BINGO!

I'm Baaack - to my long neglected blog, that is!! 

Simon Says Stamp has provided this grid for us to use for this week's challenge:


I made a card for my grandaughter's birthday using the center line (die cut, free and glitter).


This week I found some beautiful 12 x 12 sheets of BoBunny patterned paper at a local craft store and some pretty gems, stones and pearls to match them.  I used one of the glittery gems on the Memory Box butterfly and some Stickles diamonds glitter around the edge of it. The stitched lines are in the paper itself; I love the light blue with black accents.

Thanks to anyone who is still interested enough to visit my blog and leave a comment!!  It has just been a very busy summer for me and, honestly, blogging and being on the computer takes up so much time.  Sadly, something has to get put aside and it's usually blogland!!

Hope your summer has been fun and full of family and friends.

Welcome back Joy-and such a lovely welcome with your beautiful card!! Yes, summer does give us more reason to spend time outdoors and less time on the PC-but it's worth it isn't it-besides, it's nice to have some breaks from things in prder to return fresh. Enjoy the rest of summer!
