It’s been so long since I’ve made a card.  I’ve been playing with textile crafts lately and have so much sewing and cutting paraphernalia scattered around my craft room there simply hasn’t been any space for paper crafting.

I finished a (gasp!) Christmas stocking last night – forgive the time of year for that but I don’t really sew and it was my first time making a stocking – and decided that it was time to tuck the fabric and sewing machine away for a bit and get back into playing with my neglected paper crafting supplies.

I whipped this card up fairly quickly tonight.  It’s simple but colourful and cute:

Image stamp is MFT, sentiment is Simon Says Stamp.  I treated myself to a couple of orders a few weeks ago and received both parcels this week.  Perfect timing to switch crafting gears.

Hoping to spend a little more time in the craft room this weekend – unfortunately, it will be mostly to do a bit or reorganizing/purging.  Ugh!
