Scootin' birthday with Paper Loft!

Hello!!!!

It has been SOOOO long since I've had the chance to be crafty and play along in challenges. We've made a few renovations to our home, which ended up getting me evicted from my original office/craft room. BUT...lucky me, I'm just about all back together again and in a new and even better room. I'll blog about my space as soon as I have it "clean" (those who know me know that I'm a messy organizer...so clean tends to be in the eye of the beholder, ha).

Anyhoo...I had the chance to pull together  this adorable little birthday card to play along in a couple challenges:

I'm entering this in Sweet Stamp shops "Use what you have challenge #10" and in the Paper Loft PLS08 Sketch challenge.

I have been hoarding this really pretty Serendipity paper from Paper Loft and decided it was time to dust it off and make something fun. The colors and distressing in this line got me excited to break out the good ol' watercolor pencils and blending pen from Close to My Heart. I just got this adorable stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Shop and I have to say it will be well used these next couple months...there are so many fun sentiments in this set, and it is just Ah-DORABLE (and still on sale...hint hint)!. And, of course...TWINE. I love my twine these days :) Here is a pick of my selected "stash":

And, here is a close up of the watercolor pencil details (as good as my poor little camera could get) and and pop-ups :)


Here the sketch from the PLS08 challenge:


Phew...it feels good to be crafting and blogging again! Thanks for stopping by!
