Merry Monday #78


We are having a bird themed challenge this week at Merry Monday.  Life has been a little crazy and I have taken a few weeks off from Merry Monday.  So happy to be back.  I can now finally get to my stamps in my craft room!  The bird themed challenge was the perfect opportunity to ink up the To You and Yours Stamp Set.  I have had this set in my collection for awhile now, but it had yet to see ink.  I colored my bird and holly with Copics and fussy cut them out.  I then layered them onto my card for more dimension.



My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.


I added a few layers to the inside to balance out the weight from the front of the card.

Freshly Made Sketches #106

Amy has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! The sketch was a perfect fit for me to break into the new to me Giddy Up papers by Carta Bella.  You all know I have a great fondness for western themed cards! Here is the original sketch design for you to create with:


 I have a ton of Thank You cards to send out.  I have been going through a huge transition in my life, which has left me with little time for blogging as of late.  Thanks so much to my friends both online and off that helped give me the courage to leave an abusive relationship.  I am forever grateful for your support.  I know many of you have sent e-mails inquiring about my absence from blogland.....I greatly appreciate your concern!  The blog community is an awesome place to be a part of!  I do hope to be back to blogging on a regular basis.  Moving my craft room and getting it set back up has been a daunting task....which is still a work in progress!  Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers, they are greatly appreciated.
