Hi all!! WOW! Did NOT mean to take such a long break, but we finally got my whole craft room moved to the other space and all set up and I am soooooooo excited!!!!! I just love my new creative space and I have just made some Christmas cards at my brand new work desk!! I have just a few finishing touches to do and it will be PERFECT!! And, then I will post some pics of the new space. But, I was so happy to have completed some cards that I wanted to share one that I made last night. The lighting was NOT the best, but I love this card!! It is made with the single stamp reindeer at the very back of the catty and I truly think it is my absolute fave Christmas stamp - and I really enjoy playing with lots of the others!! I also used some of the Christmas specialty paper that feels like flock and it just makes the card look warm and rich!! And, of course I could not resist adding some bling so I used Dazzling Diamonds on the antlers and chunky glitter for the snow! So much fun - I CANNOT wait to play more tonight when I get home from work - who needs sleep???LOL!!!! I hope you are all doing well, I sure do miss you all!! I actually think I have time to blurf again now that the room is done so I plan on doing some catching up this week. Thanks for stopping by - MWAH to you!!!!

As you enjoy this day off from work or school, or are just spending time at home, please take time today to remember those who have sacrificed all for our country in order for us to enjoy the freedoms we have today. And, remember those who are still serving and are far from loved ones right now! To all my brothers and sisters in uniform - I salute you!

Hi all!!! Whooohooo!! I am BACK and even have a card to share today!! And, I was checking out my counter and saw that I just went over 100, 000 hits - that is sooooo AWESOME!! Thanks to all of YOU - that is what makes me keep blogging!! I have met sooo many wonderful people and I have to say, it brightens my day to read all the comments, and visit all of you as well!! At the end of this month I will have been blogging for two years - I cannot believe that!! So, now that I have hit such a GREAT milestone, I will have to decide what fun blog candy to have in celebration - I will put my thinking cap on and figure it out and let you all know by Friday *wink* But, for now, I do have a card to share - it's a simple card but I love how it turned out! It's using one of my fave sets called Cheep Talk - I just love the birdies, they are sooo cute!! And, I have to say, I am not a huge fan of purple but I do love the different shades here with that gorgeous designer series paper called Cottage Wall - it's just so soft and pretty, it makes me smile!! This is one of the cards I did for a workshop recently and they really enjoyed making this one too!! I hope to be back to stamping regularly again now that I am feeling more like myself - I tell ya, that virus is really something - I am still recovering and have not been able to shake the cough and congestion that goes along with it. But, at least I am able to get back into a routine, which makes me happy!! I am off to blog hop a little before I hit the office, and I will be back tomorrow to share another fun project!! I hope you all have a FABULOUS day!!!
