So Behind on Blogging

Hi everyone!
Yes I am really, really behind on blogging lately.   I have tons of things I want to post - it's just a matter of getting around to it, right?   So that's where I am right now - playing catch up.   Awhile back I won some fabulous blog candy on Heidi Van Laar's blog and I wanted to post a picture of all the fabulous goodies she sent me...

Is that amazing or what?   And I finally got around to playing with it all yesterday.  Check it out!

I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to the shabby chic style, but I gave it a whirl and came up with these two cards.   I dug into my stash of vintage postcards for the photo card and I added the pretty flower, leaves, ribbon and dew drops from my blog candy gift.   The card with the keys was pretty simple too.  I covered the chipboard keys with acrylic paint and then mod podged on (spell check says that isn't a word) the glitter.   I had a great time playing AND I am still sparkling from the glitter!  :o)   If you've never checked out Heidi's blog you can find it here.

Well, that's it for today!   I took a sabbatical from housework yesterday and now I'm really behind.  I hope you all have a great weekend!
Sue :o)
