Getting Back in the Groove

Today was the first significant amount of time I've spent in the Craft Cave since before I went away.  Our vacation was wonderful - everything we had hoped it would be - and for the first time in forever we completely relaxed.  It was bliss.  We were sad to leave our resort but excited to come home and see the hounds.  Unfortunately we only had 3 days with them before we lost Scout and so I was really not in the mood for cards last week.  A friend at work asked me to make some birthday cards for her for this week so I had to get going.  I finally started checking out a few blogs this weekend and trying to get back in the groove.    Thank goodness for some challenges to help clear the cobwebs from the crafty part of my brain!  :)  For this card I used the colours from The Play Date Cafe Challenge #70 and The Sweet Stop Sketch #97.


Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; PP: Scenic Route; Journaling Tag: Scenic Route; Stamp: The Paper Source; Ink: Plaette Reflection Blue

Does Nestabilities have a star nest?  If so, I need to invest in one because those stars were a pain in the butt to cut out!  Must look into that...

Ooh, great way to combine the colors! I too do not know if there are star nesties but I'm sure there is some sort of product out there that would work for you!

I'm glad you're back!

Nesties do have stars but only five in the pack so you don't get the small borders like you have so nicely cut.

Did some cobwebs get cleared?
