Latley I am loving stamps

oh course my stamping love is nothing totally new, but lately I am addicted to background stamps. SO here is a simple card I made. I don;t like how the clear glue showed through the clear embellishment. usually I don't have that problem. Not sure what happened... any ideas???
Well it is Monday and 1 week til the kiddies start school. 3 pivotal years! 8th Grade (man I remember what i was up to in 8th Grade **shock**), 6th Grade and junior high, and Kindergarten. gonna be a stressful year!!!!

Been into cards lately

and stamps. love stamps! I haven't made a layout in over 2 weeks. very rare for me. But made a bunch of cards. some I can share some I need a few more days before I can share. The weekend was spent in the pool and I have a nasty sun burn to prove it. When o when will I learn? but at least since I have been getting some sun my freckles are starting to meld into each other. maybe eventually I will look tan :D TTFN
