Guess this means you're sorry...you're standin' at my door...

Hey y'all! Yes, I'm back! No, I did not get kidnapped by monkeys. Although sometimes it feels like it....anyway, it has just been busy. Being a single mom takes some getting used to, and I haven't really found my "groove" yet. Which means I either (a) run out of time to do everything I want to do, or (b) fall asleep the second I have any extra time. Right now it's just a process of figuring out a system that works for us. Not fun, but we'll get there!

Ok, so I do believe that I owe y'all an announcement of some blog candy winners!

Here's the results of the random drawing:

Happy Earth Day! LOL I was going to say it will be like Mr. Holland's Opus but someone beat me to it. This is amazing Shannan! I love it and I am sure he will too! So how about a joke that my 7 year old told me this morning. Where do all the pencils live?

Pencilvania ;) I hope you enjoyed it! Hugs!

God Bless you as well. Your title is one of my favorite songs. I always hoped that I would have someone special to sing it to me, and now thanks to you I do. Memories from high school are far too many for this blog response. Glad to see you are feeling better and back to creating. This is a perfect gift. Enjoy your experience.

Congrats on 3 years Shannan! So nice to see you blogging when you feel like it. Beautiful project that I'm sure will be appreciated. ((HUGS))


Congrats, ladies!! Email me your snail mail addy's (my address is on my sidebar), and I will send your goodies out this week!

Now...I actually have a card to share with you! I had a little kid-free time last night, and thought I'd play with some of the new releases from Verve. I had this flower colored from one of my tv-watching coloring sessions, so all I had to do was put it together and make a little card to go with it.


Step 1: Stamp large flower from One Person set twice in Memento Black on white cardstock.
Step 2: Stamp small flower from same set and color all 3 with Copic Markers.
Step 3: Cut out each image, removing the leaves from the 2nd large flower. Layer with foam dimensionals.
Step 4: Cut patterned paper (Vintage Patchwork from The Girls' Paperie) to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".
Step 5: Sponge edges with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, & Tea Dye Distress Inks.
Step 6: Cut mat from cream cardstock (PTI), adhere to patterned paper, and stitch around edges.
Step 7: Stamp sentiment from the same set in Versafine Onyx Black.
Step 8: Attach patterned panel to Kraft A2 card base with foam dimensionals.
Step 9: Adhere flower to top left side of patterned paper with foam dimensionals.
Step 10: Add Diamond Stickles to flower center.

Hope you like it...and hopefully I'll have more to share with you soon! Have a fabulous day!
