Am I the only one who struggles to get back into stamping after being gone for so long? I don't know why it is but I haven't even touched a stamp in over 3 weeks and now that I can, I don't even know where to start. Anyway, Taylor's sketch for this week is what got me started. I checked the sketch, sat there and stared at my supplies for what seemed like forever, and then finally tried to get creative. I got my new Verve Stamps in the mail while I was away and wanted to use them and since this sketch has a circle for the main image, I used my adorable little Plain Jane stamp! For the colors I decided to use this pretty paper from My Mind's Eye and pull out some colors from it. Overall I feel like this card is pretty cute but it is definitely not my favorite. I feel like something is either missing, or placed wrong.
Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see today's sketch. Taylor is also starting the sneak peeks for her new release today and I know you won't want to miss them!

Before I go, I wanted to let you know that Nick and I had such a great time in the Dominican Republic. It was so wonderful to get away. God really moved through me while I was there! We were fully submerged into the culture down there and feel like it was such a rich experience! We stayed with an amazing family and really enjoyed getting to know them! I will try to post some pictures in the near future.
