Isn't it time we got together? *SFYTT*

I thought this was a fitting title, seeing that I haven't been here for a while. Shame on me! I forgot to mention in my last post that my kids have been out of school since before Christmas and finally went back today! It made me sad to send them back, but it was time. Time for them to get back to structure, learning, recess, etc. Meanwhile, I haven't done a single crafty, creative thing! So here I am! I am sorry I was gone so long and because of my absence, I am really behind in getting thank-you cards made, etc. I had a friend call me yesterday saying that she needed a card and another friend needs me to make a couple of cards that I will be teaching at her SIL's church function. My vacation is officially over! LOL!



Today's card uses January's SFYTT sketch. We watched "Alice in Wonderland" while my kids were out of school and it really made me want to get my Alice stamps out. This will be going to a special friend who I haven't seen for quite a while.

The image was colored with Prismacolor and Copic markers. I decided to make the focal image a tag so that I would have a nice place to add some ribbon. The clock embellishment was the perfect touch. It is my last one, so I think a shopping trip over at StarLit Studio is in order.




I was proud of myself that I actually put "the last one" onto a project without replenishing first. I am making so much progress these days! The paper is from my box of K & Co. that I love. I tried to use some patterns that I haven't used before. The color combo seemed fitting for Mr. Rabbit in his little coat and vest. I added some glass glitter to the accordion medallion for some sparkle. The stitching was the finishing touch. I have to head to the post office today to get some bills out, so I will send this off.

It felt good, but weird to sit down and stamp. I really didn't know where to begin and just sat there for a minute or two. I shouldn't take such long breaks. They aren't good for the mojo.

Rowan will be one year old on Thursday. I just sat and held him this morning while he had his bottle and cried. I can't believe he is already one. It seemed like yesterday I was anticipating his arrival. It has been fun seeing him grow and develop and his sweet personality is priceless. I love him so much!

P.S. Remember, this month's sketch is sponsored by The Cat's Pajamas. Also, if you have forgotten the details of the new "revamped" SFYTT program, you can find out all about it on Jen's Blog. Thanks for fluttering by!

Great card!! Love how you used Jen's sketch and no lack of mojo/slow moving mojo showing here at all!

I can so appreciate your wonderful time with Rowan this morning. I have many such memories treasure in my heart. Even to this day with my kids being 10 and 12 I still watch them when they sleep at night sometimes and drink in their precious faces and how their lives have touched and shaped mine in so many amazing ways. Give your little guy a snuggle for me :)

Amazing job. Not colors I would put together but they work so well. Love the ribbon and clock detail.
Trust me, you are doing great. I haven't been able to create since Nov. so I am worried about my MOJO but that is what happens when you are planning a move right after the holidays.
Happy Birthday Rowan!!! This year did go by so fast. My little guy will be one on the second of Feb. I am already crying over it.
