Blogging Again! (No REALLY back)

Okay, I've said it before and didn't follow through. But now I'm really motivated and committed to blog about my creative fun from the Raspberry Room. I've recently moved and settled into my new home with my best friend (hubby). Dan (for those that don't know that's hubby/best friend) insisted we could only buy a home that had a "proper" room for my studio. Gotta love that man! Of course he did have a motivation, as he thought I would be impossible to live with if I didn't have my art "therapy" room.

In any case I'm back and plan on posting on a regular basis. Part of my motivation is the fresh start in our new home. The other part is reading my son's newly established blog. Reading and feeling the excitement about his passion really pushed me to move forward with my own. BTW, if you love a challenge, don't mind getting "dirty" and enjoy staying physically fit, then his blog is a great read and can be found here http://dirtybirddiary.blogspot.com/.

Okay this post was spontaneous, and I didn't prepare for the post, so I'll share with you a darling thank you card I recently received from http://laurelbeard.wordpress.com/. Thanks Laurel, loved it!

Until next time, which WILL be SOON,
Live Well, Laugh Often & Love Much, Jean ~

January 20, 2013
Happy New Year my friends. I hope you all have a happy healthy 2013. Today I have a little winter card for you.  I've recently joined a fun site at http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/  .  Wow, what a great group of stampers there.  They are so friendly and helpful. Well they have a different challenge group for each day of the week and you can join as few or as many as you want.  This challenge was to make any greeting card with snow or snow people.  I just love the little kiddo in this Stampin' Up set called "Winter Wonderland".  Of course I had to add hair so one looked like a little girl. Cardstock is SU whisper white and summer starfruit. All other stamps, also from SU, are Loads of Love (trees), Happy Winter (snowman) and the sentiment is from the Winter Memories set. A touch of dazzling diamonds and a few rhinestones, done.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to be back soon to share some of the Christmas cards made for 2012.  Can't rush into these things ya know.
Til next time, Live well, Laugh Often & Love Much
