Attemped Etchings~~

I cannot believe where the time goes! Man! Over a month since I blogged. Darn job, cuts into my stamping time. But I do like my job, and the paycheck is also nice. What's a girl to do?

I have been stamping, some. Just not a lot of time to post. I think I am going to follow the example of a fellow blogger and friend, Gretchen, and plan to post Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Less pressure. Maybe I will actually post more!

This card uses some neato new SU stuff! Artistic Etchings, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand colors! I softened the colors for the background pieces by stamping off onto scratch paper first. Except the Early Espresso. I liked that bod and dark! Like my coffee! I also used the new Newsprint DSP with the music notes there~~~

I hope your having a good time wrapping up summer! Plan a BBQ and end with a bang! Here in AZ the kids go back to school in two weeks. Not everywhere I know, but here e are buying pencils and notebooks already! Don't forget to take the time to encourage someone with a note or a card. Remember, a handmade card is a hug with a fold in the middle! (thanks Kathy!)
