Back to basic

It took me almost two months to come back with something crafty to submit for a challenge. I guess my mojo disappeared and did not want to come back. I hope you are all doing well and enjoying summer. The daily routine of working, studying ( yes again and exam planned for October but now on a summer break!), gardening, baking and last but certainly not least my family took all of my time.

And for getting back to cardmaking and blogging again I started with the basics. Stamping and a bit of help from a favorite die:)

I made my card for this weeks'challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog. That's where I started to submit my cards.  And still my favorite challenge; I hope to play along more often. This week  we're supposed to use a color challenge:

And I made this card:

And a close up for the colors:)

Hope you are all well.
