Slight hiatus

Hi stampers!  I've taken a slight hiatus from my blog it seems.  Sorry!  I haven't stamped a whole lot lately and haven't really felt like blogging either.  By the time I work all day and then workout sometimes all I want to do is lay on the couch.  Doesn't help that my stamp room is uber messy right now either....but I don't feel like cleaning it either, ha!  And it just seems I don't have many ideas for cards, blah!

Anyway I did manage to make a card the other night that I really like!  In fact it may be one of my favorite Christmas cards I've made all year!  Yay for that!  And I like that I was able to combine some of the new spring catalog stuff into a Christmas card!  Just lookie:
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  For the birds
Paper:  Real red, always artichoke, lucky limeade, polka dot parade, watercolor
Ink:  Stazon, various for watercoloring
Accessories:  Labels collection framelits, lucky limeade ruffled ribbon, doilies (spring catalog)

I got the color combo from a color challenge somewhere that I can't for the life of me remember now!  A recent Colour Q maybe?  Anyway, can you find the spring catalog sneak peek?  It's the doily peeking out there!   Fun, no?  And while you may think V-day for a doily it totally works for Christmas too!  I also used the polka dot parade paper that I haven't used much of and the for the birds stamp set!  This little guy is SO cute, why haven't I used it before???????

I'm still slowly cranking out the Christmas cards so I'll try to come back soon and share what I've been up to!  And hopefully I get some in the mail soon, hehe!

Happy stamping!
