It's Back to Work I Go

Hi everyone,

I told you I would be back here more frequently now!! LOL! I started back to work today after having been off all summer. I love being able to get back and see how all of my co-workers are doing and have spent their summer. It always seems like we haven't been gone for too long. It was a busy day full of meetings and then I did have some time to work in my classroom, which is a BIG work in progress. I will post pictures after I have everything set up.

I just wanted to share a card that I made for my mister for his birthday back in June. It was only my my 3rd time working with a digi stamp, which I have really grown to love lately as my Cricut machines have been giving me some issues occasionally. The image is called Handy Harry from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  I have gotten a lot of the digital images that I've worked with from this site and I just LOVE them, they fit my personality and crafting style so well!

This sentiment is from the K. Andrew Designs set called Guy Talk.

I used my Crayola colored pencils to color this adorable guy in! (at the time I did not have any Promarkers yet!)

The paper is from my stash, I can't remember which stack I used but I do know that it DCWV.

This is the inside of the card. These sentiments are also from K. Andrew Designs.

Well, thanks for taking a moment to stop by my blog! It's another day of meetings and classroom prep for me tomorrow! I look forward to sharing some classroom pics with you next week. I'll be back this weekend to share some decorations that I put together for my cousin's wedding in July!

Until Next Time...

My oh my!!! It's been a LONG time since I've blogged! I had to take a hiatus from crafting and blogging because I just wasn't feeling it! I feel like that happened a few times over the past year, and I'm not sure why. Don't know if it's something that all crafters go through or just me. Nonetheless, I'm back and plan to do my best to blog at least once or twice or maybe even three times a week!!!

Although I was on a sort of hiatus, I did create a few things here and there over the past few months.

I decided that for my first official post back, I would share a super cute and fun card that I created this past weekend.

Isn't this just adorable!!! All of the paper used was from my scraps!
The tree and all of the images are from Stamps By Judith. The tree is called the Tree for All Seasons and I then used the Butterfly, Cupcake, and Star Stubbs that can be purchased separately. The images were all colored using my Letraset Promarkers, which I LOVE!!! (I'll blog about those another day!)

Here is the inside of the cards

All of the sentiments are from the following K. Andrew Designs Stamps: Splashtastic Summer, Winged Things, Coffee & Tea for You & Me

I'm not sure if you can tell, but I added some Stickles to all of the images for a little bit of bling!

And there you have it! Hope you like it! I am also using this for the Create Your Classroom Design Team Call!

Thanks for taking time to stop by and check out my creations! I promise to not take another hiatus for a long time!!!

Until Next Time...
