I'm Back!

I hope to be back to posting regularly again...for those of you who don't know I had my daughter on March 24th and have been taking time to adjust to life with a newborn and 2 year old. It's been fun:) I am very much starting to miss my crafting time though, so I hope to be back at it. Thankfully I have the best husband who supports my hobby and gives me time to do it. Here are a few cards I made right before baby came.This one uses PTI Everyday Blessings paper. The flowers are cut from my Cuttlebug die and the thank you stamp is from Inkadinkado. The edge is done with a Martha Stewart punch. I used Palette Burnt Umber ink.
This was the first time I'd used the grasshopper from Green Thumb (PTI) and it's so cute! The sentiment is also from Green Thumb. The top polka dot background is from Polka Dot Basics (PTI) and the dotted edging along the ribbon is from Faux Ribbon (PTI). The little leaf that is in each of the scallops on the square is a small stamp from the square Borders and Corners set (PTI) The bottom part is embossed with Swiss Dot embossing folder.

This card was fun to make. I used my Beloved Blossoms set (CTMH) to make all the patterned paper. The Thank You sentiment is from Mixed Messages (PTI). I used my Scor-Pal to emboss the border on the card. The middle flower is popped up on foam adhesive.

Thanks for looking and commenting! It means alot:)
