Catching up

Hi there!
Yep, I’m still around! I thought I would post some cards I’ve done in the last few months, I just haven’t had the time to get them up!

I didn’t get a chance to use the Perennial Birthday Project Kit during the Occasions Catalog. The good thing is that the Perennial Birthday Stamp set is in the current catalog. I just love this kit and the stamp set!

Here is another made with the same kit:

In August of last year I posted up a “fall version” of this card. Even though the stamp set I used in the background (Morning Meadow) is a retired hostess set, I still love it! This is the “summer” version of that card.

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

Its been waaaay too long! But I'm back! I've missed crafting and my sanity too!

Rather than bore you with a whole long list of what's been going on with me, I'll just summarize briefly:

Work, work, work. One tick and two spider bites from just being in my backyard with my dogs (bites had to be treated with antibiotics), a never ending case of ezcema due to stress (my first ever experience). Work, work, work. Back/neck issues due to stress. Work, work, work. But I had a much needed trip to Maui and more recently a long weekend in Lake George. Things are starting to settle down, because…. I've been able to craft! Yippee!

I'm going to share with you a card I made for my Mom's birthday (which is today, so she's already received it). Since I haven't had time to really "shop" (I know can you even imagine?!), I made my own background! Back to my artsy roots! Hope you like it…here goes…

Here is a closeup of the butterflies…
