Do you ever have one of those days where it seems all your creative juices have just dried up? That was me today! I sat down at my table and….sat. And looked at my stamps. Admired my new Combo ink holder. Checked my e-mail to see if my new Ribbon Holder had been delivered – not yet, but by the end of the day, so….checked out all the ribbon I planned to put in it when it arrived. Made sure I had a place to put it. Looked at the three or four challenge blog e-mails I had. Nothing came to my head.

The Stamp, Ink, Paper colors were….EARLY ESPRESSO, Blushing Bride and Gold. I took it as a sign from above. And I was off! Well, more …like I was…..off?
