Computer issues

Well the computer kindly told us the hard disk was about to crash.   Yeah, that's not good.  So, looks like I'm on a hiatus until we find a new computer.   Sigh.   Hope to be back on soon.

Thanks card

This may look like a valentine, but it's meant to be a thank you card.  I picked up a new printed paper and added it in to the pile I had.  It's the pink plaid.  On the opposite side are the flowers.  Love Doodlebug paper!

Tried out a new way to use my paper pieces on this card.  Also added some white punched hearts and a die cut word in white.  More sequins finished it off.

Impression Obsession Make It Take It

One of the wonderful parts of having a stamp store nearby  is the free Make It Take Its every Wednesday at Angela's Happy Stamper.  I stopped by and made this card.  A perfect birthday card for this season!

Valentine with Dies

Ever start a card with low expectations?  That is how this one started.  But, the end results were a pleasant surprise.  I think it all came together pretty well.  The word die is actually cut twice.  The first was done all in black and then the second one on the printed paper.  It makes the words stand out a bit more.  Still having fun with sequins, as you can see.

Continuing with colorful valentines!  This one includes a stamp by Magenta.

Well, this was a fun one to do.  Definitely a good one for using printed scraps!  Embossed scraps as well.  There are lots of bright colors on this card, but I think it works.  It left me feeling cheerful!
