My poor neglected craft blog!

I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since I posted! But with my nephew getting so sick from his cancer and then his passing away.... and my daughter having more troubles with her wound, etc... posting here hasn't been the easiest thing to do.

I have been doing more stamping though.

"Look to the Lord and His Strength; Seek His face Always"
I made this card for the sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet. The colors match much better in real life, I just can't seem to figure out why they look so different here. The butterfly is stamped and embossed onto vellum and popped up with a pop dot. The backing to the butterfly is out of the same paper as the cream with pink polka-dot strip behind the sentiment.

Here is a close up of the butterfly

So Grateful:
I used 3 different stamps from Gina K Designs on this card
I made this card for Melanie's Mixology 101 and Beate's weekend sketch challenge #66 . I used all Gina K stamps. The background was stamped with versamark using the leaf stamp from "Botanical Dreams", the pumpkin is from "Whimsical Autum" and the greeting is from "So Grateful". I used the Koh-i-noor woodless pencils to color in the pumpkin and outline the vines.

Declared INSANE!
I love these fun stamps that I got from Unity Stamp company for only $1 during a Hip Hop Thursday!
