Time flies.....

......I can't believe I haven't posted in sooooooo... long. To tell the truth, I've been in kind of a slump and haven't been making much crafty stuff at all. I tried, but my mojo just wasn't there and most of my attempted cards ended up in the trash. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!I do have a couple that turned out. First one is a Valentine card with a cute little hedgehog stamp from Penny Black (Thanks Maura, for letting me stamp a few). I forgot who makes the paper, but I found it at my LSS and thought it was so cute. Hedgie was colored in with Prismas and Gamsol and I used my nestability dies to cut and layer the heart. The brown scallopped border is a Martha Stewart punch.

Next up a card I made with the Blooming Button Bits set from Papertreyink, which I borrowed from my SIL (Thanks Cathy!). I used October Afternoon paper (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it) and stamped the flower image with aqua mist ink from PTI. Cut out the image with a classic round nestie and backed it with a scallop flower nestie. Again, the border punch is Martha Stewart. I did stamp an extra flower, cut it out and pop dotted it on the front for some added dimmension. A little ribbon and some buttons and twine and, Voila, a card that actually didn't end up in the trash.

And one more....
This one I actually planned to enter at Papertreyink on Nicole's blog for the emboss resist challenge she was having. Well, I made the card and got all done and then my stupid computer was acting all weird and kept freezing up on me. So, no entering the contest for me, but here is the card...
All stamps are from PTI (Warm Happines, Text Style 2).

Well, that is it for now. I might be back later with some pics of some fabric and felt barrettes I have been working on.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!


  1. Anette,

    I think your mojo is back with a bang!! I love all three of your cards. I think the October Afternoon one is my favorite because I love the paper. Although - as usual, your eye for color and adding those spcial touches makes this card divine! It makes me want to go buy a dozen more sheets of the paper and CASE your card (Actually mass produce it!!)!! Too bad your computer got in the way of the PTI challenge. It's a great card and very different than others I saw. Glad you are back and hope that trash stays empty!!

  2. Love these bright, cheery cards! That patterned paper matches your Blooming Button Bits perfectly!!

  3. Love that second card. I think your scalloped flower nestie is awesome behind the image!

  4. Your cards are LOVELY!
    Have a WONDERFUL day!

  5. Love the coffee card and that gingham ribbon is to die for!
