3 Girl JAM Guest Designer: Anything Goes Challenge

Wow it's been awhile since I last posted, it's been bitter sweet to stop blogging. I don't have the motivation to craft but I have more time to focus on more important things. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. It was quiet around here alot of people were sick and unable to make it or couldn't get time off work to come from out of town. I have the time off work until the 2nd of January which is a nice break from all the kids (although my daughter keeps asking when they are coming back). Like I said in my last post I have 2 Guest Designer spots that I had already promised to do before I made the decision to stop blogging so today is the first of those posts.It's a Guest Designer for 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog . They have a challenge going on "Anything Goes". I decided to create a centre step card and used two colours of the beautiful crinkle ribbon that Julie and her daughter's sell, Baby Blue and Ice Blue.

What I Used:

3 Girl JAM: Baby Boy & Ice Blue Crinkle Ribbon
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : January Carnations & Bethany's Birthday Wishes
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir: TB1 & TB2
Bic Mark It Markers: Green
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Baby's Breath
Spellbinders Nestabilites: Big Scalloped Ovals (SM)
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Lace Doily
Pop Dots
Needle and thread

I had never made this type of flower out of the ribbon but it was very easy. You just weave the needle and thread through the bottom of the ribbon and pull it tight to form the flower, stitch the two ends together, glue a button to the centre and there you go! In January I have another non card project that I have made using this type of flower for my second Guest Designer spot. Head on over to 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog and join in the fun!

Have A Great Day!

God Bless!

A Sad Good Bye

Good Morning! This is a hard post for me to write as I have had a great 3 years but I am sad to say I have made the tough decision to stop blogging. It has taken up alot of my time lately, time that should be spent with my daughter and working on my relationship with God. I still have two more posts one on Dec. 28th and one in January as I have been asked to be Guest Designers before I made this decision and I already have the projects done. I will be stopping cold turkey, meaning I will not post or visit other blogs as I know if I were to continue visiting blogs I would be temped to start blogging again, I just feel that this is the time for me and I can't keep putting it off. Thank you to all of you who have continued to support me and follow me, thank you to all the wonderful friends I have made, I hope that our friendship can continue via email or facebook!!

Good Bye!
