Happy New Year, Finally!!!

I hope you all had very happy holidays, and the new year is starting out great for you!

It has been way too long since I've posted. I have been SO out of it in terms of stamping. Even now, I am finding it hard to get started again, even though I WANT to. I'm having trouble getting myself into the creative mode. Thankfully, for our Unity Wednesday Challenge, Kim came up with something perfect:

Since we've all been busy,some are searching far and wide for their long lost mojo, and others have indulged (just a little) this holiday season, I'm offering up a SLIM (he, he) Challenge for next Wednesday.........

Sometimes
Less
Is
More

A card base (you can layer if you like), an image and/or sentiment, and one embellishment.

I'm a pretty simple, basic kind of gal and like those clean and simple type cards that are quick and easy to make. Unity has lots of great stamps that shine all on their own. So............this coming Wednesday, just keep it simple!! Easy enough, right?? Can't wait to see what everyone creates!!
Well, I kept it simple, alright. In fact, I was reminded of the term KISS: Keep it Simple, Stupid!!! and thought it applied to me this week. So I used my Kiss stamp from November's KOTM.


Self explanatory, I think, other than I tried out my new Martha Stewart glue pad to stamp the kiss with, and then used red glitter. Super easy, and yet it seriously taxed me. I'm going to have to get back into the groove somehow!!! Anyone have any ideas for me??

Looking forward to Hip Hop tomorrow... maybe that will get me going.
