Phew!! I had to do some dusting around here and getting rid of some cobwebs before I could get in here and do this posting!! It's been awhile and I've missed yall!! Due to some family issues, I've been having a sort of pity party for myself, but I finally decided that I've overstayed my welcome and I had to leave, so I'm back!!! Well for a few months and then I'll be away for a bit because we're MOVING!! We're not sure where yet...gotta love the military lol but we know we have to be there by Jan 3rd. But anyways, enough about me and my glorious life, lets get on to this weeks challenge at CRAFT US CRAZY!
Our challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES and The Pixie Cottage at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More is sponsoring us!! Michelle supplied our DT with some beautiful stamps, and I was lucky enough to work with Hannah sitting on bench, which is now my absolute favorite stamp!! I knew immediately WHO I wanted to make it for, but I didn't know how I wanted to do it, so I went on the hunt for some inspiration!! AND BOY DID I FIND IT!!! So this card was inspired by Anne at Anne's Creative World!! I love finding inspiration, its amazing what creative juices it'll stir up in you when you find that perfect project! I love easel cards, but when I seen Anne's tag behind the image, I thought that was such a great idea, and something I had never done before. So Anne, if you see this, thank you for inspiring this project!!
So we hope you'll join us at Craft Us Crazy this week, and don't forget you'll have an awesome chance at winning a $10 Gift Voucher from Michelle's Scrapbooking & More!

Hope this card inspires you in some way and as always, thanks for looking!!
