Getting Groovi!

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!

Before I get to today's card, I MUST say a HUGE THANK YOU for sticking with me during my unexpected absence since the start of the year.  I'm working with a new ghostwriting client, and although I've been MIA on here, finding my writing mojo has actually given me my crafty mojo back.  I just need to find some time to get the cards into your virtual hands now.  It's one of the reasons why this post is going straight out, but I'll hopefully get others scheduled tomorrow for the next couple months.  Believe me, I have more than enough cards to cover each week for a LOOONG time!

Anyway, enough of me jabbering, let's get to the card...

The center part of this design was one of the first Groovi baby plates I purchased after watching one of Barbara Gray's YouTube Tuesday videos in either late November or early December.  And a few days later I purchased the other.  Yep, I was hooked instantly! 

At the time I didn't have the appropriate scissors for the parchment, but I do now.  So, you'll be seeing a LOT more of the outer frame in the coming weeks!

Card: Unbranded white 6" x 6" scalloped card, large SU!'s Cucumber Crush snippet, and Claritystamp's parchment
Markers:  Spectrum Noir
Tools and embellishments: Tina's Daisy Parchlet Groovi baby plate, Queen Mary combi plate, and embossing tool (all Claritystamp) and brads from my stash

#346 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground

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