Baroque Happiness

Good Saturday morning! I am really sorry that I haven't posted in quite a while. I was using all my free time at school to catch up on grading, lesson plans, meetings, etc., etc. And then I got sick. Well, not sick enough to stay home (although some might have - and maybe I should have anyway). I have had migraines for several days now. At first I thought it was from allergies but now I don't know. I got 12 hours of sleep last night and I feel pretty good right now. My son has a soccer game this morning so we have that to do. I will see how I feel after that. I really want to get some stamping done! I thought that I would last weekend but I ended up cleaning out drawers and doing like 9 loads of laundry!!! UGH! Tomorrow I have a Close To My Heart party to go to. I am looking forward to getting some more clear blocks as I have been collecting quite a few clear stamps!! I got some new ones from Verve. OOOOOHHH!! I can't wait to play with those!!

O.k. On to the posted card. Yeah, not my favorite. I tried a sketch and this was the result. I don't completely hate it but I certainly don't love it. So, it will do. Anyway, I will let you form your own opinions. Or better yet, why don't you make a card using this layout and show me how to use it for "good"!!! Have a great weekend!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Baroque Motifs, Heard From the Heart; Paper- Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Gray, Whisper White; Ink- Baja Breeze; Kiwi Kiss, Basic Gray; Accessories- vintage brad, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, dimensionals

  1. Hope you're feeling much better.

    I think I'm going through withdrawal. I found your blog a couple months ago and love your style. I've missed seeing your creations the last couple weeks and hope to see you back again soon.

    Oh, and I like this card. I CASEd it, changing the stamp set and adding just a couple things, but still keeping the general idea. I really like how it turned out. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
