special delivery...thank you!

hello!!

It seems like I haven't posted in forever but it's only been since Monday...LOL.  The thing is, the last time I crafted was probably Friday so that has been a long time.

I have a smidge of a tall card to share today...the creative process went out of control and I managed to layer up tons of goodies:

Really, the inspiration that sparked the card is this one:



Originally I scoured the web for a similar image...that route is a smidge over whelming so I popped over to Jessica Sprague to see what I could find...it reminded me that I have some Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly that I've been neglecting...

The card is chock full of goodness....I'm going to be working on my holiday thank you's/New Years Day cards today...what I can make I'll pop in the mail tomorrow and then off to Valentine's Day cards...I was very naughty and didn't manage to send out very many holiday cards this year...no excuses...

I was overwhelmed with TONS of gorgeous cards and gifties from some seriously SWEET bloggie friends...Thank You Thank You Thank You...

The sentiment is Lawn Fawn's sophie's sentiments...LOVE that set...sweet font:)  I'm linking up to the FAB Lawnscaping Challenge #24:


Tons of texture including the embossing and the glitz...I tend to be a silver glitter girl but couldn't pass up the Martha Yellow Gold Glitter and LOVE it.

I'm also linking up to the Wee Memories Challenge #80:


Speaking of Wee Memories...


I've been meaning to blog about the print I won from Jenny...it's available in her Etsy Shop, Jenny Suchin Designs, Believe in Pink.  I popped it in an Ikea frame...and it sits in my Craft Room that is {obviously} still in progress...{Darin so kindly put together my faux Expedit that we picked up at Target}....need to make another trip to Ikea for more of those square baskets.

I've decided to link up to CAS-ual Fridays #33:


In the big picture...or amy's big picture, this is pretty CAS for me:)  One strip of patterned paper...no stitching...did you notice that?!!!

How was everybody's holiday?  We had an excellent time at all the different homes...I consider us lucky to have so many homes to celebrate in.  

One of the many fab gifts I received is this glorious {white} iPod Touch:

{{thank you to my SWEET Darin!!}}

I LOVE it....spent way too much time on line and retail shopping for a new case...almost spent over $40 for one online and then ended up with a white hard casing...for which I will personalize with some EAD Designs vinyl...stay tuned for that:)

Did you see the Design Team Call announcement over on EAD Designs?

I'm going to continue to design for EAD...LOVE their products:)

Okay, are you still with me???

I'm super sad to post this....


Another brick and mortar closing shop...makes me super blue...


Okay, probably not the best way to end this post so let me add this...I'm going HERE because of THIS.

Did you enter this at CAS-ual Fridays? I think you still should, if you haven't. It is a great CAS design, and I adore those colors. And how I wish for a craft room of my own, I would so steal that sign with the coffee cup on it.
