Thanks so Much!

I decided since it was snowing (again!) I was going to craft!! OK, I don't really need an excuse but...sounds good...right!?

Here are 2 cards using basically the same layout but by turning the card, you get a different look. I really need to move away from this color scheme...1. because I need to learn to use different colors together and 2. because I am running out of this color paper, ribbon, ink ect... (inspired from SCS)

I slid the cardstock up over the edge of the Top Note die to create a small card that I placed on the Ruby Red background. (Thanks to my upline, Heather, for the technique idea!)

Jumping on bandwagon!!

I decided to join the blog bandwagon!! I wanted a fun place to update and share products and projects with my Stampin' Up! customers and friends. Of course there may be an occasional brag about my boys or life in general!!

So sit back and enjoy the ride!!
