Easing back in
Oh blog, I have missed you so much! Four days is the longest I've gone since I started this blog without a post. I had a great weekend at Penn State, and both of my work trips are over for the year, so I am back to my regular life, thank goodness! Tonight was the first night in WEEKS that I was able to go up to my scrapbook haven and have some fun, and there was so much I wanted to do that I almost overwhelmed myself. I played with a few different ideas, and then the idea for tonight's card popped into my head. I wanted to use my new build-a-brads that I got from the clearance rack so I decided to do a 'vintage' snowflake card. When I finish this card (this may be one of my personal Christmas cards this year), I'll use the sentiment from the Sincere Salutations set, which is on the formal side, calligraphy-ish. Can you see the Champagne mist shimmer mist I sprayed on????
