I'm back! It's been a long time since I've posted on this blog. The main reason is because my laptop was out of commission. I've finally bought a new one... just in time to participate in this alumni blog hop! (How I have missed you all, Watercooler Gang!)
A lot has happened since my last post. It has been a very difficult year! I have not been crafting as much as I would like to due to some of the things that have been happening lately, including the injury I mention in my last post in April 2015. So, when Heidi contacted me about this alumni blog hop, I thought it would be a good chance to "jump back in".
With a new computer, I'll do my best to post more regularly. I have not returned as a demonstrator, so I will soon make changes on my blog to reflect that (including a name change). Something I meant to do a year ago! But until the blog hop is finished, I will leave it as it is. I hope that you will continue to come by and visit me and follow my creative journey.
And now on with the blog hop....
If you're new here, the Wacky Watercooler is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators (and now, former demonstrators) who have come together to share their creations, using Stampin' Up! product. The blog hop goes in a circular motion, so it does not matter where you begin, you'll see all the posters. If you did start in order, you will be coming from my Stampin' Idol, Jean Fitch's blog and moving to my friend Heidi Weaver's blog from here. At any time, you may click the "home" button to see the list of bloggers.
My projects for this blog hop:
Project One: Featuring an Anniversary Card.
July is a month of memories for me. This month would have been my 13th wedding anniversary. For this Anniversary project, I have used the new Bear Hugs stamp set, as my late husband and I love bears. The colors I chose also are similar to our wedding day colors.
Project Two: Featuring a stamp set that has survived since being introduced in 2013 (Wetlands, Gorgeous Grunge, Flower Shop).
For this project, I have used both Wetlands and Gorgeous Grunge to create a simple Masculine card.
Project Three: Featuring your version of a CASE from the original blog hop.
For this project, I have chosen to CASE Deborah Smart's card. While my card is different, I used the same stamp set and coloring technique that Deborah uses in her post.
Thank you for checking out my projects! I'm happy to be back, and hope to do more creating and sharing. Please do leave a message to let me know you were here. I'd love to hear from you! Come by again soon!
Also a quick shout out to the Watercooler Gang for keeping this blog hop up and running and for inviting me back for this anniversary.
