Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is well and life is being kind to you.
At last my world is starting to slow down into a more normal pace (well normal for me) after a very manic start to the year .. .. it has seemed like every time I have crossed something off that crafty "must do" list it has been replaced by another three items that are equally as important. Hence my non-appearance in blogland recently. Where is 2016 disappearing too!!?!
Anyway, I am pleased to say that I have manged to create one of my teeny tiny 3.5" square cards for sharing today.
Image and Sentiment: Stampin' Up Clear Stamp Set "Garden in Bloom"
Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads: Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Tangelo, Pear Tart, Pistachio and Tuxedo Black
Accent Beads - that have been lurking in my bead collection for years and never seem to reduce
My Trusty Sewing Machine
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
and something a bit naughty!!
Confession time .. .. .. I have been longing for a MISTI stamp tool for ages, and ages, and ages, and when I saw earlier this year that Tracy at Dies to Die For was accepting pre-orders for them, I decided I would order one ahead of my birthday later this month .. .. and put any birthday money I was lucky enough to receive towards it. Big birthdays hurt and deserve a big treat!!!
Well it arrived at the weekend but Mr Heart was clearly of the opinion that it shouldn't be used until my birthday. What torture. But I was a little bit naughty today and used it on this card with a layered Stampin' Up set. I couldn't wait to use it any longer .... and it is so fabby!!! I love it!!!
My theory is that if I have paid for it with my own money so far .. .. then it isn't a birthday present. It will only become a birthday present once I receive birthday pennies!! Does that sound right? Well it works for me. LOL!! I have put it all neatly back into the box now though so Mr Heart may never know.
My lovely Sis and I did another wedding fayre on Sunday and I still have everything to pack away! What happened to that promise to myself of being super organised .. .. clearly it went out of the window along with the new year resolution to make Christmas cards all year. I have made a grand total of one so far!!!
Hopefully it won't be too long before I am back with another creation.
