So Happy

First of all, thanks to everyone who left such kind notes! Tough to put into words what it means to me, but I really appreciate the kind thoughts! Needing time to recharge, reflect, renew, rejuvenate, recover....all sorts of things the past couple of weeks had just stolen my creative spirit so I am slowing coming back.

I just signed up for a Diaper Fold Swap at SCS and chosen a ladies pouch, theme of my choice. I thought I would go for an Autumn theme. Well....didn't end up that way! Here is the what I came up with! I found this pretty paper and coordinating stamp set from October Afternoon, and used my chalk ink in two colors to stamp the images. This is a pretty large pouch, since I used a 12x12 piece of card stock; I added a ribbon so it could be hung on a door or hook. The insert card is blank, so the sender can write a quick note.

Very quick and easy! I am surprised I never tried this before! Thanks for stopping by; I hope to do a few posts this week! Also, I have become a SU! demo! so I will be launching my SU! site shortly. I am a SU! newbie even though I have been stamping for 15 years~ (go figure) so I am really really really excited!!!! More to come on that soon!

Thanks! Have a good day!
