I know I've been away for a while, and for those of you who check my blog daily - I'm sorry. I've been in a stamping slump for a while now and have not been enjoying the hobby half as much as I used too. So, I decided to take a break, read a few books and do some sewing instead.
I've also been experiencing what a friend of mine calls "the post holiday blues". I don't think I realised why I was so melancholy though until I was speaking with her at the Anzac Day March. Instead I just thought that I was down because of my environment - location, bat problem, the fact that I want to move closer to family etc.
Anyway, I've decided to help myself and my mood somewhat by stamping when I feel like it - not because I have too. I've also decided to partake in other crafts and amusements I used to enjoy before stamping so totally dominated my life.
Last night, I wanted to stamp. I've had new products to play with for almost two weeks and hadn't even mounted the stamps or played with the other items up until yesterday. I found myself stamping a lot with one of the new in colours - Kiwi Kiss, which I love more than Groovy Guava!
Today I have for you a Love Note which I've decorated simply by stamping and using a little satin ribbon. I hope you like today's basic card.
