Here it is...May 2012.  Time do fly...
I have been very prolific since I posted last.  There was another dry spell there for a while, but I found some inspiration in new papers and magazines. And, I recently attended a class with Diana Kovacs that was really fun and easy.  Diana showed us how to create a a faux-patina affect to use on card elements. We used Ranger Distress ink pads, a Cuttlebug machine with embossing folders, and some sparkle.  We started with ATC size pieces of card stock.  From there we could enhance the design for a card.   Here are a few of the cards that I created from the small ATC cards:



Feeling rather creative before I made the above cards produced these cuties:



Julia's Birthday
Julia's Bat Mitzvah Card

 My grand-niece Julia became a Bat Mitzvah last weekend.  She loves the color red, so I made her a red card.  Julia is an amazing young woman with talent, beauty and brains.  I am very proud of her.

So, for now, I've showed you the good stuff. 
Happy Spring every one!
