Kirsty, I Have Not Been Abducted. LOL

I got a phone call today, from my stampin friend, Kirsty. She seemed awfully relieved to have got in contact with me. Apparently she had not heard from me since Tuesday (today is Sunday), and was starting to worry about me. As it so happens, I’ve just got really busy this past week, with a few extraordinary things taking up my time and attention. Kirsty and I have been in regular contact with each other over the course of our stamping friendship. I didn’t  realise how much and often we did talk to each other. That is until today. Poor girl even rang up my boss to try and get some ‘leads’ as to my where abouts. I’m touched that someone was that concerned about me, but I feel bad that I didn’t recognize the patterns I’ve made with my friendship with her.

Like I said, I’ve been extra busy this past week and I haven’t had time to even look at a piece of cardstock. So Kirsty and I got together this afternoon to get creative and laugh about me being ‘missing’. I ended up making a few things, which surprised me since I thought my mojo had gone. I’ve got two cards for this post, which I made for Makeesha’s Inkspiration Challenge.


I made this one first….

…and as I was thinking about packing my supplies away I came up with this card.

Keesha IC10 Christmas

The second one is my favourite. I wanted to make a vintagey, distressed kind of card which was predominately the neutral colour. There is a lot of layering and overstamping with this one too, which is a style I really like to recreate. The stamp sets I used are Baroque Motifs, Boho Backgrounds, Just Because, One of a Kind (card 1), and Illuminations and Weathered (card 2).

So what have I been doing that has been keeping me extra busy. Chauffeur driving my boss for the State of Origin game, picking up my daughter (15) who flew in for a quick, unplanned visit and co-ordinating her visit so she gets to see everyone, attending a full day course of study, teaching son to drive (about four hours over a couple of days), attending the annual show in town, as well as the usual working, cooking and cleaning. I think I’ve driven an extra 700 kms this week!! I’m so glad I got to finish my week with some creative fun.

Thanks for dropping by, Theresa.
