Well, hello my crafty peeps! Been a little bit since I last posted and I'm sorry about that. Things have been kind of crazy round here so please forgive me. However, I'm hoping to get back to my normal routine now and to kick things off, I'm sharing with you a card I created for my Guest Design post at Paper Crafting Journey! I shared a creation about a month ago that I created for PCJ as well and you can check that card out HERE. I can tell you right now that I've loved creating for them & if you are not familiar with their challenge site, you should definitely check PCJ out RIGHT HERE! Psssttt...this week's super fun challenge is embossing - which I made sure to showcase on my hearts. Oh, and I just have to share that I scored that sweet sentiment for a whopping 12 cents, yep 12 cents, at my local Hobby Lobby Basket Market awhile back. Love that place so much and if you are lucky enough to have one, go check it out!!

I feel a little happy getting a jump start on a few of my handcrafted Christmas cards this year. Normally, if I get any made at all, it is at the very last minute. I swear I'm one of the world's worst procrastinators! I'm hoping to get back here later this week to show off a few more holiday cards I'm whipping up. It doesn't feel like we should be talking about Christmas yet since Thanksgiving hasn't even passed, but oh well. For those dreading the craziness that comes with the holidays, forgive me for starting early! Make sure to hop on over to Paper Crafting Journey to check out this week's challenge and I hope you'll play along too!
Until next time, Happy Craftin'!
