Finally back in the swing of things

My wonderful husband and I got to go on our first vacation in over two years at the beginning of June.  It was such a wonderful trip and we had a great time.  I was VERY needed and really helped both of us get away and feel refreshed.  We were gone for almost 2 weeks and between getting ready for vacation, being on vacation, and then catching up now that I am back it seems like I haven't had any time for crafting or blogging in a LONG time.  I am finally feeling like things are settling down and I have time to devote back to my wonderful blog and blog followers.  So how about some catching up!  We have had two projects posted over at Frosted Designs these last few weeks that I haven't blogged about.  I usually like to make layouts if possible, but May and June are chocked FULL of birthdays, anniversary, holidays, etc. for my family so I made some cards these weeks.

First we were supposed to use at least 5 buttons on a project.  Some of my friends just had a new baby and I was sending them a gift so I figured that the "Cute as a Button" theme went well with our challenge for the week.  I used the Little Red Scrapbook April kit for the majority of this card.

Second we had to make a project using glitter!  I love using little accents of glitter on my projects, but I wanted to really showcase the glitter on this one.  I covered the thickers I used on this anniversary card (for my husband) with Icicle Stickles.  I love the look it gave them.  I also used Waterfall Stickles to add the blue dots along the edges of the orange patterned paper.
