Catching up...

I seem to be doing a lot of crafting in clumps.  
I make a ton of stuff over one or two days, then nothing for a few.  
I'm getting a bit backed up here on my projects so I have quite a few to share with you today.

I haven't done quite as much as I had wanted to for the Clean & Simple Card Making class.  I did get to try Kristina's Offset Stamping Technique.  I've done this before, but always using the same color.  This was fun to try for something a bit different.

My next card is for the Papertrey Ink 6th anniversary.  The challenge was to create a card inspired by one of the PTI designers.  I chose a card by Danielle Flanders.  Rosie Posie is currently my favorite stamp set and Danielle's card basically screamed at me;  the colors, details and layout of her card are just perfect!  I hope I did it justice!

Next up is the StampNation challenge for this week.  
This time, a photo inspiration.

Here's the photo:

And my card:

I couldn't resist using Heartfelt Mix for this inspiration :)

That's all I have for you today.

I'll be back tomorrow with another PTI designer inspired card.
