Challenge at: Simon Says Stamp & Show

It has been the longest time since I added anything to my blog so thank you for stopping in! The good news is my home remodel is complete! Yes, that 4 week project turned into a year, really it could be written into a full season soap opera but for now I want to stamp!
My new exciting plans include retiring August 1 after working for 43 years! I am thrilled to think of all the creative crafting I will be able to do.  So I thought I would warm-up my stamping skills will a challenge.  Simon Says Stamp & Show is a wonderful weekly challenge so I thought it would be a grand place to start especially since that is also where I stopped my blog posting.  My inspiration is a thank you card I want to make for special teammate as I say good-bye.  I sprayed the Tim Holtz clock mask and accented with distress inks.  I also used his fabric stamp on the top portion of the card and the card base inked with Tsukineko’s Delicata-Golden Glitz…I have added this to my favorite pigment ink list.  The other stamps are from Tim Holtz and 7 Gypsies.

Please leave me a note of where I can find you so I can get hooked back in with my stamping friends!  Thanks!
