Colorful Hello Card

A couple months ago, I tried some new products. My intent was to have a simple design using a lot of colors.  I wish I had added something else - punched border or some other embellishment to make this more interesting.

Butterfly Hi

This card is very simplistic but I love the end result.  And it was a great way to include one of my faves...butterflies!  Once again, I relied on DCWV's paper stacks for the patterned paper.  They introduce new themes so often now, I can't keep up!

Copic Markers

I completed the standard and intermediate Copic marker certification classes...finally!  I finished a couple projects that we started while in class.  I had to purchase a few more markers so I could finish the projects.  Darn!  :-)

Happy Holidays Card

As usual, snowmen are the theme for my Christmas cards.  I made this card for another purpose - try the We R Memory Keepers Mini 8 punch.  I have a few of these and the Lucky 8 punches and I love them!

Stitched Card

I am trying new techniques and also finding purposes for the extra embroidery thread I have from past projects. I'll have to make a lot of cards to use that extra stuff!  This is my first stitched card.
