Missing you

Hi!

This is my second post today. If you are here for my 365 cards  Super Sketchy Sunday post, scroll down, or click HERE. This post will have a little bit of wining (sorry!), a new card (which I loooove) and my first ever blogged card (which I don’t love as much but trust me, it could have been worse)…

Wining part… oh, well, I’m having a summer cold. And let me tell you some about summer colds. They are NOT FUN!!! And they seem to never end. That’s why it’s been awfully quiet here and why I haven’t visited my blogging friends. Sorry folks! Anyway, I woke up today without a headache and that is a relief. Which also meant I was able to make a card (and spend some time in front of the computer)! Yihaaa!!! And maybe it’s because I was so happy about sitting by my craft table again, I did a card I really, really like! And that is RARE! Here it is – all bluuuue!!!

Missing youUsed some embossing resist technique and look at the fabbie embellies – the crochet flower is made by Li-bee ti (I’ve been hoarding this one cause I loooove that color combo!!!) and the home made wrinkled ribbon  (which has a wonderful sent of something I can’t define) is a gift from Sherry. The card is based on the design of Card Pattern’s sketch #77.

I’m also entering it in .. wee Memories’ .. challenge #18 using brads, buttons and bling. I used pearl brads and a lot of stickles.

Now over to the first card I ever put up on my blog. You should all blame Amy, who has challenged her blog readers to bring up the history… So, this one is my first ever card on my blog, dating back almost exactly three years, August 14th 2007.

RAK-IreneIt’s a RAK for my friend Irene and I had made paper roses for the first time, just like the ones I used on the wedding card last month.  I remember I was mighty happy with it… LOL!!!

Have a great Sunday folks!

Your Tilda is beautiful. So very soothing. And your first card is elegant in its simplicity. It's great seeing all the first cards.
