Glittery Birthday

Well, I think this week I should have just stuck to cleaning my stamp room. My stamping creativity has gone into hiding!!! I struggled again with today's SCS challenge. Every time I tried something, that tilted oval just looked like a big fat egg. I had been playing with my new Chunky Glitter for my stamp club on Friday, and I had a gorgeous red chipboard flower made, which I wanted to incorporate into my card. I wish you could see it IRL! (Click on the pic for a better view.) But as simple as this card is, it was a looooong road getting there! I wanted to use all SU products so I can also post it on my demo website, and I kept turning to renegade stamp sets that were littered all over my table!!! Anyway, here it is and that's the end of my stamping for today. I am exhausted! I will say, I put all my Nestabilities in CD cases with magnetic strips, eliminating a lot of clutter, which is something I had been wanting to do for a while!! A small success! Thanks to Debbie Olson for that great idea.

Your stamping creativity may have come across to NZ and taken mine for a holiday... its been ages since I have posted anything... you still make beautiful cards without it.
