I like this stamp

Hello lovely bloggers,

Life has been rather hectic to say the least... Mum and our visitor keep me rather busy but happily so.
I have been wanting to blog since the last three days but could not because of some changes with blogger... Earlier on, I would just go to my blog and click on new post and it all worked - not any more. Then I realized that there was this little insignificant tab on the top right which said "blog this". I clicked on it and hopefully this will work...

Here is a quick card I made with my new purchase - Inkadinkado stamp and my new embossing Tim Holtz embossing folder.
Rather simple card but I like the sentiment... hope it sells! Sentiments sometimes take much longer to sell but something tells me this will go quickly.



I had a great day today as some friends came over to lunch and I cooked them an Indian meal. They seemed quite happy with it and that made me feel so good.
Some more good news - have sold 34 cards so far. Getting more ready to sell but it is a bit slow - Aleeza, home, visitor, mum and friends keep me busy!!!

Thanks for your last visit and all those encouraging words - mean so much to me. What else could a crafter thrive on beside kind words - ah, I know, some retail craft therapy and that is what I did today. Will make cards with my new stuff...

My neck and hands are improving... Thanks for listening to all my waffle.

Hugs,

Monica

Very stunning with the black and white!

I love how you cut the flower out so it's hanging off the edge. And that embossing folder is cool!!!

I always sing like no one's listening........and if they are........they usually leave the room!!
LOL

Hi Monica, I hope you and your family are well. I love your stamp. That is something I do all the time...sing like no one is listening. It is such a joy to sing! (and craft) My son is coming out of the 12th grade and I am looking forward to more time at my craft table (and singing). :) I also like the way you accented your detail around the flower. Very nice.

I am catching up Monica....glad to hear that your Mum's visit is going well. This is such a lovely image you have used on your wonderful card.

Hi Monica, I have been absent too long!! Life is just happening.. in a good way. :) We've got a 17 yr old exploring college a LOT, and a 14 yr old ready to enter high school next year. And some real estate things happening...! (In a good way also!)

I bet your card will sell quite quickly. The grass beneath her feet is wonderful -I love the way you have used the folder. So glad I popped by.

Andrea said...

Hi Monica - I'm certain this card will sell quickly - it is gorgeous - I love the monochrome look and the embossing is a lovely touch.
Glad to hear your neck and hand are getting better.
Love, Andrea xx
