Hi stampers! So I think I confused some people yesterday talking about football and soccer and sports. We don't actually have kids yet BUT I work as an athletic trainer at a local high school so I'm actually busy with WORK and not kids or family:-) But, busy is busy and on days like today with football games I work up to 16 or so hours. Obviously not a lot of stamping time in there...however I did just make a wedding card since we have a wedding to go to um....tomorrow:-)
On the days I do have time lately it seems that I've run out of mojo or been too tired, hate when that happens! But I'm getting some cards made in fits and spurts anyway! I can't imagine how little time I'll have when we finally DO have kids plus work, plus trying to fit working out in too! I have to stamp and work out...they are just two of the basics of my life, hehe. Feeling crummy now since I didn't get up and run this morning....but it was still dark out so I decided it was safer to stay in bed...that's what I told myself anyway;-) But enough of my boo-hoo's. Here is a quick card I made the other night:
Stamps: Four frames, friendly phrases
Paper: Calypso coral, whisper white, domestic goddess DSP
Ink: Calypso coral, basic gray
Accesories: Oval punch, decorative label punch, paper daisies, calypso coral ruffled ribbon, basic rhinestones
Isn't it cute??? It's actually inspired by a little card I saw at convention and I love the clean and simple yet cute design. I wish I could get a whole pack of this pattern of paper from the domestic goddess line. I also love how the little frame is popped up and that sentiment is one of my new FAVE sets! I guess it's just natural that a blabbermouth like myself would like sets with words and lots of fonts:-) Here's the card I used for inspiration:
The colors are a bit off just from the lighting at convention. Isn't it cute too!?!? Maybe I should have done THIS for my wedding card! I will need to make another version of this using the glitter like they did here too! I love how this card shows how the domestic goddess line can be used for something else than just "homewares" type themed stuff.
Anyway, that's it...I'm done for after 13+ hours of work today. I have to be up early to teach aerobics in the morning so I best get out of the stamp room and into bed! See you soon! Happy stamping!
