Hi all! {FYI in this post: BG and BG'er stands for Backgrounder} ;)

Vacation is over and life is back to swimming in the raging river of's hard to just jump in the turbulant waves after being out for a few weeks, but after a bit of paddling, you get back in the tide of things! Okay, enough water analogies! :)
I did have quite a bit of stamping time over the break (the most time since last AUGUST!) and I have been posting cards for a "Backgrounder Blitz" over at Cornish Heritage Farms forum.They have the BEST unmounted BG'ers EVER!! You should see all their designs!! Check them out >>here<<. I wanted to post a few here today and over the next few days, so you can see what I've been up to! I've also been DOING a lot of "away from the computer" activities as SPRING IS HERE! So forgive my lack of "here-ness", SBS9 sisters and friends...I'll do better soon!
Here's two of my creations for the BG challenge at CHF:
The first challenge was a sketch card and I used CHF's Primitive Beginnings set. It is a very Americana set with a lot of "olde world" appeal. It also seems to fit well into the latest 'grunge' movement in images. The BG'er is retired.

This card was the day 2 challenge. We needed to use a partial BG image on a card. The tulips and Victorian BG are also all CHF and the sentiment is from their Delicate Wings set.
Doing these challenges really stretched my creativity with using Backgrounder stamps! The reason CHF is having this "party" is that they are unveiling a new release of Backgrounders on Friday, which is when these "Backgrounder blitz" challenges are the way, if you want to join in the fun (sorry it took so long to mention it! Oh, and you need at least one CHF BG stamp to participate) you can have a chance to win one of their BG'ers! Even if you DON'T have a BG'er...check out the forum's is FULL, FULL, FULL of inspiration and beauty!!
To see the BG cards specifically, type BC01, BC02, BC03, BC04, or BC05 into the search and you'll see mine and others. If you want to see my gallery cards, the album is named kimmet123. Hope you get a chance to take a peek!!
I better go...the river calls!!
Blessings, all! God is so good!
