My eyes are bleeding!!  that's not really true!  It's just an expression that means I'd rather be in bed and need to close my sore eyes! I've been making a zillion cards (not really true either!) and I can't believe I haven't blogged any of them! silly!  I guess I thought everyone would catch my vibe somehow and know that yes...the cards are done for class!  I guess you didn't catch the vibe huh?!....me neither!

The hardest thing in the world is making a simple card that still has visual impact!  I know you know what I mean!  You'd think they would be easy...nuh uh!  I worked harder on these "Simple" cards than I did for an upcoming "Sweaty Stampscapes" class (meaning...they take much effort and have more techniques involved!) :)

I realized that I had been stamping Stampscapes exclusively in black lately and decided...no!  I'm going to do it in brown!  (go figure!) and almost regreted it when I was stilll stamping three days later!  Can you tell I've had a glass of wine?  Perhaps I should stop talking!!!  I bet your eyes are glazing over!

By the way....My favoritest tool these days is the Tim Holtz Alchohol Ink Applicator.  I've used it so much lately that I had to disinfect it with windex.  It got a little moldy!  Okay, okay...I'm going to bed!
