This is just a quick blog to get back in the game!  It feels like all my creativity shut down when the nation shut down.  I had just started blogging in April and then, fell out of it.  This is a simple little card, but it combines stamp sets.  Often, I have an A-ha! moment and then think of ways to use things together to make it work.  I received the circuits stencil from Kindred Stamps and had the immediate thought of this ‘bad guy’ spaceship.
