My poor abandoned blog...

Well, I know I don't have many "followers" BUT just wanted to say hello and let whoever checks in from time to time know that I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth! The last couple of months of my pregnancy were hectic as there were a lot of changes going on with our household. My husband got promoted and took a position a couple of hours away from "home". He was living out of a hotel during his work week and we visited when we could. It was a bit much with me staying home with my teenage son and our two year old but I survived! We are now all together, renting a house in between his new store and my parents' house so things are going well. Our baby GIRL who remained sexless throughout my pregnancy (LOL!!!) was born on Friday, July 23rd at 7:42 am and weighed a whopping 9 lb. 11 oz.!!! It's hard to believe she'll already be 6 weeks this Friday. Though, my oldest son just started HIGH SCHOOL yesterday. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was in high school but this year was my 15 year reunion. It's just crazy how time flies!!! I won't be posting any artwork for a while since all of my stamps and scrapbooking stuff is packed from our move and I'm obviously tied up with a newborn and my two year old but I will try to pop on occasionally and post some pictures and eventually get back to crafting. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer. I myself am looking forward to fall, my absolute favorite season!

Have a Happy Day!

We started getting some nicer weather here in New Hampshire a month or so ago so I made this spring card. I really love the cloud background paper! I stamped the sun onto velvet paper and cut the grassy hills out of felt. I originally stamped the phrase directly on the felt but it came out fuzzy so I added the ribbon and layered the sentiment on top. I love when you are able to fix your booboos and it looks intentional :) The tree, well, it got blinged out! HAHA Typical for me I guess. What'd we ever do without all those little gems??? Hope you all have a happy day!!!

Oops, 1 more Valentine card!

For this card, I embossed the roses with my Cuttlebug on white velvet paper. I added the velvet leaves, punched out little hearts and handwrote the numbers to go with the "How do I love thee..." quote from one of my Technique Tuesday sets. Actually, I think it was from one of my friend Melanie's sets. We both have so many! HAHA This is one of those cards that isn't really my style, if I even really have one! I kept looking at it thinking "I made that?!" Does that ever happen to any of you?

Valentine cards... in April??? LOL

Gosh, I am so bad!!! I always have good intentions but somehow I just don't manage to get on here and update my blog. A lot probably has to do with the fact that I don't get to play as much as I would like to. Here are a few Valentine cards that I actually did make before the holiday :)
