Just Believe ...Just Saw Ink

I was lucky enough to make a trade for this stamp set a few months ago.  I was all excited and there it sat!  In the last 6 months there was very little card making going on at my house!  With the New Year just around the corner I'm feeling confident that I'm back in the groove!  It feels good!  So, challenges are such a great motivational tool.  I started out with an old, dear favorite!  Stacey's Curtain Call Challenge


A great color combo!  I'm a sucker for analagous (neighbors on the color wheel) color combos!  I'm not normally a blue person, but Baja Breeze has broke me!  I love this color!  Pair it with a green (my fave) like Pear Pizzazz and I can't resist!


I've been adding lots of challenges to my sidebar.  One I had not participated in yet is the Cute Card Thursday.  Well, this week is a Thank You Challenge...yahoo!  I can do that!  I love making thank you cards.  I use lots of them and my stash is running low.  Great challenge!

I also love Flourishes, I have a few, I need a few more.  I need to use them more!  None of their stamps here, but I did use Pearls.  Their Timeless Tuesday challenge this week.

Now I may take a few days off...I'm heading to an auction tomorrow.  The first one of the New Year!  I'm pretty excited, so I may have to lay off the stamping.  We'll see!
