Be Yourself - Scrap Card

Oh my gosh!  It's been almost two months since I blogged.  There's been a lot going on and although I have been making things occasionally, I've been in kind of a slump the last few months.  Some days I have felt extreme guilt for not using my time more productively and for not keeping up with life's events.  It's not a good feeling.  But the advent of the holidays has lightened my mood and I feel ready to jump back into the mosh pit and create something.

Whenever I need to push the reset button, I go back to my roots and create a card using rubber stamps.  This one came together fairly quickly.  All of the papers are from my scrap pile.  The focal image was stamped on vanilla cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils. 

"Mack"

I'm sending this card to my friend Stu, who recently got a new puppy.  His name is Mack and he's adorable.  Little does Mack know that his Auntie Iowa is including a special treat for him:  a squeaky Sock Monkey!  Won't his daddy appreciate that?  Probably not.  But what are friends for?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day.

Supplies:
Black and red cardstock by Bazzill; patterned papers by Tim Holtz (bingo) and unknown (polka dot); vanilla cardstock from Stampin' Up; focal image by American Art Stamp; Ranger Archival black ink; Prismacolor Premier pencils; odorless mineral spirits; antique linen and gathered twigs distress ink; splatter pattern stamp by All Night Media; oval and scalloped oval Nestabilities by Spellbinders; border punch by Martha Stewart; pop-dots.
