Hello! I hope the New Year has been good to you so far. School starts back today for my DD, so everything goes back to normal for us in just a few hours, and I like normal. :)

Speaking of normal, I kind of slacked off with my blog and and with cardmaking over the past few months, and now I'm ready to get back to it. I'm looking forward to visiting everyone's blogs to see what you all have been up to. :D

I've had the Berry Sweet stamp set for awhile, but had never used the blueberry stamp, so I inked it up, colored it with Copics, and popped it up. I totally CASEd a mini card made by Broni Holcombe that you can see on her blog, Splashes of Watercolor, or on the Timeless Tuesday #185 post on the Flourishes blog, so that I could play along in the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #201, which is to choose a favorite card from any of the 2012 Timeless Tuesday Challenges and be inspired by it. I entered the #185 challenge back in September and I loved making a mini card for it, so I thought it would be fun to make another one. Small cards are no easier for me than large ones, but they are an opportunity for my smaller stamps to have a bigger impact. :)
I stamped the sentiment on the inside, and added a whisper of the blueberry stamp in light blue.

I'm working on a really fun project that should be finished in a few days (as soon as my new die arrives in the mail). In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of a small part of it. Aren't those colors yummy?
