...Hello? Is anyone still out there? (Sorry for being MIA... again)

Hello! Long time, no see, lol! Sorry for being gone again. My only excuse is life, again. My life has been hectic and blogging was the first thing to go. I got to make a few cards over the past couple of weekends, so that has been fun. I have also been trying my hand at making mini albums. So far I have just made like the "bones" of the album. I haven't really started decorating any of them yet. I am fascinated by them, not sure why. All the different ways you can decorate them and add tags and pockets, just seems fun.

Anyways here of some pictures of my cards.

Card #1
  • Stamp: Lili of the Valley "Messy Messages"
  • Coloured with: Prismacolors
  • Paper: DCWV "Stack 7", Staples Card Stock, Wal-Mart brand card base
  • Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Distress Ink in Spun Sugar
  • Embellishments: paper doily, flat back pearls 

Card #2
  • Stamp: Greeting Farm "Down by the Pond"
  • Coloured with: Prismacolors
  • Paper: DCWV "Stack 7", Staples Card Stock, Wal-Mart card base
  • Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink in "Peeled Paint"
Some exciting news! I contacted the people at Operation Write Home and asked if I could get a stamp for the back of my cards, since I am in Canada the form only has US info on it. They are free if anyone would like to get one, just follow the links on the website. Anyways, the very nice people there said yes and offered to send me one. I got it in the mail last week, along with the beautiful card pictured below. I am excited to make some cards to help people out! I will post more as I do this.

Anyways, sorry again for being away so long. I hoping to get back into the groove of crafting and writing. It is a stress reliever for me, something that allows me to take my mind off my day. Your comments also brighten my day, so thank you to those who take the time to let me know that you stopped by!
