Thank You

I had a little bit of time today to get out my supplies and play, yay!! I really needed it too, what a stressful few weeks it has been, glad to sit down and make something happy....this is white on white with tidbits of color:

Thank You

It was hard to split with a doily and only use a tiny scrap piece of it but thought it was happy looking in the upper right corner there. :) I used a very delicate piece of lace at the bottom for a frilly look. Have a great day everyone!

Dearest Friend

Hello everyone. Feeling crafty today and made a card, a small one, it is a 4 x 3.5.  Still love clean and precise lines on my designs but thought I'd be a bit abstract today:

Dearest Friend

It's small and packed with a lot of goodies.  I used some fabric letters, strung my twine through each letter, scrunched it a little and tied a knot at both ends.  Threw on some things I love and I'm done. So fun!

You make me so happy!

A soft and delicate card today for a special friend.....I used a pre-made, scalloped cut cardstock from American Crafts, don't you love the convenience of that sometimes?

You make me so happy

At first, I was going to leave it that rustic pink/brown/kraft look then I decided to throw in the punch of green. I liked how it worked out.

That's it, I'm off and running. See you later.

I'm back.....

A brand new, little girly card I made today, with a color scheme of yummy pinks and yellows:

Love you lots

Boy, I usually don't write too much and have been keeping my posts short and sweet as to not bore you, but today I feel like writing......I have always loved to write, you know.  It's always been one of my many passions.  So anyhow, for a while, my mojo went away, and for those of you who recall, I had my arm issues last year - and it seemed like after that episode, even after my arm was stronger again, I had sort of 'lost' a desire to craft.......GASP - imagine that! Coupled with busy times for me and my family, an ever changing lifestyle and some new challenges that I have kept private for a while......the desire to craft withered away into the dark distance and I was so busy doing anything but designing.

But.....I miss it.....miss it terribly and I feel I was at my very best, my strongest, mentally......when I did what I loved doing...designing cards and making my scrap pages.  So I've recently had a resurgence for the art once again.......hopefully, starting fresh and clean with the new school year starting, I have to say I think, with a fair amount of certainty.....that Tif is back.....hope you enjoy the card.

Have a fantastic week!
