An Oldie but a Goodie

Hello! This card is one I made a couple of years ago at a stamp class at 'Remember When' in Chesterfield, MI. (It's on the corner of my sister Joann's street - how could I resist going there each time I visit my sis?) Back to the card. I liked it a lot, but knew it needed something - but what? I finally decided to use little rhinestones for the center of the flowers and volia - I love it! I just sent it to a dear friend and hope she likes it too. FYI - My sister Susan moved to a new house in Eastpoint, MI and she too, has a shop on the corner of her street! (Paper Tales) I think they are trying to feed my addiction! It's a conspiracy!

I Love My Cuttlebug!

This card is the first one on which I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders, and I love my Cuttlebug! It is so easy to use. I just ordered a few more of the new folders and can't wait to get them in the mail.

The person who is getting this card is really 'Truly Amazing', as she has just adopted a teenage son. I've always known her to be a kind and generous person, and she has proven it again!

Happy Easter

Hello! This is my first Easter card. I've been thinking about using my crimpers lately and the idea for this card just came to me out of the blue! (See card for proof of the blue.) I love the Zoofari set - in particular, this stamp, and hadn't used it until now. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and crimped the background paper. The fake brads are from Joann's $1 rack, and the sentiment is from Michael's $1 basket. Happy Easter!
