Happy New Year!

Whew! Time to dust this place out and clean out all of the cobwebs! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with those you love. This past month has been so busy...thus my lack of posts to this little blog of mine. Hopefully with the holidays behind us and the kiddos heading back to school in a few days I'll be giving this blog a lot more love!

So how about I start off the new year with a brand new card that I made just the other day? Used a Studio Calico kit for this and the Classic Scallop Spellbinders die template. The wet and chilly weather that we have been experiencing here has me dreaming of Spring and flowers and since those two things are still a long while away, flowers of the paper sort will just have to do!

Love that stamped background on the top portion of the card. So many different possibiliites with that! I have another card to show you in another post that uses that stamp again!

May 2012 be the best year yet for all of us!!!! Cheers!

Let it snow!!!!

   Wow! So sorry for the long departure! I had a booth at our school bazaar last week and I have been super busy making all sorts of crafty goodness for it. Then it was over and the Christmas hoopla began, feeling a bit more caught up now. Still have a bare tree waiting for some attention and some gifts to purchase, but I at least feel like I can breathe a bit.

   Those of you that know me, know I LOVE snow and wish we had WAY more of it in my neck of the woods. Unfortunately, we get a few flakes a year...which never really amounts to much other than a media frenzy. So, I pacify myself with crafty things pertaining to snow!

   Today I have a little banner to share with you. I started with the snowflake album and used just three of the pages (leaving me more to use later). Combine that with Scor-Tape and glitter and oooh la la. Shiny, white and bright!

The centerpiece was made using Spellbinder Picot Edge Circles, Create-a-flake 3 and Technique Tuesday stamps. All links below!
