Well. I kinda forgot about ya, blog.
I don’t have much to say about the time while I fell off the face of the earth. Work. Teaching. Busy.
Moving on. 🙂
You know how sometimes you just get in a crafting funk and can’t really think of a creative idea to save your life? I’ve been there for quite a while. It just so happens that a sweet church/crafty friend decided to purge a TON of her supplies and goodies and so I got loads of cardstock, dies, and inks. And somehow that little act of kindness woke my foggy craft brain up. ❤️ Now I am in the “make all the things” mode. And I’ve missed it all so much.
I am going to get back to trying my hand at different challenges and posting here more. I’ve added the instagram feed doo-dad on the side so that you can keep up with me, even when I’m a slacker blogger.
I colored these sweet images from the December Simon Says Stamp card kit with my copic markers. This first card was a take on the MFT sketch #324.
This card I put in the mail for my Aunt. She always signs her cards from her and all her sweet pets. Since Lucy and I claim our stray kitties at this point, I had to include them. They really are black cats, but the grey suits them well. They stay outside, but sure know to come when they are called. Lol!
I’ve been currently addicted to the Lawn Fawn scalloped pop up box card. I made one for a friend of mine with the Lawn Fawn Happy Howlidays stamp set. Made one of the puppers from the LF set Critters at the Dog Park look like his dog. I have more pictures on Insta, but here is one from before I mailed it.
had to text me to ask how to open it, but he loved it. 🙂
When I colored all those adorable pups, I made enough for several cards. So naturally, I made another.
These used the plaid background stamp from Concord & 9th on the outside. Love.
This one isn’t quite as full as the one for my friend, but I love it just the same. I could make puppy pop-up cards all day!! Lol!
In my current quest to find some challenges, I ran across a new one today that this card fits perfectly. Hello!
The Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog is new to me… but looks like a lot of fun!
I chose the March 2013 theme of Animals.
I look forward to checking in with this challenge in the future and playing along.
Speaking of new places to visit, I found Challenges for Days which lists lots of challenge blogs. I’m a little overwhelmed, but excited to have a place to quickly find a challenge. I will have to see if I can play along with any other challenges over Christmas break.
I’ll see you soon!
