something to do with the fact that I haven't ordered any new goodies in quite some time. Well, never fear, a box full of beautiful stamps from the Occasions Mini is on it's way and should arrive later this week. In the meantime, I decided to get the ink rolling today, and dive in!
Whenever I'm in a stamping slump, I turn to sketches. These are a fantastic way to get the creative juices flowing. I picked one of the Fall-to-Layouts that I missed out on and I made this card. I decided to keep it really simple and elegant and I am pretty pleased. :)
Here's a close-up of the detail work, just in case you missed it:
And guess what? I actually got two cards completed today - yippee! I'm starting to get into the groove. So, stop by tomorrow to see a cutie-patootie Valentine. 'Bye for now!
