 In the meantime, I have been playing around with some of the new products I have received lately. I downloaded a digital kit Greeting Card Kids to get the cute little girl for this card.

This card was inspired by SU Stampin' Success. A monthly newsletter for demonstrators. I did this as a make and take at my Saturday workshop and the ladies just loved it. You can't see from the lighting on this picture, but there is Shimmer Mist all over the flowers. I used it to moisten the paper before I crinkled it. And the new Framed Tulips Embossing Folder from the New Occasions Mini is just fabulous! I ran the shorter piece through the Big Shot a second time, but just far enough to empression the edge of the smaller piece. And don't you just love the colors? Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake.....very vintage. I love it! 
Here's a completed look at the Basket of Love. I filled it with some Sweethearts and a few bath products. The cellophane and ribbon finish it off beautifully, don't you agree? Oh, and look at the blog ID at the bottom. My wonderful friend Cathy over at Scrappin' Cats Creative Endeavors was kind enough to give me some tutoring on blog stuff and how she did things. It's a little rough, but once I work out the lighting issues, my pictures should be much better for viewing and posting! You should check out her blog here: 

She is so creative and I am moved to create by her inspiration and those that she finds inspiration from as well. Let her know you stopped by, she loves feedback too!

One last card....This one was made for my Love Shack project. I filled it with cards made form the Filled with Love DSP papers ONLY ON SALE TILL TOMORROW! They turned out very cute. I love the soft colors. Oh, and I forgot the red....yeah, I love em all. 
Well, I was a bit long winded today. I am looking forward to posting more this week as I have been inspired all weekend to create. Keep checking back for more...oh, and feel free to leave a note and let me know what you think. It's nice to know people are stopping by and liking what they see......
