Today's blog might well be titled "All About Me" since I hand carved the main image.

The card base is a light gray CS stamped down the side with what I mentally refer to as my "feather" stamps. The stamps are by Judith and are listed as "Design Leaves", but I'm okay with calling them feathers. At the bottom left is a stamp our son and daughter-in-law sent me from the Netherlands. Next to that is an eye and the number 13, one of my favorite stamps from Eclectic Omnibus. All of the stamps on the background were inked with Adirondack's Denim.

The cat was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Lapis Lazuli embossing powder from JudiKins.

I cannot say which companies supplied the embellishments since I nearly always take them out of packages and store them in containers without making a notation of the manufacturer or supplier. I'm not even sure which tree shed the leaf before it became a skeleton leaf, but it has definitely taken a navy dye bath. Time spent writing information down is time that could be spent stamping.

Today was a cloudy, chilly day which proceeded to be a wet, cloudy chilly day as the rain has continued to fall. There's sunshine inside me though because I was able to have lunch with my best friend who is here from Colorado Springs to play with her new and only granddaughter. I'm sure I'll see her more often now that Miss Mati is a beautiful little fixture in the proud grandmother's life.
