Meanwhile, back in the Korner...

Happy 2012!  I'm back from some time off from blogging, and ready to start a new year.  We had a wonderful holiday break, and spent some time with out-of-town family members who were able to stay a few extra days for some extra fun and after-holiday shopping (well, I guess that qualifies as "fun," too!). Slowly but surely the house is getting back to "normal"...this weekend the last of the holiday decor is going back up in the attic for another year.

I worked a bit in my craft room over the holiday break, and have several new cards that I can share here with you.  (The rest are going into my "stash" to be sent out for upcoming occasions, so those will have to be shared after they arrive at their new homes. :)  )

This first card uses another adorable image from MadeByJanet on Etsy. I paired it with a sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink for what I thought would be a fun friendship or birthday card, or maybe even an out-of-the-ordinary Valentine!

Patterned Papers: Sassafras Sweetly Smitten collection, MyMindsEye A Beautiful Life collection
Vintage image: Made by Janet on Etsy      Chipboard Frame: Tattered Angels
Doily Die: Memory Box (whimsy circle)      Sentiment Stamp: Papertrey Ink      Pearls: Prima
Lace: LittleRedCottage on Etsy      Hand-dyed Hug Snug Seam Binding      Silver heart: local craft store

A while back, I purchased some adorable Prima chipboard pieces, and thought I'd save them for spring cards.  Well, that plan didn't work...I couldn't resist playing with them just a little bit earlier! :)

Up first, a friendship card...

Patterned Papers: Prima Romantique collection, Authentique Uncommon collection,
Sassafras Sweetly Smitten collection
Frame: Tattered Angels      Chipboard Sentiment: Prima      Sentiment Stamp: Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards
Pearls: Recollections      Hand dyed Hug Snug seam binding     
Handcrafted stick pin starting with Maya Road leaf pin      Lace: Frogfeathers on Etsy

The next card uses another Prima chipboard piece and it just begged for some shabby and feminine embellishments for a sweet friendship card.

Patterned Papers: Authentique Gathering collection      Pearls: Recollections
Aqua fabric flower: Frogfeathers on Etsy       Chipbpard Frame: Tattered Angels
Chipboard sentiment block & paper rose: Prima      Cotton Lace: craft store      Hug Snug seam binding        

Thanks for stopping by this weekend!  I have more new projects to share...I just need to finish the photos...I'll be back soon!
