Hello Blog Friends!
Is it snowing where you are? I can't believe we woke up to about 4 inches of the white stuff this morning. It's March, for goodness' sake! But isn't crafting the perfect antidote to this ridiculous weather? I don't know where I'd be without it at the moment.
As you know, I've set up a card swap group. The first card I made was to go to Sue Ralph, and this is what I made:
The card base is Baja Breeze and it seemed to dictate the rest of the card, really. The ribbon is Baja Breeze, too, and I've stamped and cut out the base of the flower, using my Sizzix set, then stamped on vellum for the top flower, in white ink, which I then heat embossed. I am definitely not embossing enough and need to make a card at least once a month with a touch of heat embossing on it.
I'm sure you recognise the 'Hello' from the Elementary Elegance set.
Today I received my card and a very nice note from Alison, I was so excited to receive it. Look at this:
Can't wait to see what we all make for each other next month!
I'm going to do a spot of blog hopping and then I'm off to play with my new stamp sets.
Back soon y'all!
