From the Bottom of My Heart

As I reflect back on the last six months of my deployment I think about how it flew by so fast.  The saying, "time flies when you're having fun" holds true to me.

It's been real, it's been fun, but it hasn't always been real fun.  I'm just happy that Stampin' Up! is a portable business and hobby!

This card is for you, my stamping friend, my visitors, my subscribers, my family, and my friends.  My deepest sincerity for thinking of me and sending me your thoughts, prayers, and care packages.

There could be no better stamp set to use use when giving thanks.  To me, it gives off an old-fashioned feeling when inked on paper.  It's perfect for giving thanks.

I used the Small Heart punch to give the word heart a real red emphasis.  I love rhinestones and take any opportunity to put them anywhere on a card to add the extra sparkle.  Leave me a comment and tell me if you have a favorite embellishment.

The only thing I could ever ask for from you is to share me with someone who is new to crafting.  Whether it's making handmade cards, digital cards, hybrid cards, scrapbooking, or just anything crafty.  All you have to do is slick on the gray envelope below and "share the love."  I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart. =)

Little Black Dress

Little Black Dress 1

I received some very exciting news about Stampin’ Up!’s 25 Anniversary in July and I’m excited that I am going to be able to attend the conference!!!   I was so sad months ago when I thought I wasn’t going to be able to go, but I found out last Friday that my job isn’t sending me anywhere!!!  Thereby allowing me to take a trip of a lifetime… well maybe not a lifetime, but it will be for me.  Yayyy!  More to come as the date gets closer.

How often have you heard the fashion industry say, “always have that little black dress in your closet.”  Well, even my Stampin’ Up! supply closet has that little black dress and here it is.  It’s cute as a button and the possibilities are endless!

I used a left over strip of silver glimmer paper (you know I throw nothing away) and used the flower from the petite punch to create a cute belt and add a bit of pop to the dress.  The square lattice embossing folder gave it the finishing touches and I used the Illuminate ink to bring out a slight shimmer on the black card stock.
