I actually stamped!

For the first time in months, I actually stamped a Splitcoast challenge card tonight! Now I know I'm finally settling in here at my new place. You forget how much there really is to do to get adjusted to a new job and moved into a new place and a new community. It has taken a lot of time, and I still have much to do. But at least I'm stamping again! This week's inspiration piece was an oval suncatcher. I was inspired by the shape and colors, as well as by the bold black lines of some of the images. And I had to throw in a Heidi Swapp ghost flower to capture the "see-through" aspect of the suncatcher. I have a long list of cards to make - mostly thank yous, but a few others as well, so this one will quickly get used, I'm sure! I hope to get back in the swing of stamping, and posting, more regularly now!
