Still haven't finished that LO...

OK, so I still haven't finished that LO, but I have a totally good excuse... My very first batch of homebrew wine (well mist wine anyway) was ready and bottled on Friday, and I got a little... Distracted! :)

Seriously, how I didn't figure out how cheap and easy this was in university is beyond me, but I made a Strawberry White Zinfandel and it turned out totally yummy!!! Now I just hope there will be some left for the summer! Luckily I have another batch (a banana pineapple concoction) that will be ready in two weeks to take some of the pressure off the first batch! If it's half as good, I'll be a happy (and well stocked) girl!

So on to a card I did last week-end that I finally took a picture of... Sorry the lighting is so bad, I usually try to take my pics in daylight, but alas here is my Poppy Hello card.

Long time, no crafting?

Has it really been more than 3 months since I've touched a piece of patterned paper or had ink stains on my hands? I hadn't even shopped for supplies! How does that happen? I guess every once in a while we need a vacation from our hobbies to keep the interest renewed. I guess they say "absence makes the heart grow fonder" for a reason eh? That's totally applicable to the situation here right?

Anyway... I have actually purchased new supplies, the first step to recovery! And how did I miss that there were new colors of Distress Inks?? When did these come out?? I feel like I need to go buy them all right now (if it weren't 2am I may be on my way to search!) I'm excited, can you tell? :)

After jumping back into the crafty goodness on the week-end, I have 6 cards and 1/2 a LO complete. Here is the first card... rest still to be photographed...
