I finally have something I can show you.  I have really been struggling over the last two weeks with my stamping.  The first week, I spent every night at my desk trying to create something, but nothing ever materialized in my head.  It was pretty depressing.  Then I started looking at some blogs for ideas and thought I came up with something, went to my stamping desk and nothing.  But my two little girls went down for a nap early and at the same time, so I had some time this morning and I figured I would try to stamp again, and I created something.  I am so excited to have something to share even though I am not completely, entirely happy with it. 

DCBD 229 Above is the sketch for the Diva Coffee Break Designs challenge for this week.   I used my favorite stamp set from the Summer Mini.  It was just one of the ones that as soon as I saw it I knew I had to get it no matter what.  I love the combination of solid and line art images.  229I am not 100% sure on the color combo now that it is done.  When I was trying to pull out colors to start with they looked great together, but maybe I used too much of the Daffodil, it just isn't sitting perfect, but I am so happy to have created something decent.  

I am off to go try some more stamping while the girls are still asleep!
