Sorry for Being MIA and a Card

Hello again! I know I have been missing, well actually more like putting my blog aside for a bit. Life has been crazy- between work and training and the hubby and father-in-law not being well, my plate was a little too full. I had to focus on doing one thing at a time and crafting was put on hold. But everything is settling down a bit and I am able to release some stress through my creativity.

I recently went to a baby shower to welcome a new little bundle and was excited to test drive some new to me stamps. 

I one of my Pink Cat Studio stamps that I got recently from one of my favorite ladies on Spliltcoaststampers, Vicki. You can check her out here and see all her stamps in search of a new home (lol). Anyways I used some of my new Recollections card stock, the brown polka dots for the background. I then paired it with pink K&Co small polka dot paper. I mounted all that on a card base from Wal-Mart. The sentiment is from an MFT A La Mode stamp set. I used my new boarder punch and my new flower punches. I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils. I was please with how it turned out and the recipient was really impressed, which made me feel good. 

I don't have enough Copics yet to colour my images, but I am hoping to change that soon. I am also hoping to get a camera soon so I don't have to keep taking pictures with my Ipod. Hope everyone had a great weekend, and has a great week!

Some Recent Projects

I just wanted to stop in on this busy Easter Sunday to share some things I have recently made. I have had a couple of occasions that have needed cards, etc. I wanted to share the finished results.

Here are four tags I made for our Easter baskets:

Here is a little Easter card I made for our neighbor:

Both projects used my MFT Pure Innocence (I think it's called) Warm Fuzzies stamp set. I coloured all of them with my Prismacolor pencils. They used DCWV paper and some K&Co Paper. I am pretty happy with how they turned out!

This is a thank you card I made for our neighbor. I used some of my Pink Cat Studio Lily and Tweet stamps for this card. I just recently bought them off Splitcoaststampers. I was excited to break them out and take them for a spin! I used DCWV paper and a card base from Wal-Mart. The bling is from Dollarama. I coloured this imagine with my Prismacolors pencils again.

This is a birthday card I made for my father in law. I used my Billy Pink Cat Studio stamp set. I also got this set from Splitcoaststampers. The paper is from American Crafts. The card base is from Wal-Mart. I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils.

So that is part of what I have been up to, ha ha. I am back to work on Monday, but I got some fun stuff to play with from a recent trip to Winnipeg (like my new ATG Gun!). I also have some stuff coming in the mail, so more toys to play with, ya! Have a great week!
