Time's Up! Back to School ...

Pin It


Happy Thursday, crafty stampers!

Yup, it's me ... I crawled outta my Iron Lung long enough to post a card on my deserted blog. Between battling the never-ending case of pneumonia and my gone-missin' Mojo, stamping has been the last thing I've wanted to do.

That said, I did manage to regain consciousness long enough to create this l'il card for the new challenge blog, "Sketches, Challenges, Blog Hops, (Oh My!)'s "Back to School" challenge:

The cute l'il bookworm stamp, from Our Craft Lounge, is from one of the three stamp sets I won on the recent Color Throwdown Celebrating 100 Challenges challenge. For the rest of the a-mazing product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

And thanks so much for all of your emails and phone calls checkin' up on me ... I really appreciate it!

It was so nice of you to stop by today ... I'll be back tomorrow with this week's edition of the "Stamp Simply" challenge!

~Hugs,

I love this one. Great colors and fab elements. I really like that you made this Back to School with different elements instead of an image using people.
Great work.

Charlene said...

Gosh Deb, I had no idea you had pneumonia. Must have been Reed the wild child carryin' germs around in his pockets, I'm sure.

Glad you feel better! It obviously didn't affect your mojo. Cool card! Love that little bookworm. Only you could make him look elegant.

Take care!

Anita said...

Super cute! Thanks for joining us at Delightful Challenges.

Sharli said...

Deb,

I've been so worried about you - and keeping you close in my prayers.

Your card is outstanding - if that's what "no mojo" looks like, then I'm going about this all wrong! LOL

Hang in there, girlfriend. Take time to heal - be good to yourself. I'll wait right here.

Hugs!
