Hello Out There?

Hi everyone! I'll be surprised to know if anyone even reads this blog anymore, and I wouldn't blame you if you didn't. But anyhow, I haven't been posting because I haven't been creating for a while. I've been missing my crafting time so much, and I'm glad I finally got around to making this card.

A new paper store has moved in locally, so I thought I would drop by and check them out. It's a very small business and centered mostly around 12 x 12 papers for the scrapbook-type crafter. I did pick up a couple of stamps, and some papers, so hopefully I will be inspired to keep creating so I'll have something to post.

Stamps: Holiday Tree (Daisy Bucket Designs), Birthday Basics (PaperTrey Ink)
Card Stock: Soft Suede, Hopscotch Mat Pad (K & Company), Miscellaneous card stock from Eclectic Paperie
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Designer Buttons (SU), 1/2 inch Chantilly Crochet Lace (SU), Tan Scrapper's Floss (Karen Foster), Scallop Trim Border Punch (SU), Spellbinders Nestabilities,


Happy Thanksgiving to my friends from Canada, and Happy Columbus Day to my US friends!!

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll try not to be such a stranger.

Thanks for visiting!

Gee, I completely forgot about Columbus Day! Hi, Rose Ann! I'm here to tell you this card is even cuter in real life than it is on the screen, although your photograph depicts it very well. I just love those buttons and the pretty crochet lace. It's the perfect size. That's exciting about a new paper store in town. Sometimes it's nice to buy papers just a couple sheets at a time. You can get a lot of mileage out of those 12 x 12's!
