Thinking of you

Long time, no blogging! ;)

I enjoyed my break, and made some nice little pretties in the process - I'll show you them sometime, once I get caught up in the 73 drafts I have gathering dust in Blogger right now. It's ridonkuluos how much I have to share with you!

This post was quite an old draft - all the way from August, when CARDS asked me to be their featured designer for April '11 (a BIG thanks to CARDS!)
I was expecting lots of new CHA products and stamps to come in so I could make cards with new product for the issue, but wouldn't you know it, nothing arrived until the day after I submitted my cards. :P haha

I had to stamp onto the reverse of some patterned paper I had because I was all out of quality white cardstock - this substitute works really well, unless you need white cardstock for a base...than, not often.

Anyways, I have a lot to catch up on - hope to stop by all my friends blogs as soon as I can find the time.

Thank you for popping in! :)

  1. That card is so cute! Welcome back from your break! I too took a break but only because we moved in April and I had no computer, no internet, nothing for a whole month and so I just took the time to get settled in our new house. But I'm back now too, and hope to be posting some projects I'm starting soon!
