Second verse, same as the first...

Today's cards are based on the card in my last post. When i got in my craft room this morning, new ideas just weren't coming, so i decided to follow Dana's suggestion and make more of these. i also found a scrap of this paper with the company's name, in case anyone was interested. This PP is by Me and My Big Ideas.

This one is my favorite of the two.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Back to school and one new card...

Hi, everyone! i have been super busy lately and haven't been able to get on here, plus my computer seems to work when it wants to, so that's posed a problem! Part of my busy schedule recently has included getting Z. ready for the first day of school - he's in second grade now! Today was the big day, and he came home with a smile on his face, so that's good. With him back in school, i'll get a lot more done during the day, and i may actually have time to step in my craft room again!

Today's card was made for my aunt-in-law's wedding. The wedding ceremony was a very casual affair, so i made a card to reflect that. Very simple, but i like it. This is the only new thing i've made in a few weeks! No ingredients this time - i forgot who made the PP and the rest of the stuff is from my stash. i can tell you that the sentiment is from Inkadinkado and the ink is Ranger Archival.
Here's the card with its envelope.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone is doing well!

Well, no new art to show today, so i thought i'd share an old favorite. Some of you have already seen this, but it will be new to others. This is one of my favorite cards to come out of my little craft room.

i really like the envie with this one. i made it using PP so it would match the card perfectly. Oh, and this pic is smaller because i uploaded it using flickr. i haven't reinstalled my photos to our computer since the crash.

Ingredients: CS - stash; PP - Rob and Bob Studio; stamps - Rhonna Farrer's Swirls V:1, Brenda Walton's Garden Words, Limited Edition; ink - Ranger Archival, Ink It Up; ribbon - Offray; eyelet - MM; pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a wonderful day! i know i will - my mom's keeping Zach overnight, so i will get a much-needed break! :) Woo-hoo! It's like a miniature vacation. i plan to spend quality time with Paul, maybe go out to eat, and i'm going to burn the midnight oil in my craft room. But the best part? Peace and quiet! My child talks incessantly, and as much as i love the little stinker, i will be grateful for the sounds of silence...

Computer drama, and sadly, artless.

i just wanted to let everyone know i am suffering some computer issues lately and might not be able to log on as often. About a week ago, our computer crashed, and we lost all files. i had two months' worth of photos disappear that i hadn't gotten around to burning yet. i hate losing photos. Sometimes i miss my old Canon 35 MM. Anyway, our computer still seems to be having some problems, so i'm having a hard time doing what i need to do.
i have no new art to show. :( i've been too busy to even step into my craft room for a week. i feel the need, though, for something creative, made by my own two hands, so hopefully tomorrow i can get some craft-therapy.
Hope all of you are well! Thanks for visiting!
