quick post

yeah, i know i've been a bad blogger. I am trying to get over the guilt LOL. I just decided when i got a minute I'd jump on here and post a card. I've been busy with work and trying to make some valentine's (the yearly rakarama is coming up you know) and get back to scrapbooking - which had gone by the wayside entirely over the last year pretty much. More on that another day. But I did make a birthday card for my friend Michele. Yes, all the stamps are from Purple Onion Designs (naturellement!). I'd been wanting to use the damask background stamp since I'd gotten it - and stamping it on a paper bag might seem odd but I liked the look. I used a little scrap of Basic Grey and some purple cardstock and stitched it all on my machine. Oh and I colored the hand using some prismacolor pencils. So there you have it. We had some snow yesterday - advertised as a dusting but it ended up being a few inches. We did some fast shoveling this morning and got some shopping done afterward so this afternoon I'm thinking I'll try and work on the aforementioned scrapbooking. Have a wonderful Sunday!
