Oh where, oh where have I been....LOL!!

I can't believe it's been a week since I've been in my craft room to play.  Not sure why - maybe just busy with work and whatnot.  But I have missed it.  So today I decided to make a couple cards instead of taking a Sunday afternoon nap.  :)

The first card is actually an late challenge from Sunday Stamps.  The challenge last week was a sketch but there were some issues with linking so they extended the challenge a few days.  I thought since I decided to participate in this week's challenge, I might as well do last week too.  The image is from my stash of images that people have sent me in the past and the colors came from the little raised stickers.  I love the verse stamp.  It's one of my favorite verses.  It doesn't show clearly in the picture, but the turquoise color is embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder.  It seems like I never get tired of that folder - it's one of my "go-to" items. 

 
 
The current challenge at Sunday Stamps is a color challenge - black, white, and a pale yellow.  I combined this challenge with the Crazy 4 Challenges texture challenge this week.  The yellow paper I embossed with a diamond embossing folder.  Then I had some white paper that was already textured - almost like the inside of cardboard.  For added texture I added a satin ribbon and then the flowers in the corner.  The stamp again is from my stash of extras.
 
 
 
Hopefully this gets me back on track of making cards.  I've missed it the last week.  Enjoy!

Beautiful card and beautiful sentiment. I love it. I know what you mean about missing crafting when you can't find time. I was on vacation last week so I had time and I loved it.....
