HSS Challenge #75 – Good Day Sunshine!

Hello All!

I know you haven’t heard much from me.   Well — I went back to work ……….and moving from California to Texas 19 months ago, I had a nice time staying home and attempting to be a full-time Stampin’Up! Demonstrator.   But I missed the work pace (Yeah, I know, am I crazy?!?!) and have been trying to find a new balance in my life with a new job — working full-time and still continuing my Stampin’Up! business.  I love stamping.  And with a busy work schedule, stamping has been my “Zen” to relax — that and coming home to my husband.  He’s been so AWESOME!   He’s become Chef Cieslak; creating a lot of wonderful dinners.  He’s ventured into my unending collection of cookbooks.

OK — Hand Stamped Sentiments, a challenge theme: “Good Day Sunshine” — hmmmm there is a Beatles song with that title.  I took this picture at night and the lighting isn’t great.    I have to thank Frenchie for the inspiration.  I cased the idea from her.  Frenchie calls is “Ghosting on DSP”.  I love the Medallion background stamp.  The only thing I changed was the bottom part of the card — I texturized the DSP and sponged it to “pop” out the embossed images.  Other than that, this card was really a quick and easy card to do.  And it’s a technique I really love — Embossing.  It was the very first technique I learned back in 1989!   That’s how I got hooked into stamping.

Check out Frenchie’s website — she’s a very creative lady.  Well here is my card.
