Climbing Roses

Hello Stamping Friends, It won’t be long before the new catalog is introduced.  I am going to miss quite a few of the retiring stamp sets. The new catalog is pretty awesome but it’s hard every year to give up those favorites.  My hubby and I have a large country garden.  Roses are a big part of our garden so I thought I would use the Climbing Rose stamp set to create today’s card.  I started with a base card of Very Vanilla CS.  The next layer is DSP that is retiring.  I stamped the roses from the Climbing Roses stamp set onto Very Vanilla CS.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color the image and then added Wink Of Stella for a little sparkle.  I wanted some of the DSP to show through so I punched a two inch hole opposite the stamped image.  I was planning on doing this card at my class last Saturday but God had other plans.  I had to cancel class because of a reaction I was having from the antibiotics I was given for my cat bite.  Things didn’t get any better and finally I ended up in the emergency room on Thursday.  I know your thinking what took so long before I went in.  I’m a retired nurse and we tend to make terrible patients.  I was waiting to improve by time.  When I had a 101 degree temp I figured it was time.  I am feeling much better than Thursday but not back to full speed.  I have 2 weeks of treatment and hopefully continue to improve daily.  If you know me personally you know that I hate slowing down.  Sometimes I’m not given a choice.  Thank you for hanging in there with me. Take a look at the card and let me know what you think.

It’s Been A Long Time

Good Morning stamping friends,

I have so many reasons why I haven’t been able to post for almost a month.  The biggest reason was my computer.  We purchased a new PC and it has Windows 10.  My son who owns his own technology business set up the computer on Easter Sunday.  I tried to import my pictures and get to my blog but since I am not computer savvy I was out of luck.  Fortunately for my son but unfortunate for me his business is very busy.  He has access to remote into my computer and thought he had me set but I still had issues.  So finally yesterday, Mother’s day he has me squared away and I think I know what I’m doing.  While this was happening my 10 year old cat who is not getting along with our new addition, bit my hand (a deep bite).  I am getting infusions for my RA and because it messes with my immune system I went to Urgent Care immediately.  So I had to keep the hand wrapped for 7 days and take a nasty antibiotic.  All is healing well.  I have had little time to be creative so today I want to share with you some of the cards made by my downline, Dawn.  She is so talented and needs to be recognized for her creativity.  Please take a look. Let me know if you have comments.  I will be sure to pass them on to Dawn.
