Why oh why is Le Jardin retiring?

Once I disovered how masculine some of the Le Jardin paper was, I realized just how much I had been missing until recently! I made these cards in bulk to have on hand for those male birthdays that seem to challenge me creatively every time. It is a pretty simple card, but I like it!
Paper: Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla, Le Jardin DSP

Regal Silhouettes

This card was inspired by Jill Hilliard (stampwithjill - she is one of my favorites!). I retained the color scheme and layout while using a different stamp set and omitting the sentiment and holes. The theme is very versatile, which I love. And...it took me less than 5 minutes from start to finish. I am using Purely Pomegranate as much as possible these days; I am so sad about its pending departure. My new In Colors will be arriving tomorrow, and I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised once I see them in person.

My very first post as a blogger

Hi, everyone. Thank you for taking the time to view my brand new blog! I was a bit resistant to the idea at first, but have found SO MUCH inspiration from many amazing bloggers. Forgive me while I get used to this entire process. My biggest concern is not giving credit to those whose work I have cased over the past several months. Moving forward I will be paying close attention, I promise!

I have been stamping for a little over 2 years; my first project was making my wedding save-the-dates with my future mother-in-law. Before I knew it, I found my true passion. I am now an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and love when I have free time to spend in my craft area (the other half of my office).

Stay tuned for some posts!
