*Running Out*

I am slowly running out of cards to share with you!!! I've been so busy creating cards for the store that I haven't been stamping much just for me! I know I could show you the samples for the store, but I've already taken them in to Crystal. Not to mention that the cards I have been making for the store have been out of my element and I'm not sure how proud of them I am. It's difficult (at least for me) to be creating cards using only the stuff I can get at the store. It's a flashback to the days I was trying to make a real business out of my Stampin' Up! stuff.

Perhaps I'll take my camera to work and will try to get some good photos of my cards there this afternoon.

Today I do my first day of my schedule of split shifts. Should be interesting. I'm at the store for 90 minutes this morning, off to the school for my 2 hour shift in the lunchroom and then back to the store for another 90 minutes. I think I will be tired tonight... especially since there's something up with my left knee.... sore, stiff, swollen.... Could be interesting!

Anyway, enough of my rambling.... on to the card for today...

Yup, it's one of those long and skinny cards. I don't buy them pre-done from Stampin' Up! Instead, I simply cut them myself. I figured out what size would fit in a business sized envelope and voila...

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Bashful Blue
*Patterned Paper: K & Co.
*Images: Lizzie Anne Designs Floral Frenzy; Stampin' Up! Wonderful Words
*Ink: Palette Black; Black marker
*Tools: professional quality Pencil Crayons with OMS and a blending stump; Marvy mega circle and giga scallop circle punches
