Here is my "Banner with the word happy" card at practical scrappers.

be sure to vote! =D (Don't think I'll be making it past this round.. absolutely gorgeous stuff!)


I know I know.. I haven't been very good about blogging.. but I tried working for a little while. gave that up ;) and I'm in the process of moving my crafting table to the kitchen table (more room and better interaction with my family) as well as clearing out some space in the craft room for a bed.. for my Mama!!

Anyways.. I have made Amazing Mold Putty DT --- and I can't wait to show you some things I've been working on for this..

as well as the Ready, Set, Create! team!!

Super pumped about BOTH of these!! Be on the lookout for future pieces for both places =D
