Cardabilities #24

Cardabilitie Time People!!! Here is sketch # 24

Here is my take on it:
Welp, we got a new camera and for some reason I don't know how to use it. Plus my Photoshop program is Ollllld and won't sinc with the camera so there was a lot of drama getting this baby shot. Finally my husb took care of the photo and editing which is why you see this retro shading/blurring mystical thing going on here. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining. I am just glad it actually got shot without me chucking the camera at the wall.
Ok, so January is over. I was worried it would draaaaag. it usually does, but to my delight it has gone by quite quickly and now we have a boy turning 4 and a boy turning 1! all in one week of each other. It should be fun!
Things here are busy, which is why you only see me twice a month. I really thought I was going to be able to keep up on it and did pretty good there even after the baby was born, but other stuff has taken over and my crafting has taken a back seat. It does feel good to craft, but all the other fires that need to be put out during the day prevent me from getting to it more. Anyway, I hope YOU get to craft as much as you like!

hope all is well with you in your neck of the woods.

Happy Birthday Scottie

Hey there! You know, I was missing you and all this crafty goodness so I thought I would stop by and share a card. One of my favorites that I have made in the last little bit:

I haven't gotten to do much crafting but when this baby went together I did smile and sigh and wish I could sleep in my stamp drawer. I lurve it.

Sweet dreams my little cherubs.

Cardabilities #21

Good day to you all out there! Well, another Cardabilities challenge has come around and now its time to share! Here is sketch #21:

Here is my take on it:
I got to use some new die cuts that have been waiting to get used. Lets be honest, with the holidays and back to back family visits plus just life happening, I have NOT been crafting. This was a good chance to get it going again. It was a lot of fun and I like how it turned out. I even got to send it out to a friend right away which always feels good. I don't like making a card and then putting in a pile of other cards that just collect dust. What about you??

I took some old tissue paper that I had sitting around and folded it up a few times and then cut my butterfly out of it. It really adds a lot of dimension and flounce to it! Other stamps are Papertrey Ink and the printed paper medallion is Cosmo Cricket.

This marks the middle of the longest month of the year, and it feels good to have it moving! It has been so bitter cold and of course you can't forget the two huge snow storms that showed us what they were made of. I think they were calling this last one a Snow Bomb? Well, what will they come up with next?

Anyway, what are you all up to this holiday weekend? We have been discussing Martin Luther King Jr. a lot this week and I feel so grateful for visionary people who help make this world a better place. What a wonderful person to celebrate this week.

Have a happy weekend!
