Hello Again...

Um... it's been... a while... And I'm not going to make "excuses" as to why I have not blogged as usual (because that's boring to write & read!) but there has been various reasons and that's enough said on that matter :)

So crafting. Have I still been crafting? Yes! Though maybe not quite as much as I'd like to. We moved in the autumn. Can't even remember if I mentioned it here or not. Anyway the good news is that I have a much bigger room for my scrapping/card making/crafting, but it's still not completely unpacked... so I have been doing what I can.

Right now I'm taking the Online Card Classes current class by Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner and Julie Ebersole to get some card inspiration and it's proving a lot of fun! :)

It's only a 2 week class and I realise that I won't be making cards every day, but I love going through the lessons and getting inspired. Also I will be working behind, regardless, as I prefer to do my crafting in the daytime and the lessons arrive about mid afternoon here as they are scheduled in the morning in the US....

Anyway this is the card I made inspired by Monday's class. I started off using a sketch by Jennifer McGuire but ended up doing something quite different to her card as I did not have the same supplies... so I'm not even sure it's too easy to tell it's based on the sketch...?

I used several different Hero Arts shadow inks and some Hero Arts stamps from two sets to make up the card design. Plus some foam adhesive, a heart punch, Glossy Accents and some Liquid Pearls. It was fun, and different, to do a card that relied so much on inks and very little additional paper :)

I already have an idea for my next card so hopefully I will be back on here again soon... ;)
