It has taken me awhile to return to my blog!! I have been very involved in our Artisan Shoppe and finding little time to blog. Yes, I still make cards and have made cards for the shoppe. However, I have done some soul searching and decided that I really miss making cards and blogging. I am so inspired by what I see online. There are so many talented card crafters....
Winter just doesn't want to end here even though tomorrow is May first! It is very cold,damp and dreary. Just the ticket for making  cards...right?

Let me introduce my newest easel cards:

One of these cards is for my granddaughter. She makes her First Communion this weekend.Sorry about picture quality, it is very gloomy here. They predict sunshine in a week!

Materials used:
Cuttlebug die for background
Silver Cardstock: Michael's
Silver edging: Sharpie markers
Spellbinders: Cross Dies
Sentiment: I did copy this from the internet, wish I could
give credit to the writer (Computer Generated)
Ribbon: Michael's

Thanks for stopping. Please leave me a message and I will visit your blog too.
