It's been a while...

Wow...here we are already nine days into April and I haven't made one single blog post! I've been super busy with a million different things going on around here. Thankfully things will be settling down a bit for me and I should have a little more time for stamping again. I did manage to squeeze in a little play time to try out a few of my new goodies. I've also been doing some scrap booking...so when I get those pages photographed I'll be sharing those here soon. For now, here's a card made with the Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions die. (AKA an embossing folder)This embossing die is so pretty and elegant it looks great on it's own, however...I just had to use that beautiful butterfly from the Level 1 Hostess set, God's Beauty. I stamped it in Basic Gray on Shimmery White card stock and watercolored it using Blush Blossom & Baja Breeze ink...the same colors I choose for my card stock. The Eyelet Border punch is new to me as well...so I had to use that too! It is very easy to line up and punch a flawless border - even on a 12 inch border for a scrapbook page. I find it much easier to use than the regular scallop border punch.

Since I wanted to try out more of my new stuff I used the Scalloped Oval punch and the Oval All set for the greeting. (aren't you surprised that I didn't find a way to work in those funny fish from the Just Beachy set as well?! Hey...maybe hanging from the ribbon! ;-)

You may remember me posting a spring banner that I made a couple weeks ago, and saying I would post another photo after I decorated my buffet. I had hung it up quickly for a photo, but since it was just before we got our wood floor installed,I didn't want to put up my Easter/Spring decor at that time. So here's a photo of how my spring banner looks along with the other springy decor.


If you want to know details on my spring banner, see this post. Just click on photo to see it enlarged. It is sunny, with warmer temps here today...hopefully it will melt the rest of the snow we got on Sunday/Monday...and it will look like Spring outside and not just inside! Hope you have a warm & sunny day too!
