Cheers To You

Our challenge today was to go to our spice rack and use something spicy in our card. Well I went right onto my deck and picked fresh herbs to use! I love having fresh herbs and they add so much flavor to my simple cooking. I seemed to be hooked on the set called Garden Silhouettes, especially the stamp I used on this card. When we were little my sister and i would' go out and pick wildflowers for our Mom. Queen Anne's lace and daisies were abundant and favorites of ours. It is sad to think there are so few places for wildflowers to grow now...... Anyway I thought the tiny dill flowers looked much like the stamp I used in my card. What do YOU think??

I am a watermark wizard...

Well not really however I am happy that it only took about 10 minutes to create this watermark for my photography... The sky is the limit! It is POURING here in StamPford, I am very happy about that as it has not rained for at least a week and boy we need it!!

About Me

My photo
Hi everyone! My Name is Nancy Levine, known as NANCYRUTH on SCS. I have began stamping 20 years ago, though I put everything in the attic for about 10 of those during the hectic years of my single motherhood. I went to a stamping up party about 5 years ago and the stamping flame was rekindled and i have stamped almost every day since then. I work full time in a lighting store and enjoy my career in sales which allows me to fund my crafting habits. I am also a beader and spend my free time stamping, swimming and making jewelry! I look forward to charting my creative journey through my new blog. Fast forward.... After 13 months of unemployment due to the economic downturn I completed my Therapeutic Recreation certification and now work in a skilled nursing facility creating and implementing recreational programs for the residents. I also had the priviledge of working at Beadz Boutique in Darien Ct. where I fine tuned many of my beading skills!
