Well, I have had a couple of busy weeks so I have been unable to post. We moved back home to New York two weeks ago and I couldn't be happier! We are living in a rented apartment while we search for a house to buy. We came back quickly so we could get our son Tom enrolled back in his old High School before too much of the new semester had started. In Charlotte, the schools did classes in "Blocks" so they take 4 subjects the first half of the year for 90 minutes a day then their next 4 subjects for the second half of the year. This sounded good when we moved there, but on moving back to Buffalo; it put Tom a half of a year behind in three of the core subjects! So he has to play catch up in science, history and math. The only core subject that he completed was English and he will still have to take the NY regents exam in June to have it recognized! Kind of stinks to be in his shoes... But he is a game kid and wanted to come back early. Yeah Tom! I am in the midst of finding a job ,Jim is job hunting while taking a semester off of college,and Bud is starting a new career so there are a lot of changes for all of us! Our apartment is small (can you say tiny?) so we have a ton of boxes in our basement and have only unpacked what is absolutely necessary until we move once more. It makes for some interesting mornings around here when we are hunting for certain things! Oh well, no one said the move would be easy! I had a beautiful place to do my papercrafting, cardmaking, and scrapbooking in our home in Charlotte, and am now resigned to a table in the basement surrounded by walls of boxes!!! BUT; I am home!!!
I did this card in my new crafting area yesterday. SCS had a challange to do a card with no designer paper, and using circles. This is what I came up with.I used Bazzil grey paper, unknown white and blue papers, and slate grey ink. The middle circle is from SU's Riveting set. A scallop punch for the cut out area of card and the scallop behind the the round stamp. The "love" is from another SU set and my background on the blue is a combination of two different stamps both which have circles. Enjoy!
