Hi guys!

Apparently I needed to take a bit of a blogging break this past week. Life wasn't any busier than usual but for some reason I had a hard time getting into the crafty room. Happily, I'm feeling rejuvenated now and ready to jump right back into crafting and posting. :)

I guess you could say this card is my way of baby stepping back into everything. These now retired Kettos from Stamping Bella are still a favorite and since Madeline here was so quick to color she was just what I needed to get back into the swing of things. It also helped that she was already stamped and like everything else on this card, was pulled out of the mess on my desk. I even chose to use washi tape instead of pattern paper... shocker! ;)
And I think that sequins may just be my new embellishment love. The only thing that would make me happier is if they came in a few more smaller sizes so that I could really sprinkle 'em like my pearls and gems. But that is just nit picking really, I'm still smitten with them and predict that I'll be using them quite a bit in the near future. 

Alrighty then, I'll talk at'cha later!

So glad to see you back. This little sweetheart has the skinniest legs ever, lol. She's so cute. These sequins are becoming all the rage. Love the bottles they come in. I agree they should have some smaller sizes, which I'm sure they've been hearing from everyone. Hugs.
