*Bad Blogger*

Well, I've been a bad blogger... I celebrate my anniversary and don't come back to post any creations. Part of the problem is that with the start of school I have been either busy or too pooped to craft. I like to have a small stash of cards to share with you all, and that stash is getting very small. After today's post, there is only one more card!

I had really hoped that I would have been more creative on Saturday night when Tracy, Shannon and Allison were over, but I think we all spent more time talking than crafting (except Shannon who managed to pull of a tonne of 6X6 pages!). I managed to make two cards... one was a sample for a custom order I am doing (and honestly, I hate it) and the second card will be on the blog sometime this week.

But, after tonight, I should have a little time, somewhere in there! Tonight is the Welcome Back BBQ at Matthew's school and I have been in charge of organizing it. Thankfully I have some people helping me... I've been more the orchestrator. I will be at the school from 4 until 8 or so tonight making sure everything goes well.

I don't know why this year is so different... it's not like we're any more busy than any other September in recent history. It's not cuz I'm old, I hope! I think it's mostly that I'm not using my down time to craft. My mojo isn't strong at the moment so it's easier to not craft. How sad.

I do have bad news... unfortunately, my information on this card is no where to be found... so we'll be guessing at the items I used! I might get it right!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, River Rock; Classic Crest white
*Ink: white Gelly Roll pen, Stewart Superior Black Document
*Images: Lizzie Anne Designs, Stampin' Up
*Tools: Marvy Giga and Mega Scallop Circle punches, coloured pencils, odourless mineral spirits, blending stump, Cuttlebug and D'vine Swirl embossing Folder, Stampin' Up! Word Window punch

I know that this card used a sketch and I *think* it was a Splitcoast Stampers Sketch.... but hey, I'm without my notes.

Cute card and certainly good for an extra Bingo number on Monday, when we begin the final round.
