In a Vintage-y Mood . . . .

Hi Stampers!

While I'm waiting for my new goodies to arrive, I've been working with things I have around & trying to challenge myself to just let the creative mojo flow.  This is fun, but also makes me aware that I need to clean out my craft area - drawers, cubbies, etc.!!  I've been finding a LOT of cards hanging about that could probably be used by someone - might just take them in to work & let the co-workers have at them . . . some are mine and some are from swaps, but no use in them sitting here unused!

While I was poking around my stash, I realized I have an embossing folder I have NEVER used - not sure why!  I think I've had it lying about for at least a couple years, too.  Was feeling a little vintage-y so I busted out my favorite neutral, Crumb Cake, and came up with this:

I've been trying to teach myself how to resize & move my watermark too - I think I finally figured it out!  Small things make me happy :-)

As I'm sitting here typing this, the rain is drizzling again.  So glad I was able to spend the last couple days with two of my best friends lying in the sun and swimming - separate occasions - and very grateful when it's hot & muggy for friends with pools!
