Where Has Michelle Been????

HELLO THERE!!!!!!!! SOOOO much has happened in the (over a) year since I have posted last. I have been doing a little crafting, but mainly just last-minute birthday cards, which I, of course, forget to take a picture of. Now that I can actually walk into my stamp room again, I have vowed to be a better blogger, or maybe just post more than once a year! I have been working crazy hours and STILL going to more and more doctor's appointments. Oh, and I COMPLETELY fell in love with My Digital Studio! OMG you HAVE TO HAVE this product!!!!!!!
Since I needed a swift kick in the butt to start crafting again, I decided to sign up for a swap on SCS (here). This month is birthday cards, which I am ALWAYS needing, so let's go! I also decided to do something WAY outside my comfort level - vintage. This is my first attempt at vintage, so be nice! Of course, I forgot to take a picture before I put them in the envelope to mail, so this one was my "reject". I embossed the sentiment in silver, and that just looked bad, so the others, I just used Silver Encore, and it looked a TON better.
Stamp Sets: Medallion BG, Occasional Quotes (New Catty!), Sanded BG, Tiny Tags
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Silver Encore
Paper: Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Very Vanilla Satin ribbon, Silver cord, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Air Art Tool, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker (I splattered the ribbon with this for a distressed look... hard to see), Stampin' Dimensionals
Punches: Eyelet Border, Jewelry Tag
Big Shot: Backgrounds 1 Texture Plate

My next creation is the invitation for our annual neighborhood block party. I used MDS - LOVE IT!!!

The last for today is a birthday card, of course, for a co-worker. I used MDS for the majority of the card, and then printed it and stamped the sentiment.
Stamp Sets: Well Scripted, Medallion BG Digital
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Summertime Splendor, Vintage Overlays, Cherry Cobbler (card base)
Accessories: Half Pearls (in flower centers), Rhinestone (over "I" in birthday)
I need to figure out a template for posting MDS creations... something to think about today at work. :)
