First Card of 2014!

(Originally posted on my other blog; I am moving 2014 stamping posts over here.)

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I have FINALLY started stamping in this New Year!  Why has it taken just over a month?  Well, I had a serious case of bronchitis,my husband had kidney stones, which led to surgery which led to an infection which led to hospitalization...  Let's just say I am happy January is over!

So, on Super Bowl Sunday, I typically stamp while the game is on for background noise...mostly for the commercials.  I like and admire Peyton Manning as a talented athlete and classy guy.  Too bad he didn't show up!  LOL

Anywho, I only made 2 cards that night...then one on Monday.  I hope to stamp tonight again.  As I decided to begin, I went with the Inspiration Challenge on SCS found HERE.  And of course, I had to join my cyber friends over at The Friday Mashup, with this week's challenge found HERE.

The inspiration room from the Ethan Allen website is HERE.  The dark wood bookcases and feathery plants were the items I focused on, so it seemed to work with this sketch.  My card base is crumb cake.  The early espresso layers are dry embossed with the woodgrain folder.  Believe it or not, I still have kiwi kiss card stock.  I stamped SU's "Fine Feathers" using kiwi kiss, crumb cake, and summer starfruit, then sponged generously.  The text is from SU's "Feel Goods," stamped in early espresso.  Some quilted ribbon finishes it off.

It feels good to stamp again!  I hope to get back into regular participation in challenges, as well as blogging what I create.  Check back tomorrow to see the other cards I mentioned above.  And hopefully, there will be more later this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
