I'm Baaaaaack & BasicGrey Wisteria



We are back home safe and sound from our family beach trip. It is always so much fun to be with dh's cousins, aunts & uncles, but great to be home and in our own beds too :)

I have suffered P.P.W. and B.F.W. (patterned paper withdrawal and blog friend withdrawal). I have not been to visit ANY blogs in several days. Please be patient; I will come by to "see" you soon! I am now caught up on my laundry, bills, and (most) e-mails. I still have some phone calls to return. Today I made 5 cards (two of the top card and 3 of the bottom card.) They are now ready to send, so I am now caught up on thank you notes and get well cards. Tomorrow I hope to make birthday cards and be caught up on those.

Tomorrow I will post a project for Cuttlebug Challenge #41, so please come back in the morning :)

**Both cards came from a BG card kit purchased at 7 Kids College Fund (click on the icon on my right hand side bar to go shopping!) I have found they have the cheapest price even after shipping if I take into account my time and gas money to drive to my nearest stamp store that carries them.

**For the "get well soon" card I followed the instructions exactly. The second card looked a little flat, so I Cuttlebug debossed the bottom layer. It still needed more, so I used a fine tip black journaling pen to trace around the faux layers. I used a black ink pad to lightly distress the circles. The "Thank You" is an American Crafts rub-on.


Wednesday a.m. I am heading to the post office to send these 5 cards out to some special people.

I just adore this BG paper...it's probably my favourite right now. I only have the 6x6, but I'm thinking I need the 12x12...I bet some of those papers look stunning in the larger print.
As for your cards....GORGEOUS!!!! I am impressed that you made 5 cards too...you must have been having some serious withdrawal symptoms...LOL.
So glad that you are home safe and looking forward to seeing your next amazing creations ♥
