I made a card! I have missed being able to go in my craft room and just play for the sake of playing. This is a virtual birthday card for a lovely blog friend, Chrissie. Happy Birthday!!!
My sweet blog friend, Kristie, stamped and sent this Magnolia image for me. This is a well-traveled cupcake! All the way to the U.S. from the land down under. Kristie also totally enabled me to buy this ribbon she used on her card here. I was also inspired by blog friend Leslie, who was showing some of her lovely cross-stitch pictures on her blog here.

I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch Week #96. I also was inspired by Use It challenge #20. Here are the Use It guidelines:
1. An unusual item (my DMC floss). I have not used this floss in years; 20+ years ago I was into teddy bears. I cross-stitched pictures, pillows, etc. with brown teddy bears. They are all stashed in a closet somewhere...
2. One stamp (check that off!)
3. One die cut or embellishment
I started this right before I became pregnant, and finished in time for the girls' fourth birthday :)
