April COTM

I am just in love with the Time Well Spent stamp set - even though I'm not normally a flower person. Here's a card that I created for my last workshop and also for my COTM swaps this month.

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Time Well Spent
CS: Glossy Photo, Basic Black, Pink Passion
Technique: Crayon Resist
Ink: Pink Passion, Basic Black, Almost Amethyst, Orchid Opulence
Other: Sponge daubers, crayon, eyelets

I'm Back!

Wow, I hadn't realized how long it has been since I last posted. It has been an incredibly busy and hectic time. Here's a few updates:

  • Dad is doing muc better- the experimental treatment has been working and the gangrene in his foot is almost completely gone. He still has some health challenges in front of him but this is a huge improvement from December when doctors were saying he was going to need his leg amputated.
  • Andrea has once again been hit by Mono- this makes her 3rd time in 3 years and the doctor said this was the worst ever
  • Amadeus is doing well with tennis and we're back to our 5-6 day per week on the road which doesn't leave lots of time for stamping
  • And we have had a few new additions to the family (luckily, 3 out of 4 will be moving out soon!) See the picture for their cuteness (you may have to tilt your head to see them)
