Heartfelt Thanks and a Valentine


This is my very first post – EVER – I have only been part of the ‘stamping world’ for about a year.  Thus far, it has been an incredible journey.  The people you meet are just the most rewarding and talented group of artists that you will ever come across.  One of these talented artists is Carla Bazhenow of Carla’s Scraps http://www.carlas-scraps.com/ if it wasn’t for her none of this would be possible.  She goes over and beyond anything asked of her.  She’s like - Nationwide….always on your side!! *smile*   Be sure to check her blog out!!!  You’ll be glad you did, her work is absolutely beautiful.                  THANK YOU CARLA!

A valentine for Ansley

039

Ansley is my sweet Granddaughter.  She still hangs on to one or two stuffed animals.  One day soon I know they will all be gone.  

To make your card grow:

Stamps:  Northwoods
Paper:    E.Espresso, C.Cobbler, W.White, V.Vanilla Kraft and black
Ink:       E.Espresso
Punches: SU heart, circle and oval punches, MS border/heart punches and 1/4, 1/8 hole punches 

 

A valentine for Jarrett

008

And Jarrett is my sweet Grandson.  He is definitely a “BUG” kind of guy!
When I saw this little guy at http://technostamper.blogspot.com/ I knew I had to make it for him.  Check her blog out for all the details!

That’s it for my first adventure at blogging.  I see area’s in need of improvement but overall it’s a good thing.  Thanks for visiting with me and hope you will stop in again!  If anything I can help you with, I’m only an email away.
