*Fall To Layout #245*

This is my creation based on the sketch over at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog this week...  I saw the sketch and just *knew* that I had to use my Washi Tape for this card....
And of course, there are some go-to (for me) items on this card... some bling, some Michael's Bridal flowers and my Perfect Layers Tools.

*Sympathy Card*

This was the first card I made in 2013... a long time member of an online stamping group I own (well, used to own) passed away and I wanted to send her family a card....  I don't tend to have sympathy cards on hand, so I had to create.

Sadly, creating a sympathy card did not encourage me to create more....  although I do love how this card turned out...
I stamped the floral image in Kiwi Kiss ink, coloured the tips with Copics and then added Glossy Accents on top of the parts I coloured.  Of course I used my Perfect Layers tools for the 1/16" reveal of the Kiwi Kiss cardstock.

*Don't Fall Over!*

I know... it's been a LONG time.... thanks for being so patient!

I think my lack of creating has been a combination of lack of mojo, using my time differently, lack of desire to sit in the basement, lack of desire to create....

But I challenged myself yesterday and I made a card.... and I made another one this morning.  I've been fortunate that Natasha over at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog is quite relaxed about the design team...  I'm still part of the team despite not participating in months.

So for today, a card for the current sketch over at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog (the link is on the left side)....
I've already created the card for the next challenge... so pop back to see it next week!

I know, I know, I know... it's been almost forever since I posted anything on my blog.  I have made a grand total of ONE card since I finished my Christmas cards in December.  Sad, eh?  I just haven't felt the crafting bug.... I'm not giving up hope yet...
