I apologize for not visiting on a daily basis with everyone but my friend is going through a divorce and her soon to be ex moved his things out of their home on Saturday. I knew she needed a friend, some wine and Bob Hope. Also, my mom has been sick with bronchitis but she is feeling better now. I worry since she is 89 and has dementia plus she has lost 10 lbs and is not eating as much so ...that is just how it is.
Now on to better news, I made some cards and had a great time in my craft room. I created a Christmas card and the 4 seasons with the same stamp.

This was quick but I had a fun time creating this card. I used the tape that I normally use to stick paper together, to create the stripes in glitter. I stamped the image with different dye inks and placed different embossing powders on the image and heated it up. I put some wink of Stella on the edge of the Die cut and adhered it to the card.
The Four Seasons
Simon Says: Bit O' Green-My summer card
Stamplorations: CAS/Sky Blue-My Winter Card
Retro Rubber Challenge-AG-My Spring Card-rrcb58
Glitter N' Sparkle-Make It Green-Summer Card
Eclectic Ellapu-Spring is Here-My Spring card
Dream Valley-Lots of Layers-Any of these 4 would work
All of these were fun to create because I wanted to show the same scene but from each season and I hope I did each season justice. The rubber stamp is about a year and half old but one I have t used much so I wanted to have fun with that stamp. The winter stamp is the least coloured but I think it turned out quite well. The spring stamp was fun to put together because I thought of bright colours and I wanted the greens to look bright and New looking. Summer has the deep greens( if one was getting a lot of rain and the grass isn't burnt), using distress inks, with the coral colour one often sees in flowers and finally, autumn is ablaze with colour especially the background which I used, not only distress inks but also colour bursts. So much fun!
