Purple Posies

Happy Thanksgiving week, friends!

Just thought I'd do a quick post with the birthday card I made for my SIL this year.  She's quite a bit younger than my husband and me and is a bit bohemian, so I tried to incorporate her personality into this card...  The background paper makes it a little artsy, the flowers and colors keep it feminine, and the twine and pearls are a classic touch.

Thanks for visiting!

Pink Power

Sharing a hot pink card made for my SIL's birthday back in August.  These early "back to crafting after baby" cards are super simple!  But even the simplest hand made card lets the recipient know you care enough to take the time to make it.

On a side note, pink has been on my mind a lot lately since two dear friends have been diagnosed with breast cancer within a few weeks of each other.  Remember to self exam, schedule regular mammograms when you're of age, and save the boobies!

Thanks for the visit!

It's Been a Long Time...

...about 10 months, in fact!

Where have I been?  Well, you see, there's been a lot happening here in the squirrel's nest over the last year or so.  In June 2013, Mr. Squirrel joined the nest.  In June 2014, Baby Squirrel arrived!  Yes, it's been a whirlwind year full of night sickness and being the most tired I've ever been in my life, then mommy-mode, and now working-mommy-mode!  While I was pregnant, I had NO creative mojo...none, nada, zilch!  But, I've been slowly getting back to the craft room inbetween feedings, diaper changes, and cuddles....oh, and that pesky work thing.

My posts will be simpler, but I'm excited to be sharing my creations once again!

First up is a card that I made for my BIL's birthday.  A bit of Tim and a bit of fun make for a simple masculine card.

Thanks for the visit!
