It's my official return to crafting and blogging after battling a severe period of depression. If you are a member of The Crafting in The Stamping Nook Facebook Group, you've seen the details about my absence and struggles. I'm over the hump now and returning to crafting -- a very powerful form of therapy for me! And, it is a great time to return -- the "holiday" mini catalog is out and it is Sale-A-Bration time! I was so excited to open my box of new supplies and start using them right away.
This card features the Peaceful Deer bundle and a lot of the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper / Patterned Paper (currently free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration). This is a quick and easy card to make because the DSP does most of the work, so it was the perfect card to make as I get back into the swing of things.
