Happy Birthday Smiles!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome back to my blog. If this is your first time here, thank you so very much for stopping by and spending some time with me. For any returning visitors, I am so glad you all haven't forgotten about me. It has been a crazy busy summer; but we are finally all settled into our new house and everyone is doing well.
I didn't realize how much I missed crafting until I sat down the other day and put together a card. It was a bit slow to start, to be honest. Thank goodness for the web and challenges to provide inspiration and ideas!
Today, I have two cards to share with you. I decided to throw my hat into the ring for the DT call that My Time Made Easy is having. Be sure to click the link and you can read all the information about it. Who knows, maybe we will be working together soon!
My first card for the challenge uses Pretty Patterns Sketch 66 and also fits just a couple of other challenges. I used Aqua Mist, Harvest gold, Kraft from PTI and a peachy orange color that fit the color inspiration challenge that I found in the scrap pile. The "Happy Birthday" and "Chevron" strip background stamp are from Hero Arts and the flower ensemble at the bottom is from Verve Stamps.

Inspired by Stamping: Color
My Time Made Easy: Pretty Patterns Sketch #66
Amusing Challenges: Anything Goes
The Stamp Man: Anything Goes/Celebrations

My second card is also for the MTME DT call. This one uses both Pretty Patterns Sketch 67 and Pretty Palette 67. I was pleasantly surprises by how well I enjoyed this colors together. Its such a fun and bright card to share with someone.

Challenges for this card include:

 Do You Stack Up: For a Friend
One Stop Craft: Just Good Friends
Secret Crafter Challenge: Bright and Cheerful

That's all for me today. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!

Hello Friends!

Hello Friends!!

Wow! It has been a very long time since I've been in blog land. So much has happened since my last post back in March. I have missed crafting and missed blogging much more than I thought I would. All of my crafting supplies are finally unpacked and I am anxious to get to work on some new projects. Well, that is as soon as I buy some adhesive, which seems to be the one essential item that I am just completely out of at the moment.
For now, I'm just dropping in to say hi and I hope those of you who have been checking in regularly to see if I've returned will be happy to know that I am indeed plotting my return. Hopefully, towards the end of this week!!
See ya soon!
