Gray is the New Black

Hi there!  Just popping in real quick to share a card I created for the Gray is the New Black Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

First, I white embossed the Circle Lace image on some gray Basic Grey paper.  Then I stamped over the top with the Antique Writing image using Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from the new Sending Smiles Message clear stamp set.  And I finished the card off with some twine from The Twinery and a cute little gray heart button.

Have a great day! :)

I don't decorate the insides of my cards very often...and it's mostly because I am a very slow card maker.  By the time I've spent several hours on the front of the card, I'm ready to call it quits. ;)  But the January challenge theme over on the Hero Arts Blog motivated me to give it a shot.  I thought a window card would a perfect solution, so here's what I came up with...

Lots of Hero Arts stamps going on here...Music Background, Blossom Art and Live Life.  I love the font used for the word "hello"...can you imagine a whole set of sentiments using this font?...yum! ;)

Have a great day! :)

Happy New Year!

I finally got a chance to play with some new Hero Arts stamps this morning and created this very quick and simple card.

I stamped the Envelope Pattern image with white ink on kraft paper for the card base. And the sentiment is from the Thank You For Being My Friend clear stamp...LOVE this set, great sentiments and love the typewriter font. 

I'm really excited to start this Monthly Photo Project I came across on Rebecca Cooper's blog.  Since all my photos have become digital, I've really struggled with a way organize my photos in such a way that my family can enjoy them.  I rarely print any photos...they are all just sitting on my computer or on DVD's.  This project seems very manageable and that really appeals to me.  I think I can handle one page a month...I may even spread it out to a two-page spread per month.  And then at the end of the year I'll print all of them in a photo book.  It really makes me happy to think of having a shelf lined with these books in my living room to pull out at any time.

Do you have any New Years resolutions that you are excited about?  I'd love to hear.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
