Back to "Business"

(Or so I hope). It seems I've been gone forever, and I think I almost have been. I find it extremely difficult to keep my usual "routine" with the family around...which includes stamping, blogging, and blurfing. Today the kids are going back to school, and my DH is back to work, so I'm hoping that I will be able to get here more often as well.

I hope you all had a nice holiday, and I'm looking forward to getting out "there", to comment on the beautiful creations you all have been making. I have been creating a few things here and there, but haven't taken have the time to photograph or blog them.

I do have a card to show you today. Smiley from millan.net This card was created using the October MFT Kit, and the Thinking of Hoo set that is included. I think this little owl is so cute, and I was happy to hear that the set itself is going to be released on January 6th. Isn't that great?

Stamps: Thinking of Hoo (My Favorite Things)
Card Stock: Papers from kit-Cream, Fossil Scalloped Note Cards, Butterfield (Memory Box), and Kraft (PTI)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Copic markers
Accessories: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Paper Piercer & Template, Nested Blossom (Spellbinders), Bloom Velvet Brad (Making Memories), Scotch Foam Tape, Tombo Multi Glue

Thanks for hanging in there with me during my extended break, and thank you for stopping by today!

Thanks for visiting!
