SPCC 11 and fun mail

Hi Friends,

I know I've been a little behind on posting. I have to confess that last week was one of the most stressful weeks I have had at work in a long time. I won't bore you with the details, but I was absolutely drained each evening. I tried to check in on my favorite blogging buds, but even that I fell behind.

This weekend I was able to play around with some of my paper which is always a good stress reliever. Although I have to admit, that when I've not crafted in awhile, it takes me a bit to get back in the groove. Does that happen to any of you?? Work definitely gets in the way of my crafting fun!

First off, I got a card done for the SPCC challenge
Let me tell you that I STRUGGLED with this challenge. First, I hadn't stamped in awhile and mojo was missing as stated above :) Then I found that I do not own Green Galore. In the end, i went with Certainly Celery which is close. I absolutely love Soft Suede (another of the new SU! In Colors).

Enough of my rambling, here is what I cam up with:
In the end, I am pleased with how it turned out. In fact, I have a confession to make, you are probably going to be seeing much more of the leaves and the flowers in my upcoming posts. I'm on a kick right now. So you are forewarned ;)

Lastly, I got some fun mail last week which was truly a blessing since I was having a bad week, getting this in the mail was like Christmas in August :) Maile B. had agreed to do and exchange of sorts (some die cut images from me and some stamped images from her), so when I received all of this, I was stunned. What a sweetie. Once again, I am convinced that paper crafters are just the sweetest people out there. Thank you again for your generousity, Maile.

If you've hung with me this long, thanks! I hope that you all enjoy the remaining hours of the weekend.

Girl I love that card - LOVE IT! And I'm totally like that. When I haven't been crafting it's like that skill totally leaves me.

Thanks again for my coupon!
