Hi Guys,

Scrapfest was a HUGE success for everyone. Our booth at Pointers Gift and Crafts ( was so busy the whole time, that you could hardly fit into our booth. If you want to see some of the pictures, go to Pointers website and you will be able to see them. It was great to see so many familiar faces and really nice to meet new ones. Especially those that insisted on having pictures taken with me (wink, Trish Hill and friend).

The card I am posting today features a Hero Arts stamp. I used a new Martha Stewart Punch for the border, and stamped a checkered image on the purple card stock with Versa Mark, but I am not sure if it will show up very well. I wanted a very subtle background and I was hoping it would show up on the computer. I coloured the roses with Prisma colour pencils and odorless mineral spirits. For an embellishment, I used three purple baubles to finish off the card.

Hope you enjoy the card and thanks so much for stopping by.

I would love to hear from you.

Have a great weekend.

Faux tearing

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed celebrating Passover and Easter with family and friends . I know it has been awhile since I blogged and I apologize for that, but I have been so busy designing new classes, preparing both samples and Make and Takes which I will be doing for Pointers Gift and Crafts at Scrapfest in Kitchner next week. If you are going to attend, please come and say "Hi", watch the demos, and make the fabulous Make and Takes with us. We are going to be in booth 630, and I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

I decided to incorporate some old techniques and change them up a bit for some of my classes, (I am now teaching at Pointers Gifts and Crafts Here is one of the cards I made using distress inks. Did you guys see the 12 new colours? Of course, I had to buy them all, the colours are gorgeous, and I plan on using them often.

I used Hero Arts leaf stamp, Rangers Distress Inks Broken China and Shabby Shutters, Sizzix embossing folder, and torn masking tape to create this card. Let me know what you think. I am working on a few other cards which I will post in a few days, so stay tuned.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
