Happy New Year!


Wow, it’s been a while.

First, I just want to say that I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season filled with love, laughter, happiness and all the goodness your heart desires.

Sorry I’ve been gone so long. With all the holiday craziness, I just haven’t had the time or energy to even find my craft room, much less create anything.

On top of that, my muse must have taken a winter vacation to someplace far warmer than Ohio. So, if you see her anywhere, please send her back home.

I really enjoy Dawn McVey’s stamping style. It’s clean, simple, and beautiful. I was surfing her blog looking for some inspiration and cased this from her blog.

Dawn loves using PTI’s raspberry fizz cs with pure poppy ink. The look is stunning! Since I have drifted away from SU I am using up all my SU card stock so I can replenish with PTI’s cs and ink, which is just awesome by the way! For this I used SU Melon Mambo cs and Real Red ink since the colors are soooo close.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!
