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 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.
