It's been so long since I blogged, it may take me a while to get back into it, even though I now have 2 challenge cards to blog along with some OWH cards. The past weeks have been a blur and unfortunately crafting WASN'T in the mix, but I'm BAAAAACKKKKKKK!

This card is not the first card I've done since my daughter and her family went home, and I got my house back together. However, it is the first one in terms of making a challenge date. The image is called Birthday Cake Desire, and it meets the theme of Teddy Bears set by Sassy Judy on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge blog this week. One thing that there are plenty of images of over in Sassy Cheryls Store. I do want to thank you all for letting it be a two week challenge, so that I could participate.

My image is colored with Copics, and the paper is from The Paper Studio I think. I got it out of my scrap box. This card is for my cousin's birthday tomorrow. The Birthday Stamp is from the $1 bin at Michaels, and I had a little fun playing with my I-Roc.

It's good to be back.


  1. Welcome back Shirley. I don't think anyone got much coloring time in during the holidays. So glad to see you back. This little guy looks so hungry, I don't think the cake will make it to your cousins. Ha Ha
