Here's the card

Here is a picture of the card that was published in SS Catch Up issue.  I really think that this photo is better than the one in the magazine because you can see some of the shimmer on the cardstock.  Paper Temptress has some of the coolest cardstock.....this is a real small sampling!  Click on her link to the right and take a peek at her wonderful stock.

I've been published!

After such a 'down' day because of the wrecked car, today in the mail I received a complimentary copy of Stamper Sampler Catch Up issue.  That meant only one thing......I had been published!  Woo Hoo!  I'm on page 91.  You can get your own copy at news stands on May 1st.  It is really filled with some great artwork!  Lots of names I know that I noticed in there as well!  I looked everywhere for my photo of the card....couldn't find....maybe tomorrow!

Sad Day.......

Last night wasn't good for us.  My Husband was coming home from running an errand after work and a drunk driver (going too fast on the freeway) ran into him and we're pretty sure our beautiful new Shelby is totaled.  ;-(   God was watching over Ray......the car is toast but he is okay!  The 'before' picture was when we got the new spoiler painted and installed.

Cut Borders

Welcome to a beautiful Saturday.  As a Technique Junkie designer, we always see the tutorials several months in advance. We are assigned several techniques as well as several we pick of our own. I didn't get to work on this technique yet called Cut Borders. So easy and really fun!

I love how this card came out. The stamp set (shells) is by Stampin Up. The words are computer generated. The blue paper to the side is from Paper Temptress and boy oh is absolutely wonderful. Just a hint of sparkle and perfect for making you think of sparkling sand!

A card!

I needed a baby card today for a shower.  I saw this type of card on Taylored Expressions (I think) and thought it was really cute but I had no onesie stamp.  So, I found a Onesie clipart and made do.  It was fun matching the printer ink to the paper I had.  Easy too! 

It may look like I've not been busy but I have.  I've been filming a number of techniques for the Technique Junkie newsletter and can't share those cards until the technique is published! 

Hoping to really get back into the stamping though.  I need to get a lot done for my sale in the fall!
