Teacher Gift Set

In light of my new attitude in getting pro-active I'm posting my first photo!! This is a card set I made for my son's teacher as a Christmas gift. I used the Stampin' Up In Color series along with the Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set.

I was inspired by a card by Beth Ann Wilson on SCS and the set came together fairly easily! I hope the recipient enjoys it! She's a wonderful teacher and deserves ten times more!!

stamps: Kind and Caring Thoughts
card stock: Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede
ink: same

The edges of the Soft Suede mat are distressed--it's a little hard to see in the photo.

Have a great day!!!

Blogging.....Take two!

Okay--can someone please tell me where I lost 4 months?? I started this blog in August with full intentions of posting regularly. I thought I could encourge myself to focus on my "creating" and not so much my "hoarding" of supplies. Anyway......POOF!!! 4 months gone! So the kids went back to school, extra-curricular activites started again, new routines, baby demanding more attention as he gets more active..........I get it! I'm kind of short on time. But I would have never guessed so much time had elapsed!! :( Please forgive me!! As I journey toward self-improvement I hope we can inspired each other to grow and become better! My immediate goals are to become more organized (in my crafting and in my overall life) and focus on doing and not planning to do. It just seems that every year as New Year resolution time rolls around I have the same list over and over again! I openly decree that this year will be different!!! How?? 1- I am determined to actually make it happen and 2-you will be here to keep me honest!!! ;) I hope you're willing to take this journey with me!!!
