Back in the Saddle


Yes, at long last, the wayward stamper is back. I sort of ignored my blog in August when we all were getting a little antsy for school to start back up, and I lost my stampin' mojo. Plus, my DH had lost his job after they held his position the whole year he was in Iraq due to company restructuring, so he's been home THE WHOLE SUMMER! Those of you who are SAHM's understand how having DH around all the time can just plain throw off your schedule a bit. I felt guilty stamping while he was trying to find a job. So, except for my Stampin' Up classes, I quit stamping.

So, fast forward to now, DH has an AMAZING job! He was in medical sales for years, and he managed to land a job with a new company Valor Healthcare which builds health care clinics for veterans!!!! This is one of those "God led us to this" jobs for my DH. He's a wounded veteran who needed a job and this is perfect for him! He's now able to talk to veterans and help them find good health care.

The other reason that I'm blogging again is simply because two stampin' buddies of mine, Liz and Michelle told me, "post some cards will ya!" I also went to Liz's house last weekend and case'd some of her cards that she had lying around and that did the trick. Now, I'm itchin' to stamp again, and it feels great!
This card was for this week's color challenge at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ and we were challenged to use pink. I still have some of this SU retired patterned paper lying around, so I went with it. This is a 4" square card that I made from some Creamy Caramel scrap cardstock.
Thanks for visiting again. I've got another card to post later, and lots of new things to share!
