Hello, I'm Still Alive (and thanks for checking, LOL)

Big thanks to my wonderful downline, Anna, who sent me an email today to make sure I was OK since I hadn't posted in AGES (sorry about that). We went on a road trip over Easter, covering around 1,800 kms all up and came home to messed up Foxtel, messed up internet connection (read as NO internet for 2 days) and the whole family (well, there's only 3 of us) ending up sick - so NOT fun, especially for poor little Harrison.
In some good news though, during the brief nano second the computer was up & running, I found out that I won some Blog Candy - yay for me. A big thank you goes out to Emily - I am so looking forward to receiving my new goodies. By the way, it's Emily's birthday today, so drop by her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!
Also, BIG THANKS go out to Erin who sent me out a HEAP of Inspiration Sheets. These are way cool and something I wish SU would bring out for us here in Australia (somehow I doubt it though, as it appears that they are being discontinued in the States). Specific to a stamp set, Inspiration Sheets have 6 samples using the set, with a complete 'receipe' so you can recreate each one.
I haven't had a lot of spare time to get anything much that's stamping related done, but this is what I did get done. The first is a birthay card I did for my BIL's (for ease of explanation) birthday. I used my Papertrey Ink - Papertray set and did a CASE of Nichole's sample - so simple and effective
Supplies Used: (All SU unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy Classic)
Cardstock: Craft, W/White, NQN
Accessories: 1-1/4 & 1-3/8 RD punches, dimensionals, sponges

This is Harrison in the Bunny Ears that we made at Playgroup. How cute is does he look in those ears? (I know, I'm biased).
Supplies Used: White Paper, cotton balls, sticky tape & glue!

Well, that's about it for my papercrafting to date. I promise I will have more over the coming weeks, really

I mailed your "candy" a few days ago, I hope it doesn't take too long to get there! SOrry it took me awhile to get to a 'real' post office.
