Thanks So Very Much

Hello. How is everyone? I cannot believe how long it has been since I last posted. With the holidays and work, I did not have much crafty time. However, this is a new year with a new me. I retired! Yes ... yes I did. Now I hope to devote my time to family, friends, card making and my Nerium business.

I finally had some play time last week and got inky one afternoon. I made several panels with the smooshing technique which I love, For this I used Salty Ocean DI & Mowed Lawn DI. I love how the colors blend together and every piece is so different.

For this card, I die cut the smooshed piece with my SSS stitched rectangle dies and adhered the piece to a white card base. The snowflakes were punched from glitter paper with an old McGill punch. I added a trio of them to my card, along with a sentiment from Reverse Confetti. I am entering this into the current challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge which is Frozen.

As you can imagine I needed several thank you cards after retiring from school and this is just one example. I hope to be back soon to share some more.

Meanwhile, I'm off to a Nerium conference in Richmond, Virginia for the weekend. Can't wait! 

Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!
