~ Vanilla and Roses ~ Crafty Secrets


Hello! I have a card to share with you today, filled with Crafty Secret's goodies. I love the "Vanilla" and "Rose Oil" stamps that came in the Vintage Labels clear art stamp set. Also, I used patterned paper from Love Mail creative scraps and stamped the green border on the white strip using Antique Trims clear art stamp set.


Some other supplies are scrunchy ribbons, pom-pom trim, pearls, Crate brad and tag, satin fairy wing, and a tiny clock face memorabilia. I haven't been making cards for so long, it was like a treasure chest opening up my supply boxes :) ... maybe that will motivate me to get my crafting mojo up and running full-time again.


And now friends, let me depart and go to bed. I am on the verge of making a promise to be back again soon, but for now, I have no clue when I can post again. March 2012 is going to be busy for me..... another sister's wedding (YAY!) and music exams again. In addition to regular life going on. I hope you can pardon my absence for a bit!

OH! I wanted to let you know that I decided to create some online albums where projects are easily referred to and all in one place ... so I created an FB account and slowly puddled around till i learned how to upload photos :-/ ... If you are interested in seeing all my projects for the different design teams I've worked with, without having to go through pages and pages of this blog, you can find the albums HERE. I don't care to use facebook, so it won't be for any other purpose than the photo albums, since many of you access FB daily and it will be easier for you all ... not to mention that I decided to jump on the pinterest bandwagon (finally!) and see what the fun is all about... and I needed an FB account for that. Do any of you have an extra pinterest invite for me? I requested one from Pinterest but never got it :(

Ok, it's TRULY bed time now. I WILL RETURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for dropping by.
