Back in the Saddle Again!

Howdy all!  I have been away for quite sometime but I'm BACK!

I sold my restaurant business at the beginning of the month and so I am back to being a Stay-at-home Mom again and it feels GOOD!  So in order to get right back into crafting I thought I'd start back with one of my favs...  a sketch!

The sketch I took inspiration from is Sketch 48 from the Deconstructed Jen blog.

Here is what I did with the sketch...

Lenten Rose Birthday

Supplies: stamps, Flourishes;  patterned papers, BasicGrey;  ink, Memento, Copic;  embossing plate, Cuttlebug;  cardstock, Papertrey Ink, Flourishes;  die cut, Spellbinders;  other, clear embossing powder by Stampendous!.

Feels good to be creating again!  Can't wait to share lots more with you in the up and coming months.



  1. Beautiful card Ally..such pretty stamps and colours.
    I don't know why you sold your restaurant but you sound relieved and I, for one, am so glad to see you again...I've missed you!
    Big hugs xx
