A beautiful card from the one and only Beate Johns!! I had seen this card on her blog, but let me assure you--it's even better in person!! Thank you so much, Beate!!
Good morning!!! I have added a new album for the cards we do at my card club each month!! I will add to this each month, after our meeting!!
P.S. I have one opening in the card club--we meeting Friday nights at 7pm--let me know if you're interested!
Good morning!!! I wanted to share this beautiful card I received from Sherrie!! She is my "upline"--which means that I signed up as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator under her. She is in Ohio, and I sure do miss her!! She sends me great cards, gifts, etc all the time!! She's just the best!
Here's the last of the swap cards! This was created by Sara--isn't it beautiful?! She used the Rock and Roll technique on the big center image. To do this, ink the large medallion stamp with soft sky ink, then gently roll 2/3 outer edge with groovy guava ink; finally, roll the outside edge in blue bayou ink; stamp image onto blue sky cardstock. (thanks, Sara, for including the directions!!!)

Here's my interpretation of this week's sketch challenge! I didn't stamp at all! I used the new Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit from Stampin' Up! It's a great kit, with wonderful colors!! And, it has the textured cardstock--see the red cardstock?! It's beautiful!!!!
The kit comes with:
- 2 sheets of Bashful Blue textured cardstock: 12x12
- 2 sheets of Pretty in Pink Textured cardstock: 12x12
- 2 sheets of Real Red textured cardstock: 12x12
- 2 sheets of Wild Wasabi textured cardstock: 12x12 (this is a new In Color color)
- 6 sheets of exclusive Designer Series papers
- 6 sheets of exclusive, self-adhesive die cuts!
This is my new favorite set!!! And, I don't even own it!!! I have seen soooooo many great ideas using this set--someone even made a ladybug from the petals!! Anyway, this is the card Brenda did for our New Catalog Set Swap!!

What a unique card--a great layout!!
I recently participated in a swap using new sets from the 2007-08 Fall-Winter Catalog! Here is one of the cards I received:
Selene used the Three for You Punch Box--love those little flowers! The cardstock is Basic Black, Soft Sky & Whisper White. She also used the new Prints Designer paper in Soft Sky. Other items used were dazzling diamonds glitter, black brads & black gingham ribbom.
Such a pretty card!!
Here's a card I did for Beate's sketch challenge. You can see the sketch here.
I used the new Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit. It's soooo pretty!! And the textured cardstock is to die for!! There are 8 sheets of the textured cardstock in each simply scrappin' kit!! No stamping involved at all on this card. I did use some whisper white cardstock behind the striped piece, and behind the sentiment. Other than that, it's all from the scrappin' kit!
