Thank Goodness for the New Year!

WOW... did it feel GOOD to finally get into my craftroom!!!

I do love the holidays, however it can just get SO overwhelming at times!!   I had GREAT intentions... and just about everyday in December, I wanted to get some "stamp time" in, but there was always something else that needed to be done first, so my stamping bliss time was post-poned numerous times. 

I hope everyone's holidays were special and wonderful... mine were! Tonight I stamped, tomorrow my tree comes down!  Which will officially mark the end of the holiday season.

It took me a while to FIND my craft table, because things just got piled up... higher and higher, until I was able to sort through the rubble!  BUT... here is it...  The FIRST card of 2010...  Called:    Love Birds! Smiley from

This card uses our NEW Speciality Designer Series Paper called:  Sending Love... and EVERY single sheet is STUNNING!  I highly recommend this beautiful paper, its just SOoo pretty!

This card will be one of the project that my stamp class will be making this Saturday, if you live in Southeastern PA, and would like to attend, please contact me.

The base of the card is Very Vanilla, the pink scallop was die cut using the Circle Scallops #2 die, and the stamp set is called Love You Much!  I used the Heart to Heart punch for the cut out hearts, and the birds... (if you look closely)... are paper pierced using some Saffron DSP.  Check out that beautiful satin ribbon... YEP... in the Occasions Mini Catalog coming out!  (Check out my side bar, I have a button if you want to see the mini)

Here's a list of all the supplies used to make this card:

Remember... my Stamp Store is open 24/7!
