Sometimes it’s hard to choose between your hobbies and all of life’s other little offerings.  Hobbies usually win but lately my husband and I have been working on a few other things and both of us are neglecting our studios (mine is a craft studio obviously – his is a music studio). 

I don’t like to share too many “personal” things on my blog firstly because this is a blog about making paper crafts and secondly as a basic security issue.  However, once the things we have been working on are finalized you can bet I will be sharing (two things – one is for both of us and one is just for me) as they are both quite exciting! (but not related to cardmaking)

The point is that most of our energies are focused elsewhere these days but things will settle down.  I’m still creating 2-3 projects a week – I just don’t get a chance to blog about them.

I am sharing a card today though:

Don’t you just love it?  Yummy Cosmo Cricket paper (DeLovely) and a Whipper Snapper stamp (I hope you don’t get sick of seeing this guy…it’s one of my favourites – so fun to colour).

I also threw in some flat backed pearls (Recollections at M’s…watch for them to go on sale and grab a couple of packs so you won’t feel a ridiculous need to hoard) and a little piece of SU ribbon.   A subtle zigzag stitch substitutes for the need to put something over the paper join. 

Of course, whenever I make a card like this I realize how little bright paper I have in my enormous stash of patterned paper.  I do have some new stuff on the way and I hope it gets here soon!

Enjoy the rest of your day…I think I’ll try to make some notepads and pens for gifts.
