I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

WOW! It's 2012

So, yeah, some hiatus I've had. It's crazy how time flies. The last half of last year was pretty crazy for me, didn't spend time posting on my blog or participating in challenges. I did do some crafts here and there, making cards for family and friends, and quite a few goodie bags. I just didn't post anything on the blog. Anyway, this year I hope to be better, but no promises because I am going to have my hands full with a new baby girl come May! I have been working on a cute blanket for her arrival, and I will probably post a pic of it once it's done. Today's post has been influenced by a challenge from My Pink Stamper's Friday's blog hop (www.mypinkstamper.com). Robyn issued a challenge to create a card using the color red, a pink ribbon, and a circle, along with a cricut cut. Of course, because of Valentine's Day coming this week it seems that was also part of the inspiration. So this card I will be giving to my awesomely energetic niece who is very much a tomboy. She will appreciate the card not being so girlie and having the fun frog on the front. The frog is from the Paisley Cart, which by the way I got at Christmas along with 8 others all for $10 each - the craziest Black Friday deal ever! The circle is cut from George and I used the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug embossing folder for the mat. It was fun to participate in this challenge, I have missed it. Hope you enjoy!
