After over 2 years, I am so excited to be back updating this blog. I've been busy keeping my yoga studio and home running, and with my children. I have done a little papercrafting, but mostly been using the all the cards that I have made since I started this creative hobby. I have a box of them and they are for sharing --- so that's a good thing. Last night I was inspired by a "Love" card in a magazine, and I made this card using cardstock, preprinted papers from the dollar store, and the Stampin' Up "love" stamp from the "Wonderful Words" set.

A tiny pink dragonfly brad completed it!  I was happy to use my Cuttlebug to cut and emboss the round labels.  Back at it, and I've already decided to be on the lookout for 2 new craft items:  A larger "Love" stamp, and the Cuttlebug tan embossing mat.  Although I might have the latter, *somewhere* around here.

I am so grateful for my daughter, Katelyn, and her interest in everything crafty, which motivates me to keep practicing.  While I was crafting last night, Katelyn was making her own creation: 

I love how she put it together in half the time that I took, and the black really stands out. Hoping we can spend at least once a week together papercrafting!  

Namaste, Kathryn
