Back Home

Finally!  Actually that was a couple of days ago, but I think it took me all week to get over the drive.  Seriously, I just unpacked the car earlier today and have been working on some deadlines.  In the meantime, I just wanted to say how much I missed posting and chatting with you.  From my last card I noticed there were lots of (unexpected) questions about the bird and the flourish I used – in fact there was a little guessing lottery going on in the comments.  Wait no more!  You all know my love for K and Company papers and embellishments  . . . so, both the bird and the flourish were some acetate embellishments from a K & Company packet that I picked up at Michaels.   The artist is Susan Winget; there are 40 acetate and paper adornments in the package and I simply fell head over heels – just the perfect thing to layer on when you need a quick card.  I didn’t have many supplies available to me while gone, so these certainly fit the bill.  In fact, the birdcage on my card today is another example of one of the acetates.  Mystery solved!!

I pulled together a quick card using Spellbinders™ Arched Window One with the new crosses background from Spellbinders™ Reverence M-Bossabilities Folder – Side B.  This is another for my slightly depleted stash.  I stamped “For Our Pastor” from an Our Daily Bread Designs set called Fellowship Sentiments – it fit perfectly on the new Spellbinders™ Framed Tags One.

Thanks so much for your patience while I was out of pocket.  Happy Crafting!!

    Oh Becca! How lovely! I wasn’t on of those people voting on where the bird came from, but I was wondering! Thank you for clearing up the mystery! I will have to find some of those wonderful acetates! Your cards are lovely! Both of them and I am also going to have to get the crosses embossing folder! Such an enabler you are. . . . .LOLReplyCancel

    I told my hubbie this morning should have an email from Becca and sure enough! So glad you are back. You are the highlight of my email opening each and every day you post. this is very pretty. I bought the crosses die so guess I need the Embossing folder as well after seeing how pretty it is. Thanks for sharing and WELCOME HOME, girl!!

  • Marlene IacuzziFebruary 12, 2013 - 6:14 am

    So often I will see a new Spellbinders die and think-don’t think I need that one. And then you incorporate it into a card and all of these beautiful possibilities come to be. I hope Spellbinders rewards you for your talents. You are certainly responsible for a lot of my purchasing. Thanks for this one, too.ReplyCancel

    Happy Valentine’s Day Becca! Your gift of doing these kits has been a present each time to all who saw them online, as well as those who ordered them. Every thing in life comes and goes at some point, and there is no set rule on the time limit. The fact that you took on this enormus task and offered it to everyone, is a gift all by its self. And I’m sure everyone who received them on their door step, felt like it was a gift just for them individually, from you. And I’m sure it was, because you do everything with love and the Spirit of God, and it is felt within. Am just sooooo glad to hear that we will all continue to enjoy your blog creations, and to know that you are spending more of your time in your craft room, doing what you love to do, and share with all of us. A big heartfelt thanks to you and for being able to carry on life’s journey with you in so many ways. Many more blessings to you as always.ReplyCancel
