Hello Ya'll,

I am so glad you are visiting my blog!

If this is your first time visiting, Welcome!! I hope you enjoy reading about my card making and get inspired to put the e-cards, text message and Facebook messages away and get back to handmade-handwritten cards for your friends and family.

If you were a frequent visitor and wondered where I disappeared to, well a lot has happened since my last blog post over a year ago. For starters, my family and I move to Georgia. Our adventure started in January of 2012. We put the house on the market, my DH left for his new job in April and I was left to manage the packing, kids, work, two more surgeries and the BIG move in July 2012. As you can see, I had a lot on my plate and crafting had to take the back burner. We moved to a temporary apartment while our house was being built and moved-in just in time for Christmas.
Now that we have had some time to settle into our new home, I have been unpacking my crafts a little at a time. My craft room is in the basement. I have a large space to work with and I'm not quite sure how I want to design it. I recently purchased a few bookshelves to help me organize my craft supplies but I think I'll need a custom design instead of what I have now.

Here are a few pictures of my room.
 As you can see, I seriously need help!!! Aside that my basement is so empty and lacks personality, I seriously need a better storage solution for my craft room. Maybe I should get one of those TLC people to help me design my room for me? Now that would be something!!

Well, now that I'm back, I hope to participate in some of the weekly card challenges and share them with you. Hopefully, you will be inspired to create something yourself.

Well, it's time to go and see what good challenges are out there for today! Make sure to come back soon!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I hope this New Year brings you many blessings, creativity and joy!!

Well, now that the new year has begun, I have officially announced my return to Stampin' Up! My girlfriend and I have decided to partner up and work together.

After almost a year of not being with Stampin' Up! I quickly realized that I missed crafting with other people, sharing what I love with them and helping them unleash their creativity.

From here on out, you will see what projects we will be sharing during our workshops and stamp camps. In addition to some challenges I will participate in.

I can't wait to get my year started!

Now, onto my card. This is the card I made for my family and friends who I didn't get a chance to send Christmas cards out to. I ceased this card from the SU catty pg. 45. I made a couple of changes but I kept the concept the same. For my image, I used an oldie but goodie SU A Cardinal Christmas. I decided not to color the cardinal but instead, I colored the berries in red and added some Crystal Effects. The sentiment I made myself off the computer.

As always, thank you for stopping by and taking a look!

Merry Christmas

Hello and Merry Christmas to all,

As the year comes to an end, I can't help to think how much I truly miss creating and blogging. I hope to be back more often and continue to inspire you to think creative and be creative.

This year has been the most challenging year I have had both physically, mentally and spiritually. It's been months since I created anything. I have been too exhausted to even think about making something. Then, four days before Christmas, I decided to go into my craft room make some Christmas cards for a few family and friends.

I made about a dozen in a half of this beautiful vintage Christmas card. I distressed, sponged, sewed and colored on this card. I love the way it turned out and it felt so good to make it.

For those who are reading this and wonder where your card is, no need to worry. I'm making New Year blessing cards you are surely going to love.

For my card I used: Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler, Close to Cocoa and Whisper White card stock, Deck the Halls DS paper, Bells and Bows stamp set, Fireside Christmas stamp set for the sentiment, Victoria Crochet Ribbon, misc red ribbon, brad, pearls and Copic markers.
