Getting Crafty Again

for a friend














Hey, y’all! It’s been a while. A long, long while. So much has gone on in the last several months in my life, and it’s been fun and challenging and exhausting, and I’ve missed two things sosososososo much. Creating and my crafty friends. I’ve missed that alotalotalot.

This challenge brings all that back to my life.  And you know what? It feels *good* to know that every two weeks, I will make time for ME to make something fun to share.  And another thing I’ve missed? Beate being a taskmaster, making me be creative. I love her for talking me into this and knowing just what I need to feel like me again. 🙂

This little vintage-y card is made of things dug out of my stash. A little doily from a recent order I received from Erin at Vintage Glam, some Prima flowers and bling, 7 gypsies paper, and stamps and coordinating dies from My Favorite Things. I’m a little bit a whole lot in love with the finished card.

Thanks for coming by and visiting again!  Please make sure to visit the Crafty Friends blog and follow along – we’ll be back every two weeks with a new challenge to share with you!

    I was SO GLAD to see this!!! I’m no longer on Facebook and have completely lost touch with you. I’d even thought about calling you but didn’t know if you still had the same number. Love your card – so beautiful and elegant. I will look forward to seeing something from you every two weeks!! Love you, girl.

    This is simply beautiful, Jen. The typewriter, pearls, stitching all work so well together on your vintage card. I’m so excited to be in the Crafty Friends challenge with you. I have loved your work from SCS and am glad to have had the privilege to meet you a couple of years ago as a CHA newbie :).
