Play time

I had a friend over today and I was working on scrap pages. She was working on cards but when she finished she pulled out directions to make these cool boxes. The directions are here. We used various papers and card stock along with different bling.

Second Challenge Card and Easter

I had to do another card for the Challenge making a Love card without hearts. I think I like this one better.
I also made my first Easter card and like it but need to change the color of the flower as you really can't tell the difference from the leaves.

Since my scanner is not showing these as blue I decided I needed to pull out the camera. Much better color and they do show better. These are all Stampin' Up! products. Items used for them both include:
Ballet Blue card stock and ink

Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die
Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder

Happy New Year to all

I hope to start posting a little more regularly very soon. Now that Christmas is over with I have to get back to making cards and scrap booking.
