Stampin”Up! Brilliant Wings Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Well so much has happened since I last shared with our blog hop group.  We sold our house in Vancouver Washington, packed up the house along with all my craft supplies and hit the road across country July 10.  We landed in Union Kentucky on the 14th and proceeded to start settling in.  We waited and waited and waited for the moving company to bring my craft supplies.   (there is a shortage of labor and trucks right now)  On Monday August 3 the truck  arrived and I received my supplies.  It took a few days to unload and set up my new temporary space but boy does it feel wonderful to be back.  It might take me a few days to get the creative juices flowing, but I am excited to start sharing with all of you again.

The Theme:

A small disclaimer:  Most of my stamp sets seems to be florals this time around with a critter not to be found.  With the stamp sets that I had to choose from I could use birds or butterflies.   Neither fall into the critter category so this one is a stretch.  Use your imagination, today my winged beauty is called a critter (LOL)

    Beautiful as all your cards are. Question. Does it need to be the same format as what you have done?
    I made one but not the same layout.
