Another Take on Caboodle CTMH Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
Hello, friends! Thanks for coming back after my two week hiatus. There's no good reason for it...but it's surely the longest period I have let lapse without blogging!
I've just been in a funk. No desire to create, blog or do much of anything, to be perfectly honest. We're all worried about our jobs at work, and I guess I lean towards hibernation when I'm stressed. So why didn't I hibernate in my studio and knock out some projects? Who knows. Just wasn't in the mood.
But my sister told me yesterday that I need to get out of my funk, so I'll start by sharing this card that I made for the Humble Artists' Swap (HAS) that was due in April. I really like it! We had lots of requirements for this card - seven or eight layers in one place, embossing (I did dry and with powder), ribbon, scallops, a specific number of embellishments....it's really fun to meet the challenge! Every product is from Close To My Heart except for the sentiment mat, which is cut with my favorite Nestabilities(TM) Labels Five die template, cut in half.
If you have any questions about how I made the various elements in the card, ask away and I'll answer here. Because I'm too lazy to get up and get the names of the stamps that I used! Good grief.
I hope you're enjoying your summer. I have a new air conditioner and my pool is warm, leaving me no excuses for not exercising. How have you been? Any great plans for the summer?
