Long time

...no see!

I'm just popping in with an old CARDS February '12 pub, and a bit of news.

First, the card; I had accidentally messed up this yellow batch of ribbon, but I had to stick it somewhere. This card ended up being the victim....this is one of those cards that I have to tell myself not to get frustrated with because it's not turning out perfect. Cardmaking is supposed to be done for the fun of it, and while I don't really care how this card turned out, I did have fun thinking 'this cards not perfect...and I don't care!' ;)

Funny thing: my younger sister always likes the cards that I'm not perfectly satisfied with. This works out for the benefit of both parties - she gets the unloved card, and I get the unloved card out of my way!

Had to have my glitter. ;)

The ugly yellow ribbon, along with some fresh green.

So, the tad of news; I've just started my sophomore year at Franciscan University of Stuebenville, and I am again playing for their volleyball team. Between school, home and volleyball, I don't have a whole lot of time for blogging or even making cards. As a fair warning, the posting on this old blogaroo with be sporadic at best (as if you haven't already seen that ;)), so, I'll see ya when I see ya!

God bless!

I promised you a week of Moxie World Fabness, but with summer winding down early for me due to volleyball, I got behind on some things, including this ol' blogeroo.

So, I won't be able to get up the last couple Moxie Fab World challenges up here, but I will upload them to my Flickr stream.
Meanwhile, a card for the Birthday Party Invitation Challenge in the Moxie Fab World...

Just quickly put this together using some more new-to-me product - the thing that took the longest (aside from waiting for the Glossy Accents on the balloons to dry) was figuring out where to place the darn stars and what color they should be! As they say, it's all in the details. ;)

Thanks for stopping in today and (maybe?) see you in a week!
God bless!

Project Thursday {scattered journey}

I'm over at the Precious Remembrance blog today, sharing a fun collage-y style card using the new Journey stamp set along with Positive Thoughts.

I stuffed the mini glassine bag with sequins, than added some more outside of it - I'm just gonna say the scatteredness of it all just completes the sentiment. ;)
The cute film strip stamp provides a nice backdrop for all the craziness, and the little ink splatter image from Positive Thoughts adds a little more neutral. ;)
Oh, and in case some of you were wondering what you would use this sentiment/card for (as I wondered at first), I realized it is a perfect card for grads!

Thanks for stopping in with me today and God bless!
