I for inspiration.

After a prolonged absence I am attempting a comeback at blogging,
 and just needed a little inspiration.
I have done plenty of crafting in my absence from blogging, just lacked the oomf
 to sit down and blog what I have been doing.  Hope to make amends in the short term!!
At training on Wednesday, Julie challenged us all to make a project using
 the Hardwood stamp and anything out of the Annual catalogue.
My inspiration came from the Internet, where I happened upon a card by 
Narelle Famigia who is also a Stampin Up demonstrator .

This is my version.
I used The Open Sea stamp set, along with the Hardwood stamp, and used Crumb Cake
 and Night of Navy inks.  The sentiment was from Wetlands. 

I am trying to get to grips with blogging from my iPad and it has taken me ages to do this post.
I think that's what has been putting me off doing my blog.
However I will persevere and see if I can't master it!!
If anyone has any helpful tips that might be useful to me I could sure do with some help!!
