Ok. I vowed I would not neglect my blog. I'm shocked (no hyperbole here -- I'm seriously shocked) by how much time has passed since my last posting. Ah well, chalk it up to summertime craziness, trips out of town, too much going on in general...
But I'm back. For now, at least. Once again, my creativity was sparked by great things happening to my favorite people.
First of all, my dear friend Candice landed a great new job for herself. I had to make her a congrats card that included one of our favorite embellishments... flock. (Fuzz, to the layperson.) You can't really see it in this photo, but the birdie that is perched on the birdhouse is fuzzy. It's pretty flockin' cool, if you ask me!
Then, my friend Teresa had her beautiful twin boys! Of course, being the obsessive stamper I am, I actually have twins-related stamps... and you know I had to break them out! Got to love Stampin' Up! for coming up with such a great niche stamp set (the retired "By Ones and By Twos").
Finally, my fabulous friend Lori landed a job that sounds just perfect for her -- and I am so thrilled for her. She deserves every success and I can't wait until she gives her notice at her current employer! As I was making the card, I imagined that the little puffs of smoke coming out of the Vespa were the dust she was leaving behind her as she soared ahead in her career!
Folks, keep the great news coming... these days it seems like it's the only thing that actually gets me to get my crafty thang going on!
