*****This will stay at the top until Friday.  Scroll down for new posts*****

SO have you been missing me??  Did you stop by and wonder where my blog went?!?!  Well...yesterday I got the bright idea to upgrade to Google +.   When I was inputting my personal information I accidentally typed in 2012 instead of my actual birth year and guess what?  That makes me too young to have a Google account so Google shut me down immediately!  Gmail, Blogs, everything.  It was a total nightmare yesterday.  I won't go into all the gory details but I had to prove to Google that I was old enough to have an account and I have finally gotten it all back up and running tonight.   YEAH!! 

Wow you don't realize how much you depend on it until it is gone. 

I scrapped yesterday and got 2 cards and a gift bag made.  All dt projects.  I will post one of them tomorrow.  I did make a card on Saturday with my new We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punches.   So that is what you get to see here today.
I was just playing around punching out different sized squares and got motivated to make this shaped card.  It is out of the awesome DCWV - The Celebration Stack paper pad that Denise gave me when she came to visit.  I just love how bright and happy it is.  The card is pretty clean and simple.  I added a vellum sentiment to the inside.
I am going to enter it in the shaped card challenge at Creative Cutter Room.

Here is the last time I will bug you about entering the Something Sweet Challenge at Crafter's Companion.  The challenge ends tomorrow so if you plan to enter this month you need to get on the stick!!! lol 

Also, there is a new stamp set being given away over there this week.  It is the Anthony & Burt - Hoppy Birthday stamp set.  The giveaway ends on Thursday, March 1st 8pm PST so if you want to get in on that action you better go over and leave a comment HERE

And since I am happy that I am back up and running I am going to do a little giveaway right here on this blog!

I am going to giveaway 3 Winter SWALK stamp sets.  One to each winner.  (so 3 winners)

I am giving away:

Okay, enough for now.  I need to feed my kids.  More tomorrow!!
