Wow, could the relaxation of my two weeks in the South have left me me so quickly????? I hardly know what has happened since my feet hit the ground here in So. Cal. I tried to post on my trip, but the internet was too slow in most of the places we visited to make it practical. (And I was dealing with a new lap top with Windows 8! :-O )
I sure have missed visiting your blogs and so appreciate your leaving comments on mine. I will keep going with the Inspired Sunday blog party, so please stop by on Sunday and link up anything you think might inspire us to live with beauty, art, and inspiration.
Before I left, I finished these samples for the first new release of Pink Persimmon stamps for 2014. My goal was to use some trendy elements to make cards that were not too difficult to be easily replicated. I wanted the first one to have a postal kind of look, using washi and bakers' twine:

For this next one I wanted to use aqua and coral - very fifties colors:
|"Hostess Girl" Stamp Sheet|
And for my last sample I wanted a chic look, rooted in the forties. The chalkboard look is one of my favorites--this fancy girl's must have pearls!
