Testing 1...2..3...

I'm trying out this whole...delayed posting. But if it shows up at the wrong time, oh well.

I've been trying to make more of an effort to use the stamps that I buy. I know it may sound crazy, but I buy stamps and never use them for months. Some times ever. And in reading other blogs I know I'm not the only one guilty of this. So I do what I do best. I keep an excel list of the things I want (a very long list) and the things I buy. Once I buy them, I highlight them in red until I've made a card with them. Yes, I know, I'm a bit batty. But it helps me keep track.

This is a card I made using Verve's newish (okay well a few months old already) Thankful Accents set. I stamped it over PTI's spring rain cardstock in enchanted evening and cut out the four corner accents. Then for the background I used PTI's text background in enchanted evening again over soft stone cardstock.

This was a card for some of my christmas thanks, so I attempted to make the focal image look a bit like an ornament. I dont know if that came across very well...

The Dets:
Stamps: Verve Thankful Accents, PTI text background
Paper: MB, PTI soft stone & spring rain
Ink: PTI enchanted evening
Accessories: Nesties scalloped & standard circles, ribbon


  1. Funny!! Hubs was asking me last night if you were going to do scheduled postings while you're gone but I told him that I didn't think so. Groovy!! I digs...

  2. Wow is that all stampbed the background paper? Very cool!
