First Blog Post of the Year!

Where does the time go?  Seems like yesterday when I was digging out the Christmas decorations and now it is already the 6th of January and here I am, basking in the sunshine of Phoenix!

I was having a bit of a creative slump yesterday.  I was missing my stuff.  When I fly down, I must be selective on what I take with me.  No clothes…….all scrapbook stuff…………was a given……..but I still had to make some tough choices!  My cousin referred to my decision dilemma as the real tough decisions of a first world person.  Ouch that hurt………….and while he is right, I still defend my right to whine about it.  Scrapbookers everywhere understand my stash separation anxiety!

Anyway a trip to Scraps of Love and Joann’s and Hobby Lobby relieved the symptoms somewhat and today I was recovered enough to make a couple of cards.  In actual fact, they were made with a stamp set that I brought with me and nothing I bought in yesterday’s shopping therapy got used in the making of these cards.  Still shopping always makes me feel better.

I used a stamp set from Stampin Up called Thoughtful Branches.  I had bought it a while ago on the advice of my Stampin Up Demonstrator and friend Jennifer.  She was right,  It is a very versatile stamp set, that I believe is no longer available.  To show how versatile it really is, I used the same stamp in two very different ways.  Once as a tree and once as a Hydrangea flower.  Looks pretty cool I think.
