So I've been looking for my stampin mojo. Wasn't in the stamp cave, not in the house or the car, might have been in the garden, but I've been spending a fair amount of time out there and hadn't come across it. Well, it finally showed up. It was hiding in Julia's Ways to us it challenge over at SCS.
This challenge called for black.......well, I've always loved black and white together yet haven't made a card using only black and white.
Finally I inked up one of my new sets from the Occasions mini. Great Friend. I embossed the butterfly with white ep on black cardstock. Faux tearing and layering was used with the paisly background stamp now retired. I find wire not easy to use but in this case I wrapped it around some silver brads for antena. I've had this metal edge tag forever and finally found a use for it. Non SU ribbon and the sentiment finished it off. Hope you like it Jodi!

Time up get cracking on my stamping and my blog.

Guess it's about time I took some photo's of what I've been working on and update my blog. I left my regular part-time job at the library at the beginning of April. I still plan to work if they need someone to fill in but I won't be tied down to a regular shift.

April has been a busy month though. During spring vacation, my youngest, wanted take her friend up to Ottawa, for a visit. So off we went and visited the city and family. A week later I was back up to Ottawa to move Lindsay out of residence and into her new apartment before bringing her back for the summer.

I've been enjoying the HOT weather since getting back and have been spending time in the garden. Hopefully I can stamp a few things in the next couple of days and load them up onto my blog.
