I love how stitching looks on a card.  Its either a great finishing touch or a wonderful embellishment.  In this card its both.  The card was cute but too plain until I stitched the squares. It really made the card pop!

Stamps are from Stampin UP!, Just Because.  Ink is from their new colors, 2012-2013.  I absolutely love the richness of these colors. Bird and branch are from Memory Box dies and the sentiment is from Hero arts.

I am a chocoholic.  I was cleaning my scrapbook room  late last night, not cleaning because I wanted to but because I could not find a piece of paper that I needed for a scrapbook layout. Well the paper is still lost but I found this cute chocolate chip paper, (Years old)  and thought cookie!!!!

Quick, easy and cute!  Stamp is from Hero arts,  bling and ribbon from stash.  Cricut for the 5 inch circle.

WOW  I haven't made a mosaic card in a while,  I make alot of mosaic pages when I scrapbook, they take forever but I love how they look.    I didn't do a full mosaic because it took too much away from the image, but I like how this turned out.

Stamp set is from Stampin Up, Just Because, stamped twice. Colored with markers on Whisper White Card Stock. I distressed the paper by tearing it, and just  had to use my Stampin UP retired Daisy die for the flower.  I was motivated by a sketch at The Outlawz challenge blog.  Sparkle had to be added to brighten the card so I used brown bling and pearls.

My cousins daughter is having her grad party next weekend.  I made her a Vintage Scrapbook album on her Paris trip,  and naturally I needed a card.  I think this card took longer to make then the album.  I kept on playing and before I knew it 3 hours was wasted!  But I love it!

Fancy fold, triangles.  Image was digital scrapbooked, Memory dies for embellishments, flowers die cut from Tim Holtz.    I hope she keeps this......

I cant believe I actually made a Christmas card,  I guess Im enjoying the "COLD"  weather here,  yep it was 88 today but after 5 days of  100+ is is gorgeous out.  Actually I fell in live with this free digi, Mums Coat from Beccy's Place.  I colored it with Prisma, Gamasol and Copics,  I used stickles on the fur.  Punch is by MS, all else from stash.
