Take the Scenic Route (Retiring)

I shared the Spring into Summer Retirement list with you on Friday, and realized that there were a couple of the stamps that I had that I hadn't even inked up yet!  I couldn't let go of the Scenic Route Stamp without creating at least one card with it!


I stamped the image on the background with Oatmeal Cookie - that had been stamped off once.  This created the faded pattern.  A sprinking of Sparkle Silk completed the background.   I then stamped the image full strength onto a scrap of Whip Cream, and used my Journey ColorBurst pencils to color in the flowers.  I fussy cut that image out.


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of Black Licorice and layered that over some Sweet Berry Card Stock.  Then I matted my card front onto some Black Licorice, and then adhered that to my Whip Cream Card Base. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Assembled! Season 2, Episode 10

Hello Friends!

I've been conspicuously absent from my blog lately, and I apologize for that.  I had a bit of overwhelm that hit me and I needed to get my to-do list back to a point where I could tread water instead of drown!  Currently, I'm preparing for convention (which includes a few swaps, roommate gifts, a Designer Showcase display, and a class that I'm teaching); I have a surgery coming in July, so I've been having a few appointments and tests in preparation for that (in addition to the general exhaustion from the effects of my heart issues); we're currently in the process of getting a few updates on our house so I constantly have little appointments for measurements, etc; AND I'm the treasurer of our HOA, which has been transitioning from a management company back into self management.  I'm exhausted just listing it all out!  Unfortunately in all that, my poor blog (and, frankly, my housekeeping!) have been on the back burner.  I'm starting to get caught up though, and felt I needed to post here before I go clean some bathrooms.   


This past week on Assembled, we started with some fun treat bags.  Our color for the week was Raspberry Berry, and we pulled Silks, a Stamp (in addition to the weekly stamp), Punches, and Printed Paper.  We used a Bundle this week for our stamp set, and Becky chose the Small Things bundle of beautiful handwritten sentiments and butterflies.  




Thanks for stopping by!


Much love,
