I'm back!!

Remember me?????

A little daunting to be back on the 'ol blog after such a long break... but I enjoyed a little card time this afternoon and remembered how AWESOME it felt...

There's a lot going on here - LOL - but I couldn't help wanting to use most of my stuff on ONE card... and hey, I'm allowed, right? hee, hee. Actually I still had this Verve set on my desk from the last time I was making cards so I just carried on with using it again.  :)

I love making cards of encouragement... or actually ANY card that's not for a specific reason (secretly not fond of making birthday cards...)  Here's the inside:

Forgot how much I loved & missed my dies!!  Bought some new paper, lace & ribbon today too and I can't wait to get crackin on that. 

So yeah... I'll be back.  ;)

Happy New Year

"One day at a time"... that's how I'm going to take 2013.  I love New Year's day for some reason... even more then New Years Eve actually.  It's like fresh fallen snow and leaving your footprints in whatever road you choose to take in this brand new year ahead. 

It's a new sheet... a clean slate... a new beginning. 

It seems like ages since I've made a card and so today I really didn't know where to begin.  I dug out my Verve stock and got lucky with sentiments for both the inside and out.  I've staggered the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares dies... didn't feel like being all neat and tidy.  Button die from Memory Box.

Here's the inside:

I haven`t announced this yet, but I`ve decided to step down from the amazing Stamping Bella design team.  I`ve had a change of priorities just recently and I`ve had to move crafting down the list a wee bit... I`m just needing more time to grow & develop in other areas of my life.  I have big ambitions for this coming year... but will not giving up stamping completely!!

Wishing you all things wonderful in 2013.
