More Craft Kits

You can't tell from this picture .... but this card is REALLY cute. The black and whites in this card are making my camera fit to be tied and well, these are not the best images I've ever taken. Sorry.

The better news is that this is the LAST post I will be making from this computer. I'm saying a not so sad sayonara to the Dell and a happy "hello" to the Mac. I can not say I will miss the sticky keys at ALL!

These cards are two that I made using my kits for Lena's High Hopes Card Kit Swap on Splitcoaststampers. It's not too late to sign up.

My first Valentines of 2011

I have to say that I had a rough time getting back into the crafting saddle. After the craziness of my Christmas crafts I was just plum worn out. My mojo had taken a hike and my crafting area looked like a bomb exploded over it. In fact, it took two entire days just to clean up!

So when I finally sat down ... I decided to go easy on myself and just do a card kit. Dipping my toes in the world of stamping so to speak since I didn't have to think about images, matching paper or even embellishments. This was a great kit. It's from my stamping sister Angela (MonkeyMama). She knew of my love of soft pinks and Mo Manning when she compiled this kit.

My companion as always, was Romy.

She looks slightly annoyed here because I had just moved her rump so she wasn't actually standing ON the card.
