Finally something new...

Wow, how horrible....I can't believe I haven't posted anything in so long. Things have been busy and I've been reorganizing my stamping stuff.....so on we go.

This first card is straight out of the current "Stampin' Success" magazine. I didn't use the "Taste of Textiles" paper and I used different ribbon. But I liked the design a lot.

The butterfly card was created at a team meeting last month using a baby wipe to create your own
multi-coloured stamp pad. I hadn't done that technique for a while and it was a good refresher. Plus, I love these butterflies. I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds bling.

Lastly, a quick simple card using some of the designer paper that I've neglected to use for a while.

I'm off to a stamping event today so I'll be able to share more. Plus now that my room is cleared up - and I have all my punches out where I can see them....I can get down to some serious stamping...and punching.

I hope you have a wonderful sun-shiney day - Thanks for dropping by.
