Blazing Candle

Cardbase - Memory Box; Candle - DJ Inkers; #'s Cuddlebug Embossing sleeve; Inks & markers - CTMH; Stickles; Sheer Ribbon - A Muse
I'm sure I'm not the only one that stamps some images and colors them and cuts them out and then, ahhh...uuuhmmm, MISPLACES them for a bit of time (or a few years) only to have the joy of stumbling across them again - (believe me, it's like finding pieces of treasure!!).
Sometimes, I just want to stamp and color.....sometimes I just want to cut something out (in great tedious detail) and sometimes by the time I've finished with those two processes, I'm DONE with that particular image. I tuck it away, careful to keep it save, clean, protected and move on to something else (honestly - I've probably gotten a few new stamps and I simply can't stand it any longer - I MUST USE THEM...only to repeat the cycle - what can I say?? At least I'm consistent!!).
Sometimes, I just want to goof around, see what treasures I have and take a stab out of making a card. This is the result of putting a few pieces together (my jigsaw puzzle if you will). Kind of simple, but wow - people snatched these cards up faster than I'd I guess they liked how the puzzle worked out. The embossed background isn't all that noticeable at first, but it simply MAKES the card!!

Only you could create such a great card with one small stamp. Your attention to detail is what makes the card.
