I hope you're sitting...

...yes...I created a card! *gasp* LOL! Yesterday I HAD to close ANY IE windows so I wouldn't get distracted...put on some music on iTunes and broke out the supplies! I just had to...this block was killing me!!! Plus I don't know if this is weird or not...but I could hear my stamps calling to me. I hope I'm not alone on this or else I'll seriously end up in the looney bin.

Anywho...I bought this Leanne Ellis stamp a long time ago and it hadn't seen ink so I thought I would take a shot at making her a bit "goth" for my swap on SCS. I don't know if she's goth enough...I don't wanna go too dark yet...but I can say she looks like LV...lol.

I don't know about you...but I feel I've lost my "touch". The coloring is not the same...I actually think that's a bit better...but I felt a bit out of my zone on the layout. I just cut and pasted and just went with it! I feel like it's missing something...maybe more layers? I don't know! BUT I hope you've enjoyed this card. I made it not only for my swap...but for my bloggies too. I have missed you guys so much. All I have been posting has made me feel like a Debbie Downer and that's not me...I don't like having people feel sad or feel pity for me...I want everyone around me to SMILE! :P

So I think I'm finally ready to break out of that funk! I may not post every day (or close to) like I use to...but you will see more Gabby creations. Thanks so much for putting up with the downer side of me. HUGE HUGS!

Love the card Gabby. Sometimes it's hard to get back into the swing of things or feel like you are worthy enough to enjoy things again. A death of a parent is something you just don't get over like that. So good for you for doing something for you..She totally reminds me of LV..I need a Lizzie inspired card now:p

I love to see a little goth in a card! I was looking at it thinking,"That looks like the picture of her daughter on the side" then you said it too! Welcome back! :-)Traci
