When I first started my blog, a little over a year ago, I never imagined that it would become such a big part of my life or that I would make so many wonderful friends from all over the world!!! Well, I want to wish all my crafty friends, who have stopped by over the last year, a very happy, creative and prosperous 2009!! I would also like to say a very heartfelt thank you for all you kind and supportive comments that you have left me over the past year! I truly appreciate each and every one them!!!
I was disappointed that I didn't get a change to post this yesterday but I ended up in bed, for pretty much the whole day, with yet another migraine! I have had a rough few days with one migraine after another...it must be the low barometric pressure that is doing it to me,uugghh!
Well, I am feeling a little better today, (touch wood) so, I finally did a little stampin' and made this card!
I stamped Standing Fall Tilda on Georgia Pacific paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured her with Copics and Twinkling H2Os. I cut the image out with my Label Two Nesties and inked around the edges with a Tim Hotlz ink applicator and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. I stamped the stitching in Brushed Corduroy too with clear stamps by Kelly Panacci.
The 6x6 card base is made from Bazzill Basics White Swiss Dots cardstock and the patterned paper is BasicGrey Sultry. I have been dieing to team up this Tilda with the fab Creative Cafe Felt flower that I have had in my stash forever. I stitched around the edges of the pink felt flower with white embroidery floss and added the BG Button for the centre. The sentiment is made with a Melissa Frances and a Quickutz rub-on and applied to the QK 2x2 die. Finally, I added some Sugared fibres to finish it all off!
Here is a pic of the Christmas presents that I got from Chris and the kids! I just love all my crafting pressies and of course my, Tolberone, gotta have that in my stocking...it's a tradition (which is all gone already...yum-o! I think that is a tradition too,lol!!!)
Dana and I did a little boxing day shopping over the holidays and I got two more ScrapOnizers for 50% off at Stamping Bella. This time I wanted to organize my embellies...love it! I also, got a ribbon organizer too for only $10...now how can you beat that!!! I love Stamping Bella it is a tiny store but it is just chalked full of all the things I love!!!
Here is my Tote-Ally Cool tote stuffed full of all my tools and supplies! It is perfect!!! Now all the stuff that was strewn all over my table and taking up space , is neatly organized in one spot and I just give it a little spin to quickly find what I need!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card and all my new organizational goodies. Now that I have things organized, I just hope I can keep it this way, for a little while, anyways!!!!
