Coffee Jitters

Hello out there! Did you miss me? I hope not. I had several blog posts scheduled to post during my vacation and brief visit to CHA.

I was lucky enough to be able to attend CHA on the opening day on Tuesday. It was soooo fun! I feel like I could use at least another day to absorb all the sights and do all the make & takes. I took some photos but have not had time to edit them yet. I'll try to share some of the good ones with you soon.

On to my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff DT project. This was such a fun card to create. I went back to one of my favorite LSS images and combined it with my newest favorite color combo. I just love these patterned papers from October Afternoon. Aren't they fun? I don't know where I found that trim. I wish I could remember because I only had a little piece and now I want more.

(IRL the button is the same shade of green as the papers but for some reason the picture is not picking it up. )

Thank you for stopping by today. I am trying to get back into the swing of things after being away for so long. I am working on getting caught up on visiting blogs.

Please take a moment to visit the rest of the DT. Lindsay will have her weekly freebie posted on her blog.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
