Christmas Cards

Hi there!

I haven't been on in awhile but I received an order to make some Christmas cards so I figured this is as good a time as any to take some pics of them and say hi to everyone who still stops by my blog.

I worked on these cards yesterday and realized that while I'm not as obsessed with making them as I once was, my tastes have changed as well. The cards I enjoyed making 2 years ago are not the ones I would really like making now. I like simpler ones now and I'm sure that the ones I created yesterday shows that.

All of the cards I made are for kids. I have 2 more to finish and I will post those when they are done.

It's Been Awhile...

Well, it's been awhile since I've posted anything because honestly, I just wasn't into card making like I was. I'm feeling the card making "itch" returning so it won't be long 'till I post some more.

I hope everyone is doing well especially in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. I live in Upstate NY and we were extremely lucky not to get any damage but 200 short miles south of here there was complete devastation. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that was affected.

I'll be back soon.

My 2nd card for tonight is a Mother's Day card I made for my mother-in-law. I enjoyed making this (any excuse to use my Copics!) since I've been looking forward to using the hydrangea digi stamp for awhile.


Stamp: hydrangea freebie drawing I've had for a few years. There was no artist associated with it when I looked.
Paper: Memory Box and scrap
Misc: Copics
I made two Mother's Day cards. One for my mother and one for my mother-in-law. The one for my mother is the one below and I've decided to also submit it to the Cr84fn Color Challenge #53. This is the first time I've submitted a card to one of their challenges but it was lots of fun to make and the site seems great! 

Stamp: Hero Arts
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Georgia-Pacific card stock, Memory Box, scrap
Misc: sentiment I typed on my computer, Copics, ribbon and buttons

Finally, A Card

Well, it's been a long time but I finally have a card to post. I also did quite a few more of the bakery signs I was working on but didn't get a chance to take pics of them. But, I've got one of this card. I hope you like it.

Paper: Georgia Pacific cardstock and stash
Image: a digi I found online. I'm sorry to say I don't know who the artist is and couldn't find it.
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Misc: Copic Markers

Computers and Other Stuff

Wow, I've been without a computer back and forth for awhile. Well, it's a long story but I sold my Mac Mini in January, ordered a refurbished MacBook Pro, that didn't work. Then I ordered another one and that didn't work. Finally, this week I have one. It's an awesome 2009 MacBook Pro that so far I'm very happy with. So, that means that I can print out the digital stuff I need for the bakery signs and finally get working on them. I'm also on vacation this coming week so that will give me time.

So, I'm going to post some more stuff soon. Don't think I've forgotten!

I'll Be Back!

Hi everyone!

I am still around and I'll be starting new bakery signs this week and get them posted soon. Life has been busy and I've let papercrafting take a back seat but I'll be back soon.

I hope you are well.
