You may have noticed that I took some time off from blogging. The holidays are always crazy around our house and I decided to take it easy this year. In between all of the family get-togethers and parties, I reorganized my stamping space. That was a much bigger job than I originally anticipated and it prevented me from stamping for almost an entire month!
My stamping table has been piled high with goodies from the Spring Mini catalog just begging to be used. If I haven't stamped for awhile, I often lose some of my mojo. I have always found that the Mojo Monday sketches can provide me with a great starting point for creating cards.
For this card, I used the new Parker's Patterns Designer Series paper and the Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon to create a very masculine card. The greeting is from the stamp set, Daring Adventure. I distressed the edges of the circle with the Stampin' Distress Tool, then sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink.
INK: Early Espresso
PAPER: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, 3" Circle Die, Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon, Stampin' Distress Tool, Stampin' Sponge, Dimensionals
I'm hoping that things will be returning to "normal" soon. I'll be leaving on Thursday for Leadership conference in Orlando, so it may be another week before I resume a normal blog posting schedule.
