I have a whole new appreciation for “bloggers” … it seems to me that you must give up other things in your life to be able to “blog” or it must be your actual job. Because when you have a job where you work 50 to 60 hours a week and you have a family, pets included, AND a hobby, it’s hard enough to come up with time to do the things you’re supposed to do every day – cook, clean, laundry, grocery shopping, moisturizer, flossing AND a little romantic time with the very patient other half of the relationship – let alone time to post things to a blog about all of the things you’ve been doing. Hats off to all those who keep a blog going every day with actually interesting stuff.
I recently purchased some wonderful wonderful stamps from CC Designs. I love Amy Rysary, I found her thru My Favorite Things where she’s a Design Team Member. I found out very recently (yes, I live under a rock) that she designs stamps for CC Design. And they are awesome stamps. She also has a Stamping Bella Challenge on her blog this week and I loved the sketch. I’ve just started considering Christmas Cards – yes, it’s July. See note above about busy. If I wait, it’l be October, then – well – I’m sunk. I combined the Bella Sketch with a technique I saw on a blog posting from Kristina Werner this week and made two different cards. I’m pretty pleased with both of them.
I used circles from three different stamp sets … SSS Lots of Dots, SSS Love This and My Favorite Things Bokeh Builder. Then the beautiful Celebrate from Amy R.
