what have I been up to?

Well for starters I am taking an online wire-work class , ASPIRE TO WIRE with Kerry Bogart, and so far I haven't hurt myself or poked an eye out using wire, and I have been successful with the projects that I have completed. However I am tardy with taking photos and putting them online.

One of the comments left on my blog led me to another Jewellery artist Lori Anderson who is the lady responsible for the very popular Bead Soup Blog Party. I managed to apply in time and am now waiting to find out who my partner is, so I can mail off my bead soup package. I am excited to take part in this yearly event that I've only read about and heard about for the past two years . (so I'm a bit slow off the mark to get involved.)
Plus I've been busy making valentines favours for craft shows I'm selling at in January and early February. So I hope I'm forgiven for not posting here very often.
 I will get better at this blogging , I sure can't get worse. lol

Happy New Year

well the holiday season has come and almost gone and I have had some time to play.
As part of my new year goals , I am taking part in a monthly craft sale in my town and am busy making cards for Valentines Day. 

 I am working on clearing out my paper stash, so this one uses blush textured cardstock,  some retired ribbon from a set that coordinated with one of our paper packs. the stamp is from the Whoo's Your Valentine January promo from Close to my Heart.
Pink and chocolate go so well together, don't they.
this one uses blush CS again; also the diagonal hearts embossing folder from Crafts Too, it works so well with CTMH white core cardstock when sanded.
the stamp is from the Whoo's your Valentine promo this month.
again pink and chocolate . now I'm getting hungry for sugar.

Check back later for more cards. Not only am I on a roll making them but also taking photos.
whoo hoo for New Years Goals.
