I didn't disappear all together completely.  I have been over on Instagram posting photos because it's a bit quicker and I can do it on the run.
Won't you come see My Instagram Page ?
Crafting has not stopped, but neither has life :)
Love you to you all!

I'm Back!

Hello Friends!
Remember Me?  HaHa, probably not!
Wow, 2015 had some pretty crazy ups and downs for my family.  I am working on typing up a summary of how the year went after May of 2015.  (That seems to be when I ''dropped of the face of the earth!" lol)

When I get it finished I will post a link in my regular blog post and let you all know where to go to read it.  It won't be a regular post, but I will make it a page on the blog to keep it separate so if anyone doesn't care to read it...they don't have to.  :-)

On to more fun stuff!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I have been playing around with a ''new to me'' die that I found in the clearance isle at one of the craft stores here in town.
It's the "Where Women Cook" Milk Carton Box die by Sizzix. (item # 559196)  It was marked down from $29.99 to $9.99!  Nice!

Here are some of the little boxes I made with this gem!

I left the bottoms open so that candy and prizes can be put inside and then I will close them up.

I think they are just too cute!
What do you think?
The possibilities are endless with this die.  I can't wait to try out other ideas!

Until next time my friends,
The Traveling Ladybug

Welcome Baby

I've been offline for a while, but I've not stopped crafting! 

My latest project was a gift for our new Youth Pastor and his wife. They recently had a beautiful baby girl and have decorated her room with Dr. Seuss decor.

This is what I made for little baby Ginny...

Puppy says, "Happy Birthday"...

Saturday is my Supervisor's birthday and this is the card I made for her...

She loves her weenie dogs :)  So I thought this card would be just right for her.

I hope everyone has a great weekend !

A wedding card...

A couple weeks ago a friend of ours got married and so I had an opportunity to make them a card.  Of course I had to use my silhouette!  I cut out the words ''happy I Do day'' from Nena cardstock and adhered them with tombow mono multi glue.  The burlap is actually a burlap paper made by DCWV.  I love it!  The butterflies are from an embosslit made by StampinUp and the leaves are a punch by Martha Stewart.
Personally I think the photo looks a little on the green side, but in true life the paper and butterflies were turquoise ( the wedding colors).

I really enjoyed making this card and hope the newlyweds enjoyed their beautiful day.

Hugs, Michelle
