A sweet Angel

This Angel image is from the Graphics Fairy blog and I just couldn't wait to create a card with her sweet face. Simon Says is having a "Anything Goes" challenge this week and I was excited to make a card for this challenge using my imagination. Here is my Anything Goes: "Angels are all around us"

Brown paper packages tied up with strings....

..these are a few of my favorite things. I just love this song, Mary Poppins, one the the most wonderful, classic movies of all time (Yes, Virginia, the movie is the Sound of Music, thanks :) The challenge this week over at CAS-ual Fridays has taken me to create this kraft based card with twine. The sentiment is from a new Hero Arts background stamp, added a few goldtone gems some pretty DP and viola, a pretty card for the challenge. Thanks for visiting today :)

I made this card for the last challenge 2011 over at the Play Date Cafe. Another year comes to a close and leads the way for a new year full of possiblilites! I thought I could get in one more Christmas card using the colors for this challenge and here it is: Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year 2012!

New stamps.......Yeah......!!!!

Hero Arts has their new 2012 catalogue and stamps out!! All I can say is wow, please let the trees in our yard start growing money :) I went to Archiver's yesterday for the HA release party and bought 3 new HA stamps. Of course I wanted to buy more, but I had to reign myself in. Here's a card made with one of my favorite new stamps, Flower Border, just love it. I like to put brown and turquoise together, kinda a classic, cool look.
