I'm not sure what the problem has been. I'd like to excuse my absence by saying I've been so busy in the yard & garden this summer that I just haven't had time to be in my little craftroom - but anyone who knows me would know that I was lying. My DH does the yardwork and gardening around here with an occasional minute or two of weed pulling from me. So THAT is obviously not what's been keeping me from being creative. And I can't blame it on tiredness either. I'm less tired now than I've been in a very long time. Whatever it was that stole my mojo, I'm glad it has left the building and that I feel interested in stamping/scrapping again.

Last week I received two phone calls within an hour of each other announcing the births of two new babies in our family. The first was my brother telling me he is a GREAT-GRANDFATHER which of course means I'm a GREAT-GREAT AUNT. Mason Lee Owen was born on Wednesday the day before. NOW I feel old and I haven't even had my birthday yet this year!!!!! Then my niece called to annouce the arrival of her third child - a boy named Oliver Matthew. This is the card I made for one of them. I'm not saying which one though because both my nieces follow my blog from time to time.

I used 3 SU! sets: BABY FIRSTS (retired), BY ONES & BY TWOS, and TEDDY & TRAIN. The background paper is from a 5x6 SIZZIX Pack. The cardstock is BRILLIANT BLUE (retired) and BALLET BLUE. I also used BASHFUL BLUE brads, BROCADE BLUE ink and COPIC markers to color the image.

Thanks for coming back to visit with me today.

Until next time -
Happy Stamping!
