... So... it's been a while

     Umm... yeah. Title kinda says it all, it's been a while. < a hugely under exaggerated statement! So yeah, life kinda happened (or maybe it's that it didn't happen?). I wont drag on making tons of excuses but the highlights are that my craft area was over run, I kinda lost my mojo for a while and then last year literally on the day that I was planning on starting up and making Christmas cards I fell and sprained my wrist! My doctor was said that it was the worst sprained that he had ever seen with out someone breaking their wrist. So about 7 months latter my wrist finally healed up and I started to retake my crafting area!

So I'm getting back into the swing of things and recently discovered Kit and Clowder! I bought up the Skin and Hair class and I'm slowly making my way though it! I'm looking forward to the before and after pictures.

Today I'm sharing 2 cards. The first is a card for my friends birthday.

The image in the card is 'Take Me Away' by Tiddly Inks!

So you can see that I kinda fudged up on the legs of the tub. Next time I want to use gold I know not to use the pen's and instead just get out my paint and brush!

Next card is a Christmas card for the woman that sell me my MK moisturizer. No kidding that stuff really works, I was at the theater the other day and they gave me the student price! (ok maybe that was because I didn't have any make up on... I'm going with the moisturizer theory though!)

This stamp is 'Season's Greetings', one of my favorite's from Krista Smiths 'Simply Sassy' line. Also used on this card is Memory Box die - Snowflake Corner and a sentiment stamp by Dear Lizzy.

I made a little mistake on her eye that was covered up by some Shabby embossing powder. I also used a white gel pen, Ranger Liquid pearls and a clear Zig Wink glitter pen on her eye's and the holly.

Over all I'm pretty darn happy with how this card came together. I also used this image in a card exchange for Kit and Clowder, I'll post images of that card when the lady that I was partnered with receives it!

So that's all for today, I'm off to make more card's for Christmas!
