Well I am back and I was given an award...

I gave it to myself but I won't tell if you won't!  I am now the official recipient of the "Most Inconsistent Blogger Award".    I tell ya it was a lot of work to get this award... a case of Impetigo on my face, the return of C. Diff, helping my son move into a bigger apartment and hurting my back, and just plain not feeling too great.  I hope I can be more consistent in the future... I will try.  Thanks to all of you (okay... few of you) that have stuck with me and my sad little blog.

I do have a card for today.  I have been following Jennifer McGuire's Holiday Thinking Inking classes at the 2 Peas in a Bucket website.  I tried making a clear card and I think it turned out okay... the hardest part was creasing the acetate!  I definitely need to get some Hero Arts pre-folded acetate cards and soon!

I tried a new designer paper on this card... Kaisercraft.  I really like that it has punch out borders and tags with the pad.

Welcome back, Cindy - sounds like "life" got in your creativity time - LOL. Congrats on your award - I think we all go thru those "modes". Great looking card, by the way - now you need to start on your holiday cards, like all of us.

Cindy, that is so lovely! You will have to show me how to do that! I love the looks of the DP and the colors blow me away!

Welcome back my sweet little friend. Missed you, and miss seeing you, too!
