I'm back and cleaning up the cobwebs that are growing in the corners of my blog!!!

Wow... it's been awhile since I've been here. I can't believe it's almost the end of August already! Kids start school today. I now have 2 in high school and one in middle school. Where is the time going??? I know I've been a busy little bee with all the projects I've done over the last few weeks. Here they are:

First up - a card I did trying something new. I'm pretty happy with it except for the writing I did on the front. I should have used a font. The kites on the card are all attached using pop dots and the kite string is actual string from a real kite! The kite tails are my attempt at doodling! LOL All in all, I think it turned out cute for my first one.

the “wood” on the kites was done using the pen tool and then an inner bevel

Next up is a 3D card I made for my niece's bridal shower. The tent flap folds back to reveal the sports store gift card that I bought her. She and her future husband enjoy anything outdoor-sy. The lantern, moon, sign and fire are on pop dots. The skillet was an element that was on the shower invite that I received from her.

and last for today is a Slumber party mini tin invite I made for my daughter to pass out. I found these cute little 4" tins in the $1 spot at Target. I removed the handles, sprayed the tin white and then added my side panels. Each tin will include the party information, mini bottles of nail polish, a nail file, nail decals, small bottle of scented lotion, mini flash light and of course, Chocolate!!!
