WOW it has been a while!!

It's been busy and then not busy around here.

Seems time has been passing so much faster these days.. well, except for when i'm sitting at my desk at work.. then time seems to go by kinda slow!!

Its been ages since I created anything worth showing, but here's a card I made a little while ago using an image I have been hoarding. I love TGF images, and just recently bought some when they were on sale at Scrappingreatdeals. Before then, though - my friend Kadie sent me a few images and I have been HOARDING them ever since. Afraid to color them up and cut them out for fear I wont have any more to play with if I mess it up! But alas, they were too cute just to leave black and white! (well, off white).

So here is a very thankful Ian for you today.

DSP and CS is Stampin' Up. Ian is colored with Copic markers and yuo can't really tell in this image, but the stripes on his hat are higlighted with a browny red Spica Glitter Pen.

Sorry about the quality of the image.. yep, I cheated and used the camera phone again.. bad bad me.... bad bad me....

On the upside ~ my crafting room has never been tidier! We are listing our condo again (please cross your fingers for a quick and profitable sale!!!!! ) so again, I had to tidy up and pack up. I do have some storage solutions now, though - so nothing had to get sealed away in boxes. I just have to be diligent, and put away everything when I'm done. Now, we can all do that can't we?..... can't we?????????

Thanks for stopping by!

Put things away? Hmmmm... THAT'S a novel concept for me!!!! Your Ian card is just adorable, and I wish I could see that Spica glitter pen better. I bet that looks awesome IRL! So good to see you're crafting again!

Love ya,

Karen your Ian is so cute! I love the plaid PP and the sparkly-edge ribbon. Hey, since your craft room is tidy, how about heading south of the border and tackling mine? I'm crossing all sorts of parts for your condo sale! {hug}
