Anyway... I haven't perused blogs for quite some time and the last few days I've had this yearning to get back to it. Facebook is still my main source of keeping up with people, but it's just not quite the same as a blog.
I've been continuing to do my monthly card classes and doing the random swap or two, but I've been neglecting to share my work. I keep blaming the fact that I can't find my camera cord (which is true - missing for over a year), but I do have a camera on my phone. While it's not as nice as my "real" camera, it's not so bad. So no more excuses. I'll be posting some recent cards I've done over the next couple of weeks and then I'll be going back in time and pull out some past cards, because hey, I still need inspiration for all kinds of cards and I bet others do too. :)
My latest card class, about a week ago, was created using the "Brushed" paper pack from Close to My Heart. I think this is my favorite paper pack in the Annual Inspirations Catalog. It's so Springy (is that a word?). I'm usually partial to these kinds of colors and I'm sure a lot of it has to do with me having boys and not getting to do a lot of the "girly" things. That's alright, I'll take it.
This is a great card to give to anyone. "Have a Lovely Day!" Who doesn't want to hear that?
Isn't that paper fun? And I just love all of the added sparkles.
As I said, this card was made using the "Brushed" paper pack from Close to My Heart. I originally designed this card for a Card Swap I participated in to showcase the new CTMH products. In fact all of the products are exclusively CTMH. I used a combination of two different stamp sets on this card. The butterfly and the leaves come from the "Brushed Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit" and the sentiment is from the "Lovely Birthday" set. I just love the font on that one. That fun pink metal flower is from the "Brushed Assortment". I used more of those flowers on another card and a layout that I will share in the near future. And don't forget the bling. I used both the "Sparkles Assortment" and the "Sparkles Small Flourishes". I've tried to link most of the products used on my card to my CTMH website in case you would like more info. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you like my card. Have a lovely day!
