Sweet Home Alabama



Joy and Jared have left the islands and are now back in Alabama. Yes, we did the "ugly cry" at the airport and then burst out laughing because we looked so hideous! Their flight was boarding by the time we parked the cars, so it was a quick goodbye and all I could think was, "Have a safe trip!....Where did I put my pop dots?" I really missed crafting!

I like Jennifer McGuire's idea of giving out unannounced RAKs to random commenters. It really embodies the true meaning of a RAK! And you can spread out the love. Now I just have to find and sort out my supplies and blog candy.....


Meanwhile, here's a simple Easter card using two Pure Innocence girls. The little girl with the basket is a clear stamp from My Favorite Things, while the one with the Easter hat is a digi. I'll be sending this card to a sweet friend who'll be spending Easter away from home.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you all have a great weekend and wish me luck in finding my stuff.....

Stamps: My Favorite Things, Digistampcharacters by Heather Ellis
Cardstock: Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities dies, Sizzix embossing folder,
ribbon, pop dots

  17. LOve your Pur Innocence cards! You should get these images for FREE since you work magic with them!! I totally undestand the "Ugly Cry" as I do that so often every time when my DD leaves home!! Time to get back to your/my crafting....it's a good therapy:)
