What's new at The Loft - Episode 33

Welcome Back!

Twenty years ago when I was in college I was exposed to so many wonderful and creative things.  One of which was stamp carving.  Back then the stamps I carved were small and extremely simple in design, so when I recently took up stamp carving again I tried some designs that were a bit more complex.   Here are some of the stamps I've carved recently.

ATC 3.6.5 Challenge

I can't believe we are already half way through September already, and I'm still keeping up with the challenge.  I'm actually surprised myself that I have made it this far.  And even though I find myself creatively drained on some days, I am determined to see it through to the end.  So without further ado, lets try to get more caught up on the cards.

Well that's all I have for today.  I'll be posting again soon to try to get caught up on posting about the cards up to date.  As always comments are welcome so feel free to let me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
