when they all leave...

It is time to relax...slightly...and get back to the craft room. Never imagined my July would be so filled with family visits, weekend getaways, and a bunch of crafting, ok the crafting part I knew. As my little men waited, with their shoes on, for five hours today to flee our house and board the plane to grammy's house everything is quiet...maybe a little too quiet. This visit with my mother seemed a little too short, but loved having her here.

How cute is the set "Have A Seat" from Whimsie Doodles? Loved all the digital images in this set, especially the little kitty. My good friend Kate from Kate's Etsy shop was so generous in sending me a fabulous collection of ribbon and fibers that were used in this card. Check out her Etsy shop as she always has a great selection of vintage and handmade items!

In order to keep me in the crafting world while spending time with family I made one little tag. I love Whimsie Doodles sentiment stamps and MelJen's Designs cupcake freebie. Felt it went so well together...and of course have to have a little wrinkle ribbon in the mix.

For the winner of the wrinkle ribbon...congratulations Garret Family for being the lucky number 13 which was drawn. Your wrinkle ribbon bundle will be on it's way as soon as I hear back from you.

A huge thank you to Patsy from Prairie Bird Boutique for supplying the bundles for this giveaway and to all of you who participated. I have truly enjoyed reading, and treasure, each and every comment I receive. Stay tuned for another giveaway next week.One last card before I go. I noticed that one little red bow is missing from her hair, but still just as cute. This image is from Whimsie Doodles and from the new release this month. Check out this months new images. Working on a few more to share and hope to be back over the next few days to share a few more items. Trying to think up new techniques and something fun to show and tell soon!

Have a great day and check in over at my Etsy shop tomorrow evening as I will begin listing more items.
