Hero Arts acetate card, and my month in photos

Hello!

Thank you all for being so patient while I took a bit of a blogging break, it was just what I needed.

The past few weeks have FLOWN by!! I have absolutely no idea what I've been doing, but here are some photos to give you (and me!) an idea :)



 I got my first professional haircut and colour in almost 4 years, and I can't tell the difference LOL (I should just stick to doing it myself!

 I've been stalking my mailman, who may or may not be a ninja--he's very sneaky and leaves things in my letterbox without my knowing.

 We've been going for long drives (daytrips) into the country and enjoying the W.I.D.E open spaces.

 Chopping veges and having stirfry for BREAKFAST--this is what happens when I'm friends with people in the USA. Being on the opposite timezone and seeing what they eat for dinner makes me crave weird foods in the morning!

 Getting a delivery of BEEEAUTIFUL buttons and crinkle ribbon from my gorgeous friend Chari's etsy shop Mossy Made You'd be crazy not to pick some up, they're amazing quality and a fabulous price.

 More long drives in the country that leave some little ones exhausted :)

 Playing with gorgeous girls :)

 LOTS of scrapbooking (this is an embellishment-making session)

 Getting surprise roses from the most wonderful husband (in a vintage-style birdcage no less!! he knows I love 'em!)
 Playing silly faces :)


 Drooling over handsome actors on the side of a bus :) (this one's for you Chari :))



and I've been doing LOTS of crafting,  hopefully I'll be able to share it all with you, but for now, here is just one card I've made :



This one was inspired by the amazing Jennifer McGuire--I just love how she uses BRIGHT colour and acetate :)

Love me some of those Studio Calico hearts and Hero Arts stamps--what a happy combination!

OK! that's it for me, I'll be back very soon with some V.E.R.Y Exciting news :)

Linda xoxo
