9th Birthday Wishes

Hey There!

Don't fall over that you are seeing a post. I am not even sure if anyone is even going to stop by and see this ha!

I know it's been quiet, and honestly I have not stepped foot in my my craftroom since December. The projects you have seen as of late were created then and scheduled ahead.

I am in an intense accelerated program, and I have a commute in traffic each day. It leaves very little time for even my family, so you understand why it's been quiet around here. 

We had a snow day yesterday. I took a break from studying to make a card for my best friend's little girl. I needed a brain break. It felt so weird crafting again and trying to find my mojo again. Hands down I miss it!
I just used bits and pieces and this is what I came up with.  My starting point was the 9 and I just built the card around that. 
So if you're still with me reading, I appreciate it, and I appreciate you stopping by! I am sorry I have not been around to leave comments. We can't have our phones in class, so on breaks I do try and scroll through and catch some of your work. :-)))  

Inspiration was found at:

Inspired by#3 (Which is also featuring one of the sweetest designers in the business Jeanne Jachna)

Thank you again for stopping by.

Awww, this is so adorable, Tammy! I love the colors and love that big number 9 on here. I think some of the best designs come from using up those little bits and pieces we all have lying around. Makes for such a unique combo. I really adore the sequins and the touches of gold you added, and love the pom pom trim turned upside down! So fun!
Good luck with all your studies, my friend! Good for you!

Hello my friend!
I haven't stopped by in a while, and thought of you today, so I wanted to say hello. I quite understand the bit about life being too busy to be into blogging. Same here! But for different reasons. :) Good luck with school; I can't even imagine going back to school after so many years of being out of college! I wish you much success with it.

YOur "9" card is super sweet, Tammy!
Take care, and be well. xoxo
