Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I know…I know! I'm 20 days late! LOL

2012 has started with a bang! I hope 2012 has been treating you well!

Just a quick post to let you know that I am among the living. I will be participating in a blog hop tomorrow…hope you can pop on in!

Ah, yes I am among the living…

Ah, yes I am among the living…

I hate to sound like a broken record so I won't bore you with details of my blogging absence. Let's just say having a laptop computer for 5 years is pretty decent. There's nothing really wrong with the laptop, just that the battery sort of fell apart (just sort of bursting). I suppose you're supposed to know to check the battery life, by clicking on that little battery icon. If I had done that I would have gotten the warning message "Replace battery now!". Who knew?!

Anyway, I owe you, my readers, a tutorial and a template.

Here is the template. You can either right click and save the .jpg below or you can download the .pdf by clicking here.

For some reason I seem to be technically challenged lately. I suppose being stressed will do that to you! Anywho, what I mean is that this scan didn't come in at the correct size (100%), so you'll need enlarge this to print at about 230%. It should be 5" tall by 3-3/4" at the widest portion.

The magic card tutorial is in the works…

Until next time!

Life is a matter of moments…

Life is a matter of moments…

Isn't that true?! So why not make the most of them! Make a handmade card for a family member or friend to let them know you're thinking about them. It'll make their day!

This is really an alternate version of a card I showcased in my newsletter. The card in the newsletter was embellished with Hodgepodge Hardware, which might be better off on a card that would be mailed in a padded envelope or hand delivered.

It is embellished with some Dazzling Diamonds for a little sparkle!

Recipe:
Life is a Matter of Moments Stamp set
Basic Black, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White Card Stock
StazOn Jet Black Ink
Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write Marker

I hope you like it!
