Happy New Year - I know, I am really really late!

So I have been away for quite some time.  So last year, when I disappeared, my dream came true and I finally got a job working from home.  And let me tell you, I could not be happier about it!  But I had some trouble finding time for crafting and that was mostly because I need to turn my craft work space into my office space.  Who else works from home? Have you found a balance between your work and your crafting and blogging?  That's my goal for this year.

So as a welcome back, I'm going to share a card that I made to welcome a baby into the world! One of my bosses was blessed with a beautiful baby boy in January.  This is the card that I made for him and his wife.

The base of the card is craft paper and then I used some colorful scraps and a few pieces of ribbon behind the white cardstock.  I stamped the Welcome message onto some bazzil cardstock, which have I mentioned I love bazzil cardstock?  It has totally spoiled me, I can never go back to cheap cardstock.  And then the highlight of the card is those cute little animals!  They are Ki Puffies which I found at Michael's.  They have several different packs of these and they are all adorable.

The inside of the card is stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp which reads "it's the little things that make life big".  And I have to stay, I just recently purchased several Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous sets and they are great!  They stamp beautifully and I love all the quotes.

 In fact, here's a picture of my recent purchase of stamps:

The four sets of stamp I got are great.  And the little zippered mouth creature is a gift card holder by Basic Grey!  I think he costs like three bucks, so I couldn't pass it up.

So that's it for today.  It feels good to be back!  I hope to talk to you all soon and until next time - Happy Scrapin!
