After moving and having a baby, I now have some time to get back to card making. I can work on little bits of cards when CJ is sleeping. My latest card was inspired by the newest Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration challenge.
I have a collection of embossing folders, but I rarely use ink on them. As I made this birthday card for my brother, I decided to use a tone-on-tone ink and card stock for the bricks. The result is subtle, but I like it for the background of the card.

I am overdue to some updates to the blog, and I will start with the big one. Carolyn Jane (CJ) was born on July 19th at 7:54 AM at 7 pounds and 19.5 inches long. We are settling into life as a family of four and enjoying our daughter.
