Special Inspiration Challenge

Last night when I saw today's SCS Inspiration challenge from Grandin Road, I decided to look for a piece that inspired me and "sleep on it". I chose an area rug from the indoor floral section. As soon as I saw the Soho Area rug in beige & black, (on my screen, the beige reminded me of river rock), I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use. The funny thing is that I had forgotten I had this stamp. But last evening while watching a movie, I spent some more time mounting stamps on EZ Mount and indexing my binders... and this Unity stamp caught my eye.

Well, I didn't wake up until 1:09 PM!!! That's right. DH was gone to work and I hardly remember him talking to me this morning. DS was up watching TV and hadn't eaten (He's alomst 14 but has many special needs). I quickly took care of him, took some meds for my migraine, and got to work. Thankfully I caught the migraine early and I was making this card!!! I happen to love it. But what do you think? (That sounded like my SCS friend Faith. LOL! But she's a good person to follow. *wink*)

Stamps: Tree of Elegance by Unity, sentiment from Inkadinkado's Best Wishes set
Colors: river rock, black
Accessories: brads, Martha Stewart lace border punch

Hi... I'm back! Wow... 2 days in a row!

LOL! Spring break is great for relaxing and stamping. We never take a vacation during this time because hubby and I have spring break at different times.

I love today's SCS sketch challenge #223. This took much more thinking and time than I thought it would . I know I'll use this sketch again in the future... but maybe an image in the small box.

Stamps: Say It with Scallops, Ginormous Flowers, Stitched Exotics
Paper: certainly celery, garden green, white, celery DSP, SAB-DP
Ink: certainly celery, garden green, bashful blue, pretty in pink
Accessories: ribbon, markers

Going back to work has really cut down on my stamping and computer time. As I settle in to more of a routine, I'll get back to more consistent posting. Thank for looking!
