Happy it is the weekend!

Hi Blog readers! I haven't been here posting a lot in the last week or so.  I have actually missed it.  I have been super busy with work, and then things I have to do after work, that it leaves VERY little time to relax, unwind, and eat supper, much less do a blog post and do any crafting.  I have been promising a new card to post, and well, I try to fulfill my promises.  I made this for my friend Stacie at work.  She helped me do something I needed done at work, and I wanted to acknowledge her for it.   So- here it is....

I wanted to use my Top Note Die from Stampin' Up.  It is one of my favorite dies.  I also used an embossing folder from Stampin' Up.  I believe it is called Fifth Ave Rose.  I could be mistaken on that.  On the embossed image where the raised parts are, I took a finger nail file and sanded on that image to expose some of the white underneath, and then took different shades of Distress Inks and applied the ink to the white portions.  Then I just added some baker's twine, and a couple of buttons for some interest.  So sorry guys it has taken me a while to post anything.  I will try to get back into the swing of things.  I wanted to quickly mention that I will be featured on the blog "Crafty Storage" on the 30th of Jan.  If any of you read that blog- it is great if you love discovering new storage ideas for your crafts.  I will post more about that when it is available.  I also thought about trying my hand at a You Tube video this weekend.  We will see how it turns out!  Have a nice weekend everyone!  Till then...

Stay Inspired!
