Best Dad

Here is a card that I made before I got sick. I am trying to get back into it. My first step was to clean up down in my craft studio so I actually have a place to stamp. Now that is done I am hoping to have a few good days to make up some cards. I really do miss it,but when you are just not feeling good it is hard to be creative in any way shape or form.

Any way on to the card.......

I used the new stamp from Stampin' Up! called Sail Away. It is a single stamp and I absolutely love it!! I stamped it on very vanilla card stock and used my wonder color crayons and an aqua pen to color it in. After it was done and dry I ran it through my big shot with the square lattice embossing folder. I also ran the other piece of very vanilla through the EB folder to give it more texture. The colored card stock I used was Night of Navy.

It is an easy card to make and I think the look is nice and subtle with the watercolor look. I never seem to have enough stamps to make masculine cards and I think that this stamp is one perfect one to add to my large and ever growing stamp collection.

Hope you enjoy it and .....

Happy crafting,

Moving slow,but back.....

I have so wanted to get back into posting on my blog and stamping. It has been a long couple of weeks. I am slowly getting my energy back and hope to get my mojo back for stamping.

On Sunday May 1st I woke up around 5am with severe pain on my left side. I had no idea what it could be and was hoping it would just go away. Needless to say that it didn't. My husband took me to the walk in clinic at our doctors office(that just happened to be across from the ER), and after he checked me out he sent me over to the ER. They ended up running a catscan and found out that I had diverticulitus. They admitted me into the hospital and I was there for a week. Let me just say if you have never had diverticulitus it is something you do NOT want to ever get. It has taken me awhile now to just start to feel better. I have to watch what I eat until everything heals then I am on a high fiber diet and hope to never have another attack.

So now that you know where I have been.....I am hoping to start stamping and posting regularly very soon. Taking care of the boys takes all my energy right now. I plan on trying to get into my craft studio this weekend. As soon as I do I will post what I do.

Thanks for understanding why I have not been posting and happy crafting to you!!
