We're Puzzled

Brett and I tried to complete a puzzle, for some fun family time, but after a few weeks we finally had to put it away unfinished.

I don't think I have ever had that happen! My mom and I always did puzzles together growing up and we always finished. But, this one just wasn't happening. There were about 100 pieces left and thy were all basically the exact same color. We just didn't have the gumption to finish.

Sad, I know. Oh well.

Maybe we'll conquer the next one!

Talk to you soon,

A Passion for Good Works

Aren't these so pretty? I obviously loved my top note die and some of the new stamp sets in this catalog! I never thought I'd get into the sillhouette stamp sets that came out but I really love them.

This set has the tall grass and the coneflower plus 2 sentiments. (Both shown). They can be used to make a quick, quick card as shown. They say "live with passion" and "good works are links in a chain of love". I love the passion one!

The card on the right has colored flowers. I used the sponge daubers and applied the ink onto the rubber with them. It allowed me to collor the image but not give it super defined lines like markers would.

I hope you enjoy them!
Have a great day!

Talk to you soon,
