A new year!

Happy New Year Everyone!! After several weeks away from my stamping table I am soooooo glad to be back! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are ready to face the year. I was not totally a couch potato during the holiday season…. I was able to start and just about finish knitting a scarf – just have about 4 more inches to go and then it is done!

And I got into a cleaning and organizing mode as well. I first went through my bedroom dresser – found out I had 13 pairs of black socks…what’s up with that? I live in Florida!! One pair will suffice! After the dresser I tackled our master bedroom closet. Oy! It’s a decent sized walk in closet that tended to be stuffed with everything. After some major cleaning I ended up with 5 large bags and one large box going to Goodwill and 3 large bags in the trash. We know have tons of space.

The best news of the new year is that I am now a member of the Senior Design Team for Mark’s Finest Papers!!!! Woo Hoo!!! What a wonderful group of ladies – and some beautiful stamps to boot!

So – here is a sneak peek for the January release -the stamps will be available next week. I made this card for todays color challenge at SCS which calls for using the colors of blush, red and baja blue.



The rose postal image and sentiment are from a new set called Sending Happy Thoughts.  I just LOVE postal images – they never seem to go out of style!  I colored the image in copics – using colors in the R and RV for the bud and YG for the leaves.   A little blue memento ink was sponged around the edges. 

A cuttlebug folder was used for the embossing and a pretty pink ribbon to tie it all together!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
