I'm back!!

Hello, friends! Long time no see... I missed you!!
I'm starting to get around things, back home after the Spellbinders Retreat, however hard it is 'cause I think the jetlag is kicking in! We didn't have time for things as trivial as a jetlag back there, with our schedule full to the brim and lots of excitement, but as I'm now settling back into the routine, my system is begging me to slow down for the time being :)

Heck yes, that's my plan for the coming months! You know that I'm a busy crafter and I do like it this way, but upon taking this new amazing opportunity that being on the Spellbinders Design Team is, I feel the need to concentrate more on learning and trying new things, growing in my skills.
Hence, I will be making redundancies in my existent assignments, stepping down from a couple DT's, and reorganizing the way I blog.

There will be more of other things than cards - scrapbook layouts and mixed media, these will be also more technique-laden and more educational. At least I hope so... bear with me! ;)
I also hope that you will continue on this journey with me, as I'm excitedly taking another path... you're the best!

One more thing that you'll notice, is that I won't be including lists of supplies under my projects any more. I was often getting emails from my readers, asking for them anyway, which made me wonder if they are being noticed at all.
I will be highlighting the supplies that I find important, in the description of the project, and whenever you would like to find out more, feel free to email me and I'll be happy to help. Sounds good? :)

With the boring part done, I would like to share a card, fresh out of the oven!
(and kudos to those who are still with me, after that elaborate intro! lol)

I put it together with the papers from My Mind's Eye's On The Bright Side, Waltzingmouse Stamps (Asian Gardens & Fancy Flourishes - Scallops & Dots sets), May Arts ribbon, Basic Grey stitched brad, and I used the following Spellbinders™ die templates:
S4-335 Star Circles
S4-324 Ribbon Banners
S5-086 Bitty Blossoms (for the yellow flower)
LF-005 Grand Peony Creations (for the salmon flower)

I'm entering this card into Card Patterns challenge 158 (sketch), The Ribbon Reel challenge #24 (colour inspiration), and RCC46 - Anything goes.

I'll be back tomorrow, with the CASE Study post! Mwah,
