The Write Stuff

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments, encouragement and patience recently. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today's card was created last weekend in anticipation of a long awaited occasion, and I'm beyond pleased to be posting it today, two days after the first draft of my latest novel was COMPLETED!

I began the draft back in mid-October and have spent some time every working day (73) on it, so it has been quite an intense time.

Thankfully the card took a fraction of the time, thanks to the wonderful Mynn's very appropriate digi stamp set, The Write Stuff.  As both a writer and artist, I doubly love it!  Grin.


Card: Crumb Cake and Whisper White from SU
Ink: SU's Crumb Cake and Basic Black Archival
Stamp sets: The Write Stuff and Timeless Textures from SU
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals

Challenges...
February at MHK Designs
AG at TTCRD

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Just A Note...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I apologize for not getting a card posted on Friday or again today, but instead of totally abandoning you I wanted to let you know why... I'm days away from completing the first draft of my latest novel, so getting that finished is my priority right now.

I will be back next Monday with my regularly scheduled reminder for the latest challenge at House of Cards, and will stop by and see you in the meantime, if I get time.

Thanks for your understanding,

Colored & Embossed Spotlight

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The main feature in today's card is a gorgeous rose embossing folder that I won a while ago from Di at Pixie's Snippets Playground.  Unfortunately it was won that long ago that I can't remember which company made it, or the name.  Oops!  As much as I love butterflies, roses are a close second, so I loved playing with it...


Card: Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, and Pink Pirouette and Tip Top Taupe Stampin' Write Markers
Stamp sets: Artistically Asian
Tools and embellishments: Layering Ovals framelits and Scalloped Oval punch (retired)
Adhesives: Tombow and Stampin' Dimensionals

Challenges...
#267-268 AAG at Pixie's Snippets Playground
#268-269 AAG at Word Art Wednesday
#121 AAG at Inspiration Destination

I'll be back on Friday with another creation using some of these elements, so I hope you'll join me then.
