Some art!!!!

I surprised myself today by actually sitting down and doing something creative. After the difficulties of the past two weeks I was inspired by Wednesday Stamper to join in with their theme of trees. I have this wonderful tree stamp by Cherry Pie that I often use and just played around with it a little. Perhaps this is the start of me getting back into my stamping - doing the Stampin Up thing spoiled my enjoyment of crafting. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction....


The piece sounds melancholy - must be my mood - the words say "on my own" - not quite as clear in the picture.

I also came across a tag challenge Kard Krazy who asked us to find inspiration in a quote. I found this quote about Love which struck a chord with me at the moment and the stamp of the family image is by Tim Holtz.
