Long time no crafting, posting and, I'm embarrassed to say, very little commenting! I won't bore you with my many excuses, except to say: treadmill times...on high speed! Everything is fine, but January became one extraordinarily hectic month. As a result, I'm behind in everything, be that visiting my fabulous crafting friends, dealing with laundry, spending quality time with my husband (I've was gone for 10 days, 'working' in my home city where my family resides...) and so on. Hopefully, February will be a little tamer, a little calmer, a little slower...and a whole bunch more infused with creativity and designing time.
I returned from my 'marking blitz' late Friday evening and on Saturday, decided that Mr. Mojo needed a workout. Total cards: three. You're seeing two Valentine cards (although one is an 'oldie' created before my trip), destined for my niece and nephew's kindergarten and day care teachers. I have a total of 9 to make, so...need to get crackin' on hearts and love sentiments.
The first was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #221
Simple stenciling, negative die-cut and sentiment....quick and easy (Yayyy....)
The second (I actually made three of these pre-trip), inspired by STAMPlorations~January Sketch Challenge
is another QACAS (quick and CAS). The Valentine is die cut three times, with the top layer being shimmer paper. In real life..sparkly...
Hope the extreme simplicity of these is alright, because WOW...I found a number of challenges to enter:
STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge~Anything CAS Goes
Addicted to CAS Challenge #80~Red
My Time to Craft Challenge #134~Love is all Around
Simon Monday Challenge~Love is in the Air
Again, apologies galore for my lack of consistent visiting. I'm wearing my "Worst Commenter" crown with pride (NOT!) I subscribe to Feedly, so your lovely creations are seen and given some ‘thought bubble’ love which, I hope, you receive telepathically. As much as I want, deeply, to catch up on EVERY SINGLE card, the reality is: I simply can’t. My efforts would see me falling even further behind, so I’m hoping beyond hope that you’ll accept my ‘excuses’ and let me start with a fresh slate. I’ll make a more concerted effort to stay caught up but as we know: Life happens.
Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me; I treasure your visit!
