Completely Non-Traditional Valentine

I have seen so much red and pink lately that I just couldn't stand to do another red and pink valentine card. So I decided to work on a boy valentine and found THIS one by Chrissyd723 (on SCS). I absolutely love this card and just had to see what I could do.
I hope you like it!
As always, thanks for looking!

No pain, no pretties

I saw this wonderful card on SCS made by "Shadow Mill" and knew I just had to try. . .

It looks fairly simple from this angle huh??? Take a glance at the next picture and maybe you can see why my back and neck were hurting by the time I was done.

Each of the little raised flowers was cut (with an exacto knife) out of another piece of the same DSP. Then I attached them with dementionals. It was a little time consuming but definately worth it once you are looking at the final product!
As always, thanks for looking!

Have I told you lately. . .

Did I mention how giddy I am about the new catalog? If I didn't I should have, and if I did. . . well, I'm going to do it some more. It has definately revitalized my mojo and I've spent two nights of the last 4 in my craft space getting some new cards together. At first (see previous post) I was only able to case pretty cards. . . but now. . . .

Maybe they aren't the prettiest cards, but I'm proud of them. I'm getting extremely excited about my upcoming new catalog party and a valentines party (thanks Marcie).

As always thanks for looking!

New Catalogs are Coming!!!

I'm so excited about the new catalogs! I just got my copies in today and absolutely love the new stamps, papers and supplies. I can't wait to share with everyone!!!

If you live locally we'd love to have you for the New Catalog Open House next Tuesday (January 20th, 2009)!!! If you don't live locally we'd honestly love to have you too, but I wasn't sure you'd be able to make the trip :)

I've been working on some cards for the open house and here is one of my favorites.

It is a complete case from atomicbutterfly but I just completely love all that she does and besides, how could you NOT want to make a card like this?

I keep thinking one day, maybe . . . just maybe I'll design my own card and not copy someone else's work. But with so many beautiful cards out there, what's a busy girl to do???

Watch for new updates from the new catalog coming soon!

As always thanks for looking!
