Good afternoon everyone!

I'm finally back in my happy place and creating again.  Shoulder surgery took me away for awhile and I just lost my mojo.  





Here is my first card using all Stampin' Up! products in a long time.  I absolutely love the sentiment and should say this every morning.   It is from the stamp set, "A Good Day", and printed on So Saffron paper.  It is adhered onto Grapefruit Grove Nature's Twine.  By the way, if any of you are interested, all of the products used are currently available from the catalogue. 

The flower is made using Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and the Daisy Punch.  The leaves are Old Olive and Garden Green, and I used the Flourish thinlits dies.  

The background is Night of Navy and the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, using the negative side.  

The card base itself is So Saffron cardstock and is a standard A2 size (4.25 x 5.5).

I hope you like it!

Happy Saturday, everybody :-)

I can't believe how long it has been since I wrote a blog.  A few great things have happened to me since my last one.

First, I landed a great full time job-FINALLY!  Now I can afford my hobby again.  It's actually with a company I used to do business with years ago at my old job.  The office is even down the street from my old job-about 2 blocks apart!!  Weird-I did a complete circle.  Anyway, I'm really enjoying being back to work, even though it takes away from my crafting time.  LOL

Second, I was just about to say goodbye to Stampin' Up! when I received a wonderful email that someone joined me.  She's also a hobbiest, but that's okay.  If she stays with me, that would be wonderful, if not, it was really nice to be able to say I had a team member for a little while:-)

So this is what i've worked on that strictly uses Stampin' Up! products.  I have all this wonderful stuff that I think I get overwhelmed with ideas and just can't get them produced.  But this time I did.  Here are two I made today.


I made this one for a woman who ordered from me recently.  This is only my second order that hasn't been from a friend :-)  I hope she likes it.


This one is for my new team member.  Lots of different techniques on this one.  

Well, that's really all I wanted to share today.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!
