Long time no see!

Good morning, Peeps!

Wow, am I a bit late to wish you a Happy New Year, seeing as it's now MARCH! Erm, this is my first visit to my blog this year! I've been slack in that department, although I have been visiting blogs to see and read all about your crafty yumminess!

Anyhoo...I decided to POST a card I created last night - apologises though for my rubbish photo - it certainly has not captured the brightness of the finished card.  I was playing with die-cutting, trying to get ahead of myself by diecutting a batch of my word dies, one of which, was Mama Elephant's Happy word die.  As I was poking the negative parts out from the word I had the idea of trying to make something with the 'bit's - so after paying around I came up with this little creation.  I had such fun! The rain drops. flower, stem, leaves & butterfly/bug (whatever YOU think it looks like-hehe) were all from the HAPPY word die! To spice it all up, I used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour and shade plus the background of my panel - which incidentally, was used on the shiny side of Centura Pearl card stock.

I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things with posting more creations but bear with me - we have a new addition to our family, a ten week old puppy! Things have been interesting since having her for the past two weeks - she's a fast learner and an ever faster grower LOL

Here she is with our older dog!

Until next time,
