Happy New year(early)!

Yes I am alive! It had definately been a while, life has been very hectic. Hope everyone had a great Christmas. The reason I haven't posted in so long is because I haven't been able to make anything cause my stamping stuff has been packed. We have finally moved. Goodbye South Dakota, Ill miss you maybe, or at least my friends. After a very hectic time we have a place to live in Billings and we move in on monday yeah It kinda sucks when you don't have a place to land we have been staying with my parents for the last week and a half and im sure they are sick of us. So once we get all moved in and I get my stamping room set back up maybe I can get a card made with all of my new stampin up stuff that I haven't been able to use yet. I cant wait, untill then Happy New Year Everybody! I cant believe its 2009.

I am alive!

After a few weeks, I finally made a card, I have had alot of stressful and scary things happen in the last couple of weeks but the lord blessed my family and we were able to come through it. At the time of my last post I was so upset that I had actually packed all of my stamping stuff up and decided I wasn't going to even touch it till we moved in december. But my husband and my MIL convinced me that I shouldn't quit something that I love just because some bad things happened to me. Sorry I can't expound more but, I have been able to forget or at least try to forget everything and I was able to sit down yesterday and make this card for Jen Del Muro's Sketch for you to try. It was a cute sketch and I got to use a new stamps set I got three weeks ago and my new ski slope paper, and also some filigree brads that I got with my great rewards points from last quarter which I still cant believe I got and I doubt I will ever get again. So here is my card. I don't know how much I like it. Im thinking It might take me a little while to get some of my mojo back.

Paper: ski slope dsp, riding hood red, baja breeze, old olive, choc chip, whisper white.
Stamps: a flower for all seasons
Misc: filigree brads, pearl stickles, blender pen, word window punch, scallop punch.
