Back to Stamping!

I really had to work at getting myself into the groove again, but with a little help from certain blogs I have seen recently, I did it. First, Beth of Freckled And Fun gave me the boost I needed. She published a post on how to put your signature on your blog posts, something I wanted to do and didn't know how, so thank you Beth. Click on the link to read the post.

Next I needed to pick a sketch because my own brain wasn't in gear yet, so off I went to SheetLoad of Cards. Thank you Alicia.

Oh no, what colours to use??? This difficulty can also be solved by visiting Color Throwdown, which I did. I wasn't disappointed, I loved the colours for the first post of the new year.

The only thing I had to do myself was pick my stamp and I chose Love Bug by Stamping Bella.

So, thanks to everyone involved in getting me back on track. Here is my card.



Isn't she adorable. This stamp is going to be used over and over again as I scrapbook pages of Ava, my darling granddaughter! Ohhhh...I did have one orginal thought.....I stamped the ribbon with the sentiment too. First time I've tried that little trick.

Hi Barb! It's good to "see" you! I'm glad the Color Throwdown was able to help you create! Your card is ADOROABLE and I agree, that image will be perfect for granddaughter scrapbook pages! What a cute stamp... I just placed my very first order from Stamping Bella the other day, so hopefully my little images will be as cute as yours! Thanks for playing!

This is just adorable, Barb! I've only got grandsons so far, but there's a granddaughter coming in April, so I guess I'll be getting a lot more girly stamps soon! (Oh darn!!!) Your card is too cute!
