Thanks for your patience and good wishes as I've been recovering. Your comments and emails were very sweet. I think I'm on the mend, but whatever bug's got me seems tricky...it lets me start to feel a bit better, then WHAM! Flattened again.
So let's hope that today's increase in energy is, in fact, a sign of recovery. I plan on taking it slowly, no matter what. I hope you all are well!
A few weeks ago, I purchased a new stamp at Michael's because I really don't have enough birthday-themed stamps. I've used the whole stamp as it is on the wood block for both of today's cards. Then, over the next few days, I'll share some variations that turned out quite fun!
First up, stylish black and white with tiny colored blings. One of the packages is popped up because I'd already ruined three card bases with inadequate inking, and I had to improvise.
The second version changes the color and turns the theme to Christmas.
So, what do you think of this stamp?
