Finally a card to post!!!!!!!!!!

This first card was inspired by watching a tutorial video over at http://courtbaker.blogspot.com/ .  The blog is "Practicing creativity by Courtney" and Courtney has made a "Petal Flower Tutorial" video that is really great - check it out.

 The flower was made per the tutorial and the paper for it was a 6x6 piece I received, along with a bunch of other awsome candy, from Cathy over at http://ellieskeeperscreations.blogspot.com/ . The background paper is from the DCWV glitter Sweet Stack, the sentiment is from a stamp set by Heidi Grace - Wild Daisy Rd. The rest of the things are misc. from my stash.
I guess considering how rusty and out of practice I am on card making, I feel ok with how this turned out - I've definitely made worse. LOL

Blessings & Praises:
We all seem to be over our recent bout with a stomach virus.
I made a card and it was so much fun.

A belated "Whoo-hoo & Thank You"!

Back in December, I was the fortunate winner of the BBTB blog hop candy over at Enfys' blog, "Going Buggy".  I did alot of whoo-hooing and happy dancing and of course contacted Enfys to thank her and let her know my addy.  What I failed to do was let you all know about the awsome goodies.  They included a stack of color box chalk inks in blue tones, a set of rub on alphas, a pack of rain dots and some making memories metal frames - all yummy.  My absolute favorite though was the old fashioned phone card she made for the blog hop and then sent on to me.

I know you can't help but agree - it's just so cute!!!!!!     Thanks again Enfys.
If you all don't already know Enfys, stop by her blog and say "hi" - you won't be disappointed.  http://going-buggy.blogspot.com/

I'm Back!

It's been a long time - life has been kind of wild and crazy, actually still is, but decided to give this another try regardless.  My girls are doing a better job of getting some crafting time in than I am.  My oldest, soon to be 11, now has her own blog.  We had lots of fun setting it up together during Christmas break.  If you get a chance, she'd love for you to stop by and say "hi".  http://kaylaskrazykrafts.blogspot.com/ 
My youngest, now 7 (my baby is growing up fast), has made a crafty poster that I told her I would post on my blog. She told me what she wanted it to say and I wrote it for her.  She would be thrilled if anyone has a chance to comment.
I've not been able to complete anything to post myself but I havn't given up hope. :)
