Happy Tuesday! It seems like days since I’ve stamped or even felt like stamping. I’ve busied myself getting some household chores done that were nagging at me and really just sitting around on my flabby fanny. It’s hot here as I know it’s hot everywhere. This does not help the personal power surges and all one can do is walk into the kitchen and stick their head in the freezer! I personally would like to blame the heat from keeping me out the studio, but I think I just needed a recharge.

I started working on some images for a card on Saturday, and didn’t touch them again until late last night. I haven’t been very inspired actually, and had these images colored, all cut out, sitting on my counter and didn’t have a clue what to do with them. I tried working on something else, but the mojo just wasn’t there either. Finally around 9:00 p.m. last night, I got an idea.

At first I was really trying for something fresh and clean, but I ended up shabby and distressed (so what else is new).
