I have missed creating cards, blogging and most of all visiting your blogs.  It's been a crazy few weeks and we still have the move in front of us.

Last week I didn't get any cards made.   I especially hated to miss the Less is More challenge since I've been with them from the onset.  This week the challenge is to do a ONE LAYER CARD and they want to see SOMETHING WITH LEGS.  And I'm so excited that I got to do a card for it!

I travelled to Roanoke Rapids last Saturday to stamp and share with my friends there.  One of my friends brought this set of flapper lady stamps.  (I didn't see any labels so I don't know who made them.)  I had taken a peek at this challenge before I left and knew that this lady would be perfect.

After I got home, I added the rhinestones and scoring to jazz it up a bit.

I hope I get to share something else this week and maybe visit some of your blogs.  Between my slow computer and all this stuff that needs to be packed, I'm not sure how much I will get to do.  Be sure that  you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Gorgeous card! Love the flapper lady. :) The scoring & rhinestones definitely take it up a notch. If there's anything I can do to help w/ the move, let me know. That especially includes helping set up the stamp room. ;)
