This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

It is snowing again...

There is no place we have to be so it is great! We only have 4 inches so far, so that is very manageable. It is a good excuse to stamp, surf the blogs, and update my blog. I promised some Valentine cards and so here you go!

I think this one is my favorite so far. I made this one with In Colors.
All Stampin' Up! supplies on this one:

Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Crushed Curry card stock, and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink. Stampin' Up!'s "I (Heart) Hearts" stamp set.
The(friend to friend) stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Full Heart, Heart to Heart punch, and Movers and Shakers Heart die, Rich Razzleberry Polka dot ribbon and of course Stampin' Dimensionals. I use SU's Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder to emboss the heart.

Really simple and all Stampin' Up! supplies:
Real Red and Whisper White card stock, Asian Artistry Hostess stamp set. Old Olive and Basic Black Classic ink, Small Heart and Scallop Border Punch, Mat Pack, piercing tool and Stampin Dimensionals.

As always thanks for visiting.

Use it or lose it........

Another card done with old supplies from my stash. The sand dunes and shore birds are unmounted rubber and I have no information about them recorded. If anyone recognizes them, I would love to credit the manufacturer. I just used some torn card stock, Basic Black ink, and sponged the edges with Close To Cocoa ink. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Season of Friendship. Thanks for lookin'!

Another "Nothing New Allowed" card

I am keeping my resolution to use up scraps and older supplies every Monday. I forgot to post this one. I used some Bazzill card stock, some Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla card stock, Light Unto My Path stamp set (retired from SU)with Chocolate Chip ink and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The image is elevated on Dimensionals. Very simple card, but this image remains one of my favorites.

I got a big box of Stampin' Up goodies this week. My first Sale-A-Bration order! I love getting free merchandise with orders! Check out my SU website and see all the wonderful new products. I am working on some valentines for my upcoming workshops, but I won't post them until after the workshops. Thanks for visiting my blog!
