Long time.....no see....or hear....or crafts

It has been so long since I have posted anything on this blog! I have to admit that I went through a dry spell. "They" say that every artist goes through one but my was especially long.  I tried to make cards and what nots recently and ended up in the trash because it wasn't "perfect". But what is perfect anyway? I looked at my past scrapbooking and cardmaking magazines for inspiration.  I decided to go to my craft and sit there, think, and make something. I promised myself that I wouldn't throw away anything that I made and I would post pictures....

The first card is a card lift from "Creating Keepsakes" magazine. I can't tell you the month/year of the issue because I tear my pages out of the magazine and put them in a binder. The papers are DCWV and the "You're beautiful inside and out" stamp is from....I don't know....it was in my "friends" stamp bin. I used TH distressing inks and I used my polka dot cuttlebug folder for the embossing. I also used fiskars scallopped edge punch And a brown bow for the finishing touch
The card is a 9x4 inch card and will fit in a legal size 10 envelope.

The next card is a smaller A2 size card (4.25x5.50) I used TH distressing inks, Cuttlebug folder (polka dot), DCWV paper (the friends panel) I used the Cricut "lacy labels" for the frame in the back. The same stamp for my stamp bin and a pink bow on the side for an added touch.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I can hear your comments. I am always encouraged by them but besides, a girl loves to feel love, ya know~

Until next craft
