All of them have fabulous blogs - if you have time go by and visit and leave them some love - don't we all love that????
I am glad you Ladies found my blog and liked it enough to join! 

Of course I have a welcome picture for you:

This sphere is by Jason Schneider, who designs objects and furniture from cardboard - I love this - appeals to my love of patterns and all things geometric! I  hope you like it as much as I do!

And now my card:

I had a pretty busy week, but today I found some time to make a card for this week's Paper Smooches challenge. The inspiration picture is below.

I went with the colors, the subtle pattern of the baskets and the center frame and tried to recreate that modern, clean look. Used chalk board technique and heat embossed the sentiments. Other than that I used PP. The flower die cuts are by Papertrey. Added enamel dots.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
