I am back finally!

Well that was a crazy couple of weeks!  If the bug was out there I seemed to find it.  After laryngitis, a cold and a weird 24 hour stomach thing I am finally feeling back to my old self!  I missed out on a few challenges but I did manage to land in the Top 10 over at Heart 2 Heart!  Yeah!  I also received more Liebster Blog awards from 2 fellow CTMH bloggers Sharon - Oak Island Stamp Queen and Heather - Creative Coconut (be sure to check out their blogs).  Thank you so much ladies...I am completely honoured!  I haven't had the opportunity to pick 5 blogs so pass the award onto yet.  But I will get to that in the next few days. 

Until then I have posted a card that I made for my brother's birthday over the weekend.  It was something a little different for me.  It was a layered card.  There were 3 levels of "frames" and each had an element of the picture on it.  I used the Passage paper pack and the Beautiful Things stamp set (both retired) and I love the embossing in the center.  I used clear embossing on the Cocoa cardstock and then took some Colonial White Ink and sponged it over the image to make it pop a little.  It's not my favourite card that I've made because it is lacking something but I can't just put my finger on it.  I am thinking I should have put some brads or buttons along the bottom left corner or something.  Maybe it's because it doesn't have any embellishments...I am soooo used to have lots of embellishments on my projects.  I don't know but it was fun to do something different!

Thanks for looking!
