I'm writing this to give you a warning of what's coming up on my blog in the next few days. After weeks of fighting exhaustion, terrible headaches, and in general feeling yucky all brought on by the flu, I have cards to share with you!
You read that right- cards!
Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year. On their blog, they've been going through each year they've been in business and looking back current events of that year as well as the stamps they introduced in that year. They have encouraged their customers to make cards based on the sets released each year or on the samples that have been shown in each anniversary day post.
I know most of you read my blog by email, so you will typically look at the first post and then go on. However, for the next few days, you're going to want to keep scrolling down because I'll be showing off more than one card each day. In fact, I have six ready to share already!
One of those took 3 days to make because I still didn't feel well. The past couple of days, though, I've felt better and have put my stamps to work! So far, all of the stamps I've used will be new to my blog. It's not that hard to have new goodies to show off when you haven't been able to stamp for over a year.
Most of the cards...okay, all of the cards are pretty Clean and Simple because I'm trying to make enough to enter every challenge. I have to spend my time making cards wisely because my energy always wears out long before my card making desire is done! I could spend hours on one card, but then that would be the only card I would have to show. The spirit is willing, but the arms, back and legs are very, very weak!
For the past two days, I've gotten up, eaten, stamped, and been so tired I've had to go back to bed. My pain meds keep me pretty tired, so I don't get started until late in the afternoon. I'm happy with each of the cards I've made, though, whether they were difficult and had lots of steps or not!
After I have showed you each of my cards, I'll put up a poll on my blog and you can vote for your favorite. I'm anxious to see if your favorite is the same as mine!
Be on the lookout for lots of cards coming your way soon!
