You and Me

Hello friends - long time, no see!  I'm desperately trying to get back in the habit of blogging and it just hasn't happened yet!  I've been making cards behind the scenes - some DT projects I can show you in a bit and some that will be published later this year so I can't show those for a while.  

Anyway, I was able to play along with the Papertrey blog hop this month after a long absence and I'm so glad I could do it!  This month's theme was "high gloss" and I decided to stamp some flowers from the Beautiful Blooms set.  
I've been spending a lot of time cleaning up/out my craft room lately and came upon this set I haven't inked up in quite a while.  I stamped the large flowers and heat embossed them on some fun red and yellow papers, cut them out and added them atop a card I made using my new Mon Ami kit from Basic Grey.  I just adore this kit and feel I will be using it often!  I finished the card with some glossy (?) sequins and a mirrored, vintage button.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Hello friends!  I am so excited to announce today that I have been selected to be on the design team for The Twinery!  Pinch me!  I have loved their beautiful twine for years and was just tickled when I was chosen for this year's team!  I can't wait to show you all sorts of crafty goodness with all of that twine!  :)

I'm on a never-ending quest to clean up my craft room (I honestly think I won't be finished until I can get some storage shelves for my closet and finally unpack the boxes from when we moved) and this card is one of the results.  I was cleaning off my desk and found these two panels of coordinating paper and thought they'd look pretty layered on a card.  I drew the "joy" sentiment in pencil and then stitched it on one of the panels using yummy mandarin twine and finished the card with some coordinating brads and a big bow.

Here is the rest of the 2014 team - I hope you can visit them and send some love their way, too!
