I am back again -- keep me honest!

Hey all -- I have been lousy at this, I know. I really, really should be a better blogger.
About 6 months ago, my computer crashed -- and with my DH out of work, we didn't jump to buy another. He did try to fix it. He went to great lengths, replacing the power supply and all -- but we fear that there was some damage to the CPU or motherboard, and frankly, we were not wanting to put more energy into it.

So -- we are making do with one computer, and surprisingly, I am loving it!

Recently, he and I have both been tapped for some work -- me, amazingly, because I put NOTHING into getting it... these are two sets of folks that I worked with/for about 10 years ago who called me up -- and DH is starting a new career and got an incredible break. Please think good thoughts for DH who is beginning to work in the field of Intellectual Properties with an absolutely brilliant inventor. It is a one month trial position, and with his hard work and your good thoughts and prayers, we are hoping it will be extended beyond that.

Anyway -- on to the card!

I have two baby cards that I just have to get out, and after MUCH ado, I got to assemble them. Since they are going to folks who don't know each other and are in different countries, I felt comfortable making two that were the same.

I am using a retired hostess set from Stampin' Up! Lilykate paper by Basic Grey, and Stampin' Up! cardstock... I love to color with my watercolor pencils, and the vine is a very cool sizzix die-cut using my Big Shot. Love that machine! I also used the sizzlet tag die-cut from Stampin' Up! to cut out the stamped image of the pea. Isn't this fun?! I promise to post more soon...
