Hello, my friends. Was your week as wild and crazy as mine? I certainly hope not. Later on, I'll tell you about it when you have time to sit for a cup of coffee. For now, I have a card. I saw a version of this wonderful design on Curt's Blog, and he linked it to the youtube tutorial. It is one of those gorgeous, striking designs that looks much harder than it is. Here is my rendition for this week's combo. Check out the SPCC blog for other samples with these colors. There is also information on a nice prize that you could win if you decide to play along. I hope that you do. And I hope that you have a great week. I will have final exams this week. After they are graded, I will take a breather!

Two More Cards

Hello friends! I am so happy that you have stopped in to see my blog. I have a couple of cards for you today. After I get through this last week of school and final exams, I hope to have more for you. Up first is the new SPCC combo for this week. Sami has a nice prize for a randomly-drawn participant, and it could be you! For this combo, I used one of my favorite stamps (I will bet you had no idea how I felt about this SP & Co. Musical Butterfly, did you?). I also used the Musical Background stamp to pretty up the butterflies cut with an amuse studios die set. I love this color combo, don't you?My other card is one of my Christmas cards. I might actually get them out before Valentines Day! I thought that I had enough cards already, but I can't find the ones I made a month ago. I guess I have learned a hard lesson about getting ahead on something. It's back to procrastinating for me. For this card, I used a Clever Level scalloped circle punch and a smaller circle punch to create the wreath. Then I glittered it up with Stickles, and added a bow. The red background has been run through my Big Shot with a CB folder. The sentiment is from SP & Co. Bold Sentiments II. I really love the font, don't you?Well, that's it for now. I need to get some papers graded and get working on finishing some of the props for the Sunday School Christmas Program next weekend. I hope that you have a good week. I know that I will try mighty hard to have a good one. Hugs to all of you.
