"Smile, Sky" or "Getting Back on the Horse"

I'd been admiring this line of little nymph stamps for a while. Looking on the internet I can't honestly tell you how to find them, but I've seen them several times at Expos and have always passed them up due to their price tag ($10). But they do come mounted and they do have sentiments with them, plus the characters are a nice size, so Mike said go ahead and get them. After spending most of last Friday sleeping I wanted to photograph, organise, and play with my purchases from Thursday's visit to the Expo. I really liked the colours of the Just Splendid paper line and I wanted to have something whimsical to go with the bright and fun imagery. I took little Sky out and thought I'd make a card for my friend Sue. It was so good to get back to colouring and cardmaking after being away for so long. It came together pretty quickly too, I guess you don't lose your ability to work fast! Have you ever had to stop crafting for a while? Did it come back to you right away?

  2. Sorry you've been feeling bad. I always loved your stamped images and coloring. Mine never look this good so I sold all my Copics.
