Exciting Update

Hey!  I am so excited!  I just discovered that Blogger - the company that helps me publish this blog  -  has added a new button, one that I have wanted for a long time. 

You can have my blog updates sent right to your e-mail!  YEAH!  You don't have to track me down, it can come to you.  What a fun thing, to have some creative juice show up in your email now and then! 

Just look in the column to your left, enter your e-mail address and we will do the rest.

I hope you will consider signing up and having me show up in your in box!

New Meets Old

Hey everyone!  I am sorry about the delay in posting. I have broken my arm, at the wrist and I am moving a bit slow.  Typing is one of those things that can only be done in short bursts.

Today I have so much to share!!!  I have had several classes since I last posted and I have had plenty of time to spend in my scrap room since I haven't been able to work.  I am trying to at least be able to see the floor before I return to work.  It is a slow process! 

So, on to New meets Old:

This card is made with some of my favorite paper from a couple years ago.  I have been hoarding it, and now it is time to use it up and move on!  Can you see what the "new" is?

  Your right, a NEW  stamp set, 'Thank You' #D1361 and ..... Art Philosophy!  This scalloped circle is from the cricut cartridge!  I cut 6 of them faster than I could ever cut them out by hand or even punch them.  And while they were cutting, I was doing something else.  I love the CRICUT, it allows me to multi task.  (Don't tell my husband!)

 These cards are from my last monthly work shop.  We used the Mischief paper pack. My card makers wanted both Halloween and Fall cards, so that is what I did.  These are all the same paper, the exact same location on the cards, just different stamp sets.  Isn't it cool that we can do that? 
 And the OLD part of these cards .... the pattern.  We used a CHRISTMAS pattern for our card maps!  If you look, I have all the cards laid out in the same positions as the flyer.  Just the paper and stamp changes make the difference.  So Cool.  (sorry, I am very impressed with myself today, ha ha )
Well, I think that is all I can do for now.  I will chat at you again soon.  c
