The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Hello All my Bloggin' Friends!

Just poppin in to post a new card that I put together for a colleague at work who is under the weather.  I selected a nice little get well verse for the inside and was very pleased with the Spring like look and colors reminiscent of the promise of summer to come.  The paper I used is an older Cosmo Cricket summer wedding collection and I fell in love with the soft muted greens, yellows, and greys and that punch of orange.  I layered a few Spellbinder dies on this one.  First I used the Heart Circles Nestabilities in orange on the face of the card and then again on the inside to frame the get well verse.
The Heart Circle that I cut for the front panel I did with that blast of orange that you see here and there throughout the pattern paper collection.  I covered that die cut with a Beaded Oval die cut in grey, then a standard oval and then another beaded oval.  The center sentiment is one I chose from the JustRite 2" Square Hope Centers and Borders collection.  I used another of the Spellbinders Standard Ovals to frame "Thinking of You" from the Sympathy Nested Sentiments and Verse collection from Just Rite Stampers.  As I share what Just Rite stamps I used here, I am thinking of the great plans I have for some new Just Rite stamps that go with some of the Spellbinders dies that I will be working on.  I will be putting some of those projects right here on the blog.  And as I go on and on here, I think I better get moving as I still have a few thing to gather up as I get ready for another day of fun and crafting tomorrow.  I'm off to Espanola in the morning to the 1st Annual "I Love Scrappin" fundraiser crop put on by Community Living Espanola.  The proceeds from this crop will go towards the purchase of a new wheelchair van for C.L.E.
OC Scrapbookers will be on the scene tomorrow with a store full of scrapping products and a little birdie told me that some new items just arrived and will be put on display tomorrow for us all to drool over!  Come on out and shop if you can't stay and crop!  I hope to see you all there at some point through the day tomorrow.  Not only will I be working on some of my projects but I will also be working with Deb and the OC team on some fabulous demonstrations with some of the new products and trends in the Scrapbooking world.  It will prove to be an exciting day!
