I Died and Fell off the Earth...But Now I'm Back!

Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of your fun?!

I had to get a full-time job, and it has seriously put a crimp in my crafting time, what with having to take care of my family, cooking, shopping, cleaning, laundry, etc... I am really having a difficult time getting up to my desk to create! But recently, my sweet husband helped me out with dinner duty so I was able to sneak up to do some card making.

Stampin' Up!'s 2016 Occasions catalog is my source of inspiration for this card. Take a look:

All supplies from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated:
Stamp sets: Carousel Birthday, Thoughtful Banners
Card stock: Peekaboo Peach, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral
Inks: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker, Blender Pens, Paper Snips, 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (from Sale-a-Bration), Clear Wink of Stella Brush, Paper Snips, Large Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals

In the close-up you can see the sparkle and shine from the Wink of Stella brush. And the gold shine on the ribbon is so pretty in person, but it just doesn't show up in the photograph.

Anyway....I hope you like my card. And I appreciate you all who have kept coming back to visit even though there hasn't been anything new to see. I hope to correct that in the near future!

Thanks again,
