I Miss My Blogger Friends!

Good Morning and a happy Wednesday to all of you.  I must first apologize for not coming around and visiting everyone this past month.  It's been a bit of a rough one for me.  I've been overwhelmed with trying to keep up and it just hasn't happened.  Thank you to those of you that check in on me on a regular basis, I so appreciate that and love to read what you leave for me.  I'm optimistic that the next month is going to be a great one.  I believe in the power of positive thinking and now I just need to put it to use.  My crafting is and always has been my outlet and I'm going to focus on it and hope that I can overcome some other things going on. 


So..... for today I have a Kraftin Kimmie Birthday card to share with you.  This is the quirky "Charlotte", which is also my sis's name so all the better!  I've used Cosmo Cricket papers to follow Kimmie's sketch this week.  I added some gingham checked ribbon from Pizazz Aplenty.  I didn't think I'd use this color but it matched perfectly.  I finished it off with a birthday sentiment and a little decoration on the inside. 



I'm off to find some inspiration from my favorite bloggers now.  In celebration of my new blog design I am getting things ready to post a blog candy this weekend.  So make a note to check back!

Challenges entered:
Do you stack up - Ribbons
Stamp Something - Something funky (Charlotte and her dolls are always funky!)
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Stripes and dots
Totally gorjuss - Checks/Checkerboards

Warm Hugs

  6. THis image is a great one when we have days like this. I have a sentiment stamp that I use with this image that says" I'm beginning to fear that there's no such thing as PMS and this is just my real personality."
    Such a cute card!

  14. Great card Jen! Love the color combo! Sorry it has been a down month for you! So many of us have been hit hard lately. It is so nice we have an outlet! I recently read someone's blog that she said her husband mentioned. "I don't mind you crafting it is cheaper than therapy" We all know that is probably not true, but it is therapy!
