Did you miss me??

Hi everyone, long time no blog huh?? My life has been insanely busy this last month but things are finally starting to calm down a bit so that I can get back into crafty mode :) Heck, maybe I'll even get to blog more than once every two weeks lol!

For the first time in a long time, I finally have been able to play along in the TSG challenge!! This week's challenge is a recipe challenge and the ingredients to use are at least one of the following- Snowflake, bird, ribbon/button. I was surprised by how easy I was able to create a CAS style card while still incorporating all of these things.

I used one of my favorite winter stamp sets Penguin Love and for my little penguin's scarf, I made little slits on each side of the scarf and fed through some ribbon. I used some red line tape to keep it down. This ribbon is my favorite right now! It is super thin and comes in a variety of colors from Ribbon Carousel. Love it!!

Also, I think one of my favorite new things is super chunky clear glitter! It is PERFECT for snow. I have had mine for ages and am just now starting to use it. See???? That's the reason why we crafters hoard our supplies, we know that we will use them SOME day lol!!
