It goes without saying,,.

Happy Saturday morning! I finally kicked my cold and felt like crafting! I fell asleep on the couch and woke early this am and could not fall back asleep- so a nice, quiet activity is to stamp and color!

This week's OWH midweek throwdown is to create a card without a sentiment-which can make it a card that can be used for pretty much any occassion for our military to send home. I decided to again combine a few challenges for this card.

I need to re-read the OWH tutorial on how to take better pictures- even though I use 2 OTT lights, my images have been looking darker lately!

I love this PB stamp- I have a lot of Penny Black stamps and I plan to use them more! Another goal for 2013! I am entering this card into another new to me site- see the link below. Shopping Our Stash is helping me to look at my old stash- even if I combine it with new things- like the paperpad! I have had the PB stamp for a while and am glad that I looked through my supplies and found a lot of PB stamps that have not seen ink lately!
