And yet more cards!!

For the most part all of these cards were inspired by other consultants in one way or another - either a direct copy or even as I reminder of "hey, I have that stamp set!!  Enjoy!!

These two were inspired by fellow consultant Maureen O'Sullivan.  Using up some old Aspen paper.

wintery white

Wanted to play with white on white today - no snow yet here but it's coming fast I'm sure!!  Here's my attempt at an all white (ish) card.

Just a wee bit of bling and some silvery vellum for contrast.  Enjoy!!

First Digital Layout

Just had to try my hand at digital scrapbooking since Close to my Heart is offering a free JPG of a layout.  Played around with the paper and layout choices for a bit and then after that it was easy to add embellishments, journaling and just play around.  I'm still a big fan of my paper in my hands, using my stamps and moving things around physically but was still lots of fun just sitting at the puter creating.  I just might have to do that again!!!

Til next time...

Ya, that's right, I"m back...

After a wee life adjustment, change of plans, future looks different now, break from scrapping, I'm going to try and get myself back in gear and be creative again.  Signed back up with Close to my Heart last month.  Was hard not having my hands on all those goodies!!  I don't have a CTMH website yet but plan to soon so my long distance friends can still get their hands on these wonderful products.  For now you can view the catty online at  .  New one soon to be released.  I myself cannot wait!!
