Hi everyone ... I'm BAAAAAACK!!!  Thank you so much for all your emails and messages of concern.  For those of you who don't know, our daughter underwent an emergency appendectomy at the end of May and unfortunately there were a few complications in her recovery, hence my long absence.  However, I'm so glad to report that she is so much better now and back to school, which is a huge relief!

Today I have a card to share using one of the amazing stamps from the July TAWS release - Old School.  This is such a fantastic stamp set with so many possibilities for all the game nerds in your life!  I followed the fab sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch #131 for my layout and tried to create the old school 1980s Galaga game, hehe!  I really wanted to create this card using coloured embossing powders onto black card, but as I didn't have the correct colours to hand, I had to settle for stamping and colouring.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
