Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!! Just a quick post to let you know I'm still alive and well! The Christmas and New Year's holidays were a blast but sooooooooooooo busy!! I need a few more days off to rest up for work , but alas, the work week starts again tomorrow!!

Here is a card inspired by my upline Paula Ballard. She is AMAZING and TALENTED!! So happy to have her as my upline. I created this card for a friend of mine. She's fighting breast cancer and a few of us are going to get together and stamp a huge stack of thank you cards for her, so that she has some to send out. We're going to include the stamps and envelopes as well so that as she's feeling better she can write out some words of thanks and send them out without any hassles.

Thanks for stopping in!

A Note of Thanks

Last night was so much fun for me! I visited with my good friend Paula and we stamped for a few hours. Well, we talked more than we stamped, but it was great! Paula is a true inspiration to me and is the reason I became a demonstrator with Stampin' Up!

The card I created was inspired by one that I saw in the newest SU! magazine. I used my new favourite stamp set, Circle Circus and went with the black and white theme. I LOVE how it turned out! Paula created an awesome birthday card too, that I can't wait to CASE.

Simiply Sketch Challenge #8

Here's a cute little card I created from a sketch challenge by Heather Summers. I'm so thankful for Heather's challenges because being new, I really enjoy getting a "jumpstart" on creating cards. Part of the idea of this card came while I was blog hopping. I saw a beautiful card created by Andrea Walford and loved how she used the Sweet Pea paper without the need for stamping! I added a little sparkle with the brads.. Hope you like it!

Colour Challenge #7 from Simply Stars!

Life has been so busy lately, that I haven't had a lot of time for stamping. Here is a card I created from the colour combo challenge that Heather Summer's put out to her Simply Stars team (to which my upline Paula Ballard belongs). The challenge was to use Pink Passion, Old Olive and Basic Black. I was excited to open up the pack of DSP I received with the level 3 hostess set I received and it couldn't have been a better match!
