It has been a really long time since I've made anything! I have been playing around with stuff but just no time to actually create! We went to our niece's for Thanksgiving yesterday and I was itching to make something, so this is the Thank You card I made. Considering I am not usually one to distress anything (I am a type "A" personality so to "distress" something is a little, well...distressing to me!) It took everything I had to crumple up that nice, smooth Very Vanilla cardstock! But I think the end result is very rustic and Fall-like even though our weather here is more like summer! Everything is Stampin Up! except the leaf. I used Old Olive cardstock for the base and Soft Suede cardstock behind the Very Vanilla cardstock which I ran thru my Big Shot using the Top Note die. I sponged the Very Vanilla CS with Soft Suede and Crushed Curry ink before I crumpled it quite a few times! Then I sponged it a little more! I also used my Color Spritzer tool with my Soft Suede marker for the little dots! I finished off my card with Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and linen thread. I have to tell you, I think the Big Shot is the best thing ever! I absolutely love it! Thanks for looking!

No, not certifiable (well, that might depend on who you ask!) but Certified by Stampin' Up! for My Digital Studio! I can now confidently share with you all of the many wonderful qualities of this fun and fabulous product! Stay tuned...one of these days I will have enough time to play with my stuff and update my blog a little bit. Hmmm....I wonder when that will be? Hopefully not too long! Thanks to those who randomly stop by and check out my blog. One day you might actually see something new!

Yikes! I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted. Well, I have had a few things going on! For one, I am a new grandmother - again! That is very exciting! Another girl! She is so tiny! I have also been busy sort of playing with My Digital Studio and getting my certification. Well, I just finished that and here is my very first project!
Well, what do you think? I think it's very cute! Of course, the one I sent to the printer is wrong, which is why you should always check your project! Check it again, then check it again! Oh, and also check your facts! Ha! The one sent to the printer has Gianna weighing in slightly less. And you know I didn't just order one! Since I have now mastered (sort of) My Digital Studio (MDS) I plan on updating my blog and header and doing all sorts of stuff! MDS is not just digital scrapbooking-it is a digital paper crafting solution! And its fun! Click here to order your own copy of MDS.
