And....

I was able to sit down and craft!  We returned from a long vacation to Florida and the trip was fantastic!  It was so good to get away....but it is always just as good to get back home and to what is familiar!  Like the crafting table.  After I cleared away the pre vacation mess I sat down and messed around with some images that I had colored previously.  Both cards feature Penny Black stamps.  The first one features Natures Day 4157K here .  I love this little image and don't use it nearly enough.  In fact, I find that I often get "hooked" on several stamps and leave my other stamps lying in lonely neglect for long periods of time.  Then when I do "rediscover" them it is like they are new and exciting all over again.


My second stamp uses Candid here and this actually is a stamp that I tend to gravitate to fairly often.  I think I have colored this flower just about every color imaginable!  And have liked it every which way I have colored it too.  I hope you like it too!


Take care and thank you so much for stopping by.  I am still trying to get caught up from being gone so long but do hope to post some vacation pics on here.  I always like it when other people do that on their blogs.....I feel as though they like their blog "friends" enough to share something personal with them and so, I also, would like to share with you!

Be well,
Sheila
