I'm Baaaaaack....

Hello my peeps!  Goodness, I feel like it's been AGES since I've been able to post.  Mostly because it's been a while since I've been able to sit down and create anything.  I'm enjoying the time with Bear, but God help me I cannot WAIT until he's just a little bit older and can entertain himself with a toy or something for 5-10 minutes by himself. LOL

Anyway, I have some birthdays coming up, so I told (er, asked nicely) DH to watch Bear for a while so I could get some crafting done. That...didn't happen.  I ended up making dinner instead. (You can read all about that, if you want, in my next post.  I know...two posts in one day!  I think I'm trying to make up for being gone so long.)  So, after Bear when to sleep last night I was able to throw together one card.  Two more to go, but hopefully I'll get to them this week.

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my coworker's birthday.  Her b-day was actually on Saturday, but we're not celebrating at work until tomorrow (Tuesday) so everyone could be there.  Yay for leaving me a few extra days to create!  =D


Saturated Canary is one of my favorite digi companies.  Unfortunately, it's also one of my most recently found, which means I don't have a whole lot of her images...yet.  I'm working on it, though!  This image is Ava.  Isn't she a doll?  I just love all the layers in the outfit!  She was colored with Copics, then Crystal Effects (or whatever that glaze is called) was added to the balloon and eyes for extra shine.  The papers are from DCWV, the ribbons, pearls and flower are from my stash.  I added some Stickles to the flower because, hey, I can't make a card without Stickles. LOL  The inside says "A little cake and lots of fun. Happy Birthday!" then has a black and white stamp of a cupcake.  (Although it's on purple paper, so I guess it's a black and purple stamp. LOL)

Ok!  So, thanks for stopping by, and I swear I will try to get more creations posted.  It all depends on little man's schedule.  =D
