I'm baaaack! I am exhausted. Five days of constant running with teenagers when I am mostly a couch potato has done me in. One mall, one outlet mall and one place with indoor and outdoor go carts, bowling, putt-putt and lots of arcade games, several movies, lots of eating and snacks and playing games - it was wonderful. That's when my age starts showing.

I did make one card from the online card class Background Check. This is a card background made by Laura Bassen. I stamped several stamps in gray on white cardstock. Then sponged on Distress Ink in several colors. Then cut out the front and layered onto cardstock and stamped an image by Gina K. I had to cut down the plaid because my stripes didn't go all the way to the edge. It looks kind of funky, so I think I will add a tiny little strip of gray cardstock to both sides of the plaid. The inside says "Way to Go". It is a congratulations card for my grandson who has been offered a job for next summer. I think he will get a kick out of this. I am going to try and catch up on laundry and maybe make a few cards from the class today. Or sleep. I will try to catch up with everyone's blogs in the next few days. I missed you all.  Be kind to one another.

  3. WTGo for YOU too, on this fun card. You are such a good student, to do your homework. Love the look of this gray with the ombre shading you've got on the piece. And that fun stamp- just right for a young fella. Love that you had the matching pearl colors too. Well done indeed! TFS & hugs. Enjoyed our chat, and looking forward to Stampaway.
