I'm on top of the world!

I can't tell you what a thrill it was to see my creation on the homepage of The Angel Company!! I know, I know - it's just a snowflake with some chipboard and stamping but to me...well, I'm tickled pink!!



I wanted to share a quick card I made yesterday...using something new and something old! Did you know that we will be carrying Nestabilities and rubber stamps to match?! Here's my first sample using one of them (Fabulous Frames) and the bird/saying is from my favorite set (which will be gone after 1 Feb), Beautiful Day. You can find all of the retiring Serendipty stamps on sale here.


It's another simple card - but I hoped the embossed tone on tone, scalloped edge and embossed black panel makes it a bit more "wow" than just cardstock slapped together! I always am envious of those talented stampers that make any card look special versus mine which may tend to look like a 10 year old could've made it! tee hee...

Hope you have a great mid-week. I'm off to decorate the bulletin boards at church. This afternoon we're getting a new dryer delivered - I am hoping I made the right choice. It's crazy that picking a dryer could be so nerve wracking but we've had the last one for 17 years and I debated getting it repaired vs. buying a new one. ugh! I'd rather be stamping!! :)

You deserve homepage honors - your banner is fantastic!

Now, about that card. I love everything about it, except the image - it needs something a bit more elegant, I think, to go with all those flourishes and stuff.
