Happy New Year!

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 know it's VERY late to be sharing this card, but I had to make sure it had reached the recipient before posting.  Even more so because the Christmas card I sent her was returned thanks to an incorrect address.  Oops!

Late last year I found... and quickly became just a tad obsessed... with the Groovi parchment craft system from Clarity Stamp.  The daisies in the card design came from my first "baby plate" purchase, which was rapidly followed up with subscription to their New Design Groovi club, which resulted in the arrival of the other elements.  Grin.

I've had an ahem, bunch of fun playing with the plates I've got and will show you more of the creations later this month, around the time my next one will arrive.  Grin.

Card: SU's Whisper White and Sahara Sand, and Clarity's parchment
Marker: Dark Purple one from Spectrum Noir
Tools and embellishments: Clarity Stamp's Daisy Flowers Groovi Baby Plate, Alphabet A5 Square Groovi Plate Mate and Labels insert, and embossing tool.  Silver brads from my stash

#13 Fun Technique at Crafter's Castle
#343 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground (large snippet used to back the parchment)

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


  1. Beautiful card, Happy New Year to you too.

  3. Sooooo pretty! I've been eyeing this parchment side of crafting but I've afraid if I start, there will be no stopping me :-) Another crafting element to add to electronic die cutting, regular die cutting, stamping, etc. etc. :-) But looking at your card, just makes me want to take the plunge and get some :-) Love it!
    Have a wonderful day.
    Hugs ~ Lena

  8. Hi Em! Beautiful work - and a lovely result. I went overboard for the Groovi when it first came out - sadly rarely touch it now which is such a waste. Need to make more 'me' time I think!

    Sorry to take so long to comment - blame a white fluffy bundle called Dudley!
