Quote of the Week

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I apologize for being MIA this week. I was sick earlier in the week and then got picked for jury duty. I ALWAYS get picked. In reality though, jury duty is kind of fun. So don't balk if you get called for it. It's a very interesting process. I actually felt really good when I was done. We ruled in favor of the Plaintiff and I ended up running into him on the street afterwards. He gave me a big hug:) Basically, he will be getting the medical treatment he should have been getting for the last 2 years. That makes me feel really good. Now getting back to stamping. I haven't been able to stamp much at all this week. I did want to try and participate in Kristina's Color Inspiration. I feel like I can't stop for even a week. I have like this record going! I can't break it! So here is the Inspiration:

Here is my take:Very quickly I will give the recipe. We have a ball game to get to this morning. I used Basic Black and tied a ribbon from HL around it. The bow is adhered with ZOTS. A strip of So Saffron is backed with a scalloped strip in White. The green dotted DP is from Making Memories. This is stamped with a Michaels dollor stamp in Versafine Black and the hearts are colored with a red pigment ink marker. I wish I had black embossed it to make it pop a bit more. The hearts are from Verve's set A Hundred Hearts. It is stamped with versamark onto Real Red and then Clear embossed. I cut them out and then decided to add a dimensional to the right top portion of the heart only. This is all then mounted onto a card base of white.

That's all for me today. Sorry it is so quick. I am working on a SIMPLE SUNDAY card. It's not going well:( I will try to post tomorrow. Enjoy your day. It is beautiful here. Tiny snowflakes are floating through the air and the sun is shining. SOOO pretty!
