Back at it again...

I have been absent from the blogging world for some time. Okay...I've been gone for a looooong time. I'm back and ready to share my scrappy creations with you again!! So much has happened in last *almost* two years since my last post. I won't bore you with the details, but I will mention that I got Mono a year ago and am *STILL* feeling the after 'effects'. If you've EVER had mono, you know what I'm talking about!!! The mono brought on anxiety and muscle pain issues, both ailments I am slowing but surely overcoming. Crafting truly IS the best {and cheapest} THERAPY there is!!! 

Here are a few projects I worked on these last two weeks. The card was for a "Just Because" swap and the 6x6 layout was for a "Use Your Stamps Sketch Challenge", both from the Scrappy Chicks Facebook Group I'm part of {local group}. 

Card: Cardstock is from my stash; sentiment is from a TAC stamp; patterned paper is from Paper Studio
Layout: Stamps are from Studio G Ditto. collection: Love, Cherish Honor {the heart, sentiment and background stamped sentiment are all from this set}; patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's It's the Little Things 6x6 pad; the ribbon and cardstock are from my 'stash'; and, the brad is from Paper Studio's Spare Parts.

Pardon the bad pics, I used my phone to take these pics because it was easier to upload to FB, hehe. My phone takes fairly good pics, but it doesn't 'get' the lighting like I wish it would. 
Here's hoping all has been well in your world since my last post and/or your last visit. I'm so glad to be crafting and blogging again!!

Happy Crafting,
