I know I've been gone for a very long time and I'd like to say I have an excuse but it's kinda lame. Here goes nothing:
So sometime in June/July I made a scrapbook album for my grandmother.
Then I made a very large model from a song. (see last post)
Then I started school.
Then I started up a vlogging YouTube channel (see http://www.youtube.com/user/sawthatday I'm Friday)
Then I made a bunch of small crafts (none all that interesting to share on a blog)
And through all of this I never cleaned up the craft corner once.
The moral of this story is it's really hard to craft when your table is half a foot deep in things you did five months ago.

So now that we have the "excuse" out of the way, above is a picture of a card I made once I cleaned up. Nothing too special but when you haven't really done anything in a long time it can be impressive.
To make the greenish blueish piece I squirted some alcohol ink on a craft sheet as I smooshed a piece of glossy card stock into it. Yes it is very simple. Then I stamped the tree and the "with love" in black Stazon. Then I just folded some pink card stock, rounded the corners, tied on some ribbon, put on the green piece and called it done.
I have some posts planned already so hopefully I can get in the trend of posting regularly.

  1. It is great to have you back in the blog world!
    I love the effect of the green ink with the simple black tree. I am going to be making christmas cards with some friends in a few weeks. You are welcome to join us if you still want to visit!
