I promised to post the blue bayou Happy Heart Day card, so here it is. This was my favorite of the 6 projects we did at my workshop.

I've been playing with my blog for a couple of days now, figuring out how to add new things to the side, playing with the banner, I even added a hit counter. I'm starting to get the hang of it and it's easier than I thought it was going to be. Thanks for checking it out!!

Keep checking my blog for samples!

My New Blog

Happy Heart Day Samples

I've finally joined the world of blogging! Now I hope to find time to update it as often as possible. I'm still learning how to do this so be easy on me!! I'm going to be uploading samples frequently, so check back often.

The samples above are made from the stamp set "Happy Heart Day". I made the green (mellow moss) card on the left for a swap that I participated in. I designed the "pretty in pink" card, then decided to use the template for my workshop on Feb. 10. We made a similar card during the workshop using blue bayou cardstock and designer series paper. I just love that mouse! The cute little hearts are Cuttlebug dies and the dry embossing on the bottom layer is also a Cuttlebug A2 folder (swirls). I didn't have enough clear buttons for everyone to use during my workshop, so I used jumbo brads instead. I'll post the blue bayou version soon.
