Saturday night blogging

Saturday, April 2, 2011

So 10 yrs ago, I'd never thought I'd ever spend a Saturday night at home blogging about my hobby! How things change after marriage and kids :) but I am beyond BLESSED and wouldn't have it any other way.

Unfortunately, I had hoped to get some new projects started but that hasn't happened and probably won't for at least another several weeks. We have quite the busy weekends coming up in April so any new projects unfortunately will need to take a back seat for now. However, I thought I'd go ahead and share a card I'd recently made, and actually submitted to a card challenge. Sadly, it didn't win but I had a fantastic time making it anyway and I love how it turned out.

The majority of supplies used are from my #1 favorite SB manufacturer The hat pins are from Making Memories and the transparency from Hambly Screen Prints. I stamped on the circle die cut using the XO clear stamp set from Stampin' Up. But I think one of my most favorite elements on this card are the two little birds. They make me so happy!

Thanks for visiting today, friends!
