I'm back... and inspired to stamp again!

It's so good to be stamping again! I went back to work this week. I forgot how exhausting the first week of teaching can be. And the week before that, I was sick. Wow! It's good to be back! LOL!

I made this for the IC171 challenge. The inspiration I used was a pair of Christmas bulb salt and pepper shakers with great big blue bows on them. It reminded me of my great big Easter egg wrapped in a big bow from DRS Designs. I kept the bow blue, but I had to change the colors because I certainly didn't want to have a Christmas Easter egg! LOL!

Here's the Fitz and Floyd pepper shakers.

Here's the Inspiration Challenge.
