I Feel Lucky

Hello and Happy New Year to you all! Forgive me for my unannounced leave of absence. I really didn't expect to leave you hanging for so long. I've had a lot on my plate these days and just needed time to focus on my family and my ever growing to do list. I've got some new and exciting ventures coming up, but I can't share at this time.

However, I did want to let you know that I am fine, and thanks to those who contacted and checked in on me. It sure is nice to know that I was missed!

Today's card is in honor of the New Year and Valentine's Day. Pulled out an older set, Luck of the Irish , for this one... Started with a white base and then impressed it with the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate.
Stamped a row of frames (in Pure Poppy and Raspberry Fizz) and a sentiment (in True Black) onto a strip of cardstock. Attached the strip to the card base with dimensional adhesive. Finished the card off with a True Black heart (also impressed with the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate) and a few True Black Buttons and white twine.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

  2. SOOOOOOO happy you're back!!! And back with a bang! I've always loved that frame in LOTI, but I've never thought of repeating it like that. Stunning effect. You always make it look so easy. :)

  3. I love the alternating colors of labels. I am curious. Did you stamp all the pink leaving spaces and then go back and stamp the red?

  12. So glad to see you back. Maybe the news you can't share yet is that you are going to design stamps for PTI? I already know I would be a buyer, LOVE your style!

    It's a good life!
