I'm alive... really

As I mentioned in my last post, I've been extremely busy lately... between work, school, stamping, volunteering and helping mom with the cookies... no time for stamping.  But I do still have my monthly clubs, so I have had to create a bit lately.  This project is one of the projects we did for my club last month... an old creation now, but I still love it enough to share.   I admit that the flowers aren't exactly easy to do, but soooo worth it.

I got this idea from someone else's blog.  As soon as I find it, I will post the link.  The colors I used here are my beloved (and soon to be discontinued) Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. 

I'm not going to go through all the details of how to do this since the link will take you to a tutorial.  I will tell you though that some of the key steps in this are patience, destroying the fibers in the cardstock before you start, and patience.  Once you do it once, you'll be a pro.

This was made in time for Mother's Day, but I'm sure anybody would be thrilled to receive this lovely tag atop their gift.

I'm going to try to be better about blogging.... and stamping.  Really I am.  Thanks for your patience.
