Farewell to May....

I have been a terrible blogger ALL YEAR! I sincerly do apologize, and have no excuse for my disappearance. You all know I lost my Mom in January, and quite honestly, I have had LITTLE TO NO drive to create since. My wonderful friend, Cindy, has been really encouraging me to get back into the cardmaking, and with her love and gentle prodding ( hahaha) I have been creating some!
Thie first card is one I made using one of my favorite cupcake stamps made by Inkadinkado. I used my fave DP from SU, and it all just fell together wonderfully. I gave this one to one of the little girls at my school, and she was SO PROUD that Miss Julie had made it just for her. She showed the entire school...LOL! Needless to say, every child in the school has told me when their birthday is...I have a mile long list, and MANY birthday cards to create. Guess the little ones appreciate handmade things - how cool is that?
This next card is one I made with one of my FAVORITE new SU sets called Vintage Vogue. I never thought that I would like something called VINTAGE anything, but this set is beautiful and SO versatile!! I have made several cards with this set, some of which I have no pictures, but many that I do, so you will see those sometime, I promise. I used Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Old Olive. It is simple yet elegant...
Well, this is it for now. I hope to be back very soon with more creations. I think I will go check out the challenges for this week. Have a Wonderful week~
