Blessings - yes, I got crafty! :)

Coffee of the Day - Sweet Potato

Your eyes are not deceiving you - yes, I did actually make a card! :)

hopefully this will be the first of many!

I have to give LOTS of credit to the very amazing and encouraging people over at Kit and Clowder - a wonderful group of crafters I have come to know on Facebook. yes, nice people DO exist on Facebook. ;) my card is made for one of the challenges going on in the group there. this happens to be for the sketch challenge.

image and sentiment are from the Crafty Secrets Thanksgiving collection. papers are from the Authentique Thankful collection, flowers are Petaloo, burlap ribbon is May Arts, and buttons are vintage. I added some touches with my white gel pen and white craft ink.

sorry for the scan being a bit crooked. it's been so long since I've used my scanner that it was giving me some fits. took me way too many tries to get it to work, as it kept turning off on me. so once I was able to get it to actually scan, I just went with it.

this card is absolutely gorgeous. what beautiful colors. i love that they're muted!

i'm still in awe at the sweet potato coffee. i did, however, find (at my church food pantry no less) smores coffee.... and yes! i grabbed a bag or 2!!!!

you will never leave crafting, it's in your veins. plus i know you, you'd hate to leave all of us anyway and we sure as hell would miss the heck out of you!

glad you're back!

hugs and prayers!
