Thanks! (Again)

Good Friday morning! This is one week I am glad the week is just hasn't been real nice to me! Today's card is a thank you card I created for Stef after our first meeting. I had gotten the black and white paper from my DIL and really liked the distressed look to it...thought it would go well with the embossing folder used. The sentiment is from SU and of course I used Nestibilites to frame it. The ribbon was from my Hobby Lobby stash! I just wanted to also let you know that I may not post as often for a week or so. I am on my way to Phoenix on Sunday morning for a work conference. The conference is pretty intense and I don't get much time to myself while out there but will sneak in to see all of you when I can...and hopefully post a few cards that I have made ahead. Have a great day today and as always I appreciate you stopping to see me.

Warm Wishes

Hello all! Today I tried my hand at an image from Stef. Yesterday I had to run out and get some of those awesome images. If you haven't checked them out yet, be sure to. The image I used here was Warm Wishes. I colored it with Copic markers. The paper was cardstock I had purchased at Hobby Lobby during one of their half off sales...I love those sales...a girl can never have enough paper! The embossing folder I used on this card was a Sizzix Snowflakes #3 folder...hmmm don't ask me what that #3 is for cause I haven't got a clue...but it is a pretty folder. I used the circle Nestabilities to cut the circles. The ribbon was purchased at Hobby Lobby at the end of the year last year and I am so glad to find a use for it! I hope your day went well today...I had a rough one but it is always nice to come home and play...cardmaking is like a CALGON takes me away!!! Thanks again so much for stopping by to see me and leaving some love. I appreciate you all.

Season's Greetings

Today is a sweet day for my friend Stef! She has been working hard at creating her own digital stamps and has a few for sale. I couldn't resist the temptation so I ran to get a few. The card base is a Sizzix embossing folder called Poinsettia Corners...I found it so appropriate for Stef's beautiful image. I used Star Dust Stickles to add some bling to the embossing. The image was colored with a combination of Copic and SU markers. I cut out the top layer of the image and pop dotted it to the original colored image to give it a little dimension. The greeting is a collection of stamps purchased from Joanne Fabrics last Christmas. I am really liking how this one turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me...I hope to be able to come see all of you tomorrow.
