I'm very happy with the way this card turned out.  It was created for our adopted child in India, Ajaya, to celebrate Easter.  Made from the Springtime Box Cards kit from SVG Cuts.

Cards I made for Valentine's Day for my grandchildren in Missouri.  They are all from the Hearts Aflame kit from SVG Cuts.  I used masculine colors for the boys.  Even the teenagers liked them!

This card was made with one of the new mini stamps (one of several for $2.95) featured in the Autumn/Winter 2013 catalog.  CTMH offered it early as a fundraiser for the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.

I used the direct ink to embossing folder technique to create the paisley background.

Every once in awhile on the While Supplies Last tab of my website, we will offer a retired paper pack.  This is a paper pack I didn't really like enough to purchase initally, but bought it at a drastically reduced price.  We made this sweet card using it.

I have really enjoyed the Tommy Paper Pack - making cards with it in our last two classes!
I scraplifted this card idea from one of my card-making idols, Lisa Stenz, and changed it up just a bit by rounding all corners and adding stars and brads.  Topped it off with a baker's twine accent around the side.
