Did ya miss me?!?

Holy COW, I can't believe it's been almost a MONTH since I posted last! I've had the most insane 6 weeks of my life & I'm not sure where to begin, so I'm not even gonna try. *LOL* I'll just share what was the end of my crafting drought. Last night I sat down, told all the men in my home to "leave Mama ALONE for a bit" and made NINE CARDS in ONE HOUR. That's what happens when you go six weeks without making one solitary thing! For "quick 'n easy" I think they turned out pretty good. Here's what I put together (recipe under each pic): White pre-made A2 card base; mat from Debbie Mumm; image from PCCrafter (Flakes for Every Season by Carolee Jones); image colored with COPIC markers.
Pink pre-made A2 card base; yellow embossed mat from Debbie Mumm; pink mat cardstock; image from The Angel Company (No Bunny Like You); Classic Oval Large nestabilities for cutting out the image; image colored with COPIC markers.
Mint green pre-made A2 card base; blue striped mat from Debbie Mumm; pink cardstock; images cut out with large EK Success nesting ovals punch; Diamond Stickles on candle, wording, & cupcake icing; blue & pink inks from Tsukeniko's VersaMagic "Pretty Pastels" Dew Drop chalk inks; images colored with combination of colored pencil/odorless mineral spirits & COPIC markers.
White pre-made A2 card base; rhinestone border from Best Occasions; sponged background paper picked up on clearance at Michaels; sentiment stamp from Stampendous; image from The Angel Company (Flower Collage Trio); cut with Fiskars Victorian edge scissors; colored with pencils/odorless mineral spirits; edges inked with lilac ink from Studio G.
Chocolate pre-made A2 card base; plaid mat from DCWV's "Sweets" stack; "it's time to" cut out with large nesting oval EK Success punch & written by me; "celebrate" cut out with large nesting oval EK Success punch; both sentiment ovals highlighted with Sakura Clear Stardust Glitter Gel Pen; cake image from The Angel Company (Mabelle's "Little Cupcake"); colored with pencils/odorless mineral spirits.

Pink pre-made A2 card base; plaid mat from DCWV's "Sweets" stack; silver dew drops from The Robin's Nest; image from The Angel Company (Mabelle's "Dear Friend"); cut out with large classic oval nestabilities & embossed around the edge; image colored with pencils/odorless mineral spirits.
White pre-made A2 card base; blue striped mat from Debbie Mumm; white Scrapper's Floss from Karen Foster Designs; image from The Angel Company (Flower Collage Trio); image colored with pencils/odorless mineral spirits.
Yellow ochre pre-made A2 card base; purple mat from Debbie Mumm; clear dew drops from The Robin's Nest; image from The Angel Company (Flower Collage Trio); image colored with pencils/odorless mineral spirits; eggplant ink from Tsukeniko's VersaMagic "Harvest" Dew Drop chalk inks; edges cut with deckle edge scissors

Khaki pre-made A2 card base; purple mat from Debbie Mumm; image from The Angel Company (Flower Collage Trio); edges cut with deckle edge scissors; tan Scrapper's Floss from Karen Foster Designs; inked with Jumbo Java from Tsukeniko's VersaMagic chalk inks; image colored with pencils/odorless mineral spirits.

Well, that's it for me. I'm not sure when I can get back on here, but I REALLY hope that it's not going to be more than a day or two. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
