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!

I have a couple of cards to share today. The first I made for my sister Chris' birthday. I just love red and black with Kraft. The colors did not photograph that well this time but I was too lazy to take the photo again.
The colors are more vibrant and the scallop is actually SU red Glimmer paper which is very sparkly.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Blue Ribbon and Chic Boutique (ret)
Paper: SU cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake. Scallop- Red Glimmer paper. SU Designer Paper: the musical staff from the retired Newsprint paper pack, and the floral print from the Bella Bleu pack, also retired.
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Real Real Satin ribbon, Fiskars border punch. Nestibilities.

This second card I made for a workshop make and take. We haven't had any snow yet this year but working with the snowman makes me want some.  I love this cute stamp set and and was inspired by this great easel card by jeny_79 at SplitcoastStampers.

These are great! I love that eiffel tower and punched border on that first one. Really cool card. That snowman card is so cute!! I just love that circle with the bigger scallops. What a fun idea to use cotton for the snow.
