Love-ly cards...

Hello Friends!  It seems like a long time since I've been here again.
I'd like to say "thank-you" to everyone who came out last night for my catalogue launch.  You all make it worth my time-and more:)
I have a couple of cards that were made a couple of days ago:
I made this one using some gorgeous paper from My Minds Eye.  It's called Oliver- I think it's my new favourite paper ever (smile).  The sentiment is from Fiskars.  I looked everywhere for a "love" stamp that I liked and finally found this one. 

This one is made by the lovely Carmen (my partner in crime aka cardmaking).  This card uses the bright and cheery Mother's Love from My Minds Eye- another recent find.  The crochet flower, twine, heart shape and LOVE are all from CTMH.
Pretty, eh?
Thanks for looking-cheerio!

New Stuff!!!

I would like to share with you 2 cards that I made with some of the goodies I got in the mail yesterday.

I couldn't wait to break into the box when it came, but we had appointments to go to first:)

Finally after supper I got my first look at my new stuff- and I was so pleased!

Pink and Teal and Grey and Navy Blue; girl stuff and boy stuff; glitter and sparkles- I can't wait to use it all.

This first card is my take on the Mojo Monday 276 Sketch Challenge.  I just made it a 4x4 card instead of regular size.

This one is another sketch that I found-but I can't remember where I found it:)

I used the brand-new Chantilly Paper Pack from CTMH, Chantilly Complements-Chipboard Pieces, Shimmer Trim, Bitty Sparkles, Cricut Art Philosophy, Sorbet Baker's Twine, and Outdoor Denim ink.

Thanks for looking and have a great day:)

Zoe Layout-Second Try:)

I just finished this layout and I couldn't be more pleased with it!  I love how it turned out.

I am excited to be entering this into a contest over at page maps.  There is a sketch that we can basically do whatever we want with.  I'm not super creative so I pretty much stuck to what was shown.

I picked up this gorgeous paper at Winners the other day.  It's called "Follow Your Heart" from My Mind's Eye.  I've been having all kinds of luck there when it comes to paper lately!  The layered flowers and 'beautiful life' sticker are from a paper set called "Serenade" from Basic Gray.  I thought they matched very nicely.  The pink lace, buttons, and Opaque Pearls are from CTMH.  The burlap string is also from Winners.  I think it's American Craft.

I think this is going to be one of my favourite layouts ever!

Thanks for looking-now that you could- and have a great day!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Everyone!  I can't believe another year has passed already. I wish you all many blessings in 2013!
I'd like to thank all who have  helped make 2012 a great business year.  I appreciate your patronage.
Just to let you know, the new Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Books are out and I should have my copies pretty soon...  I can't wait to see the new product in person.  There's a lot of beautiful new paper and accessories just waiting to be played with.
