Sorry I haven't posted anything for awhile. My dad had a massive heart attack and nearly died. He is doing a little better now but it is going to take a long time for him to recover. Then on Tuesday my mom had a lung removed (cancer) and of course her hospital is across town from my dad's. I have been pretty busy going back and forth between the two of them, working full time and taking care of my family. I will try to get something posted soon but please have patience while I work through this tough time.

Scrapfest class

This is the cute card that I made at the Our Craft Lounge class at Scrapfest this year. I had never used their Crafty Sparkles glitter before. It it totally awesome (goodness can you tell I grew up in the 80's?). Anyway, it is really fun and it was used to make the snow. There is also some white Sparkly Fluff on the little penguins belly and hat. It is white so it is hard to see in the scan but fun to touch on the card!

Stamps: Joyful Penguins (OCL)
Ink: Black (sorry I don't remember what kind)
CS: ?
Other: Copics, Crafty Sparkles, Sparkly Fluff
