Off the map :)

A sunny hi to all my Frog Faithfuls!
First of all thank you for the emails I've received wondering where the heck I am...it is always a blessing to be thought of and cared for :) You could say that I have been *off the map* for a few weeks...in fact, I've actually been off the computer! My neck and back have been a pain recently and I just couldn't fathom sitting down and typing for any length of time. If I am on the computer for more than 10 minutes, my back goes numb up by my neck and pain goes lots of places. Don't worry though! Dr. Jesus and my earthly physicians are on the case!

I thought I'd share a few things in the next few posts that I've had a chance or two to work on these past few weeks. Most of the time, it was a "parts and pieces" approach. I'd ink up the images one day, color them the next, layer a few, etc until finally they were complete cards!
The one I want to share today is actually the last one I made (and finished a few minutes ago!) It is for a StampTV challenge set by Kurtis of Stampin' Kub fame. Kurtis' blog was one of a small handful of blogs that inspired me a few years ago to begin my own blog. In fact, Kurtis was the first person to comment on my blog! His style is always so clean and simple, so it was no surprise that his challenge was to make a Clean and Simple card using his sketch. Here it is!

The CS is Papertreyink's Lemon Tart, the ink is Ranger's Adirondack inks: Bright Orange and Terracotta and the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farm's Victorian Butterflies. Quite clean and simple, wouldn't you agree!?

The sun is shining so beautifully in New York this week, you'd almost believe that winter is over....but I've been living here for 45 years...I know better!

Through it all, remember, GOD IS SO, SO GOOD!!



  1. So sorry to hear yuor back & neck have not been so very nice to you. Hope you get it all sorted out soon and get 'em fixed up right.

    I love your card! Always like the clean & simple look but I don't seem to do them well. TFS! Now, go get better! Will be praying for you :)

  2. Ooh. Saturday must have been hard for you at the workshop. And you didn't let on. Beliving in a speedy healing for you.

  3. Awesome card Kim@ *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

  4. This is just lovely Kim-Marie, I think the colours are fabulous and gorgeous layout.

  5. I have missed your blogging and glad your are back. Sorry to hear about your back and neck problems. ugh! Hope Jesus will quickly guide the doctors to a quick recovery.

    Both of these cards are simply stunning. I love the clean and simple approach because that is usually all it takes.

    My prayers are with you!!!!


Please leave comments for me! I love to hear from you! Have a blessed day!! :)
