itchin'...

Monday, February 2, 2015

Hey, everyone!  So glad you could stop in today!  I've been itchin' to find some crafty time, itchin' to use some new crafty goodies, and itchin' to get back to this ole neglected blog!  Hope you hadn't forgotten me, but I wouldn't blame you if you did!!!;)  Look at the pretty little doily I've used here...

I know a lot of it's hidden away, but I just love it!  There are 3 more in the set from MFT...Mini Delicate Doilies...and yep, it's one of those things I've been itchin' to try out!  I used the current sketch from MFT for today's card...
This sketch called for more layers than I've been using the last several months, but it felt good to go back to my roots!!! (LOL)...


These are cleaner layers than the ones I used to serve up...way back when!  The big gold embossed 'LOVE U' is from MFT also, and I really like it, but I couldn't locate it...I think I've had it for a couple years now...maybe it's a thing of the past!:(  I used Paper Smooches' cute notebook die...another thing that's been on my wish list forEVER!!!  And you can see I used a doily as a stencil to add just a little more color and interest to that little die cut page.  I put it all together with some sweet Crate Paper!  Don't know how long it's been since I've linked up to a challenge!  Thanks MFT for getting my creative juices flowing!

I did need a 'thank you' after the holidays and immediately pulled out another 
Christmas treat for myself that I'd been admiring on everyone else's creations for quite some time…WPlus9's Pretty Peonies...
I used water and a brush and TH distress markers for my blossoms and paired them up with a pretty sentiment from PTI.
Now they're certainly not perfect,...but pretty enough, I thought.  The options are endless for the looks you can get from these, and I can't wait to play with them again!!!
OK…I must let you go, but again…am so happy you dropped in!
It's great to be blogging again!!!
