Been Too Long!!

I have been very remiss in my duties as a blog hostess as of late! One of the downsides to starting a new adventure is getting into the routine of that new adventure! So, I must apologize to anyone who happened by and has not seen anything new. But I do have have some new card samples for you and updates. The first picture you see is my wonderful assistant, my baby girl Molly. She loves to help especially when I'm trying to cut cardstock or put ribbon on my projects!

Over the first weekend of this month I attended a seminar in Holland, MI hosted by Jackie Bolhuis, a Director of SU!. This is an awesome and exciting event which whets my appetite for convention which is in July. There was a Make & Take on Friday evening in which we made 25 cards all using sets out of the Spring Mini. If you haven't seen the Spring Mini yet get your hands on because the new sets are fabulous! I have just a few posted here today and I'll be posting more over the next week.

The first card on the left is created with the Big Blooms set and Happy Everything. A very bright and spring feeling birthday card. We used our gel pen to create the doodling around the Certainly Celery piece.

The card to the right uses Doodle This and the Doodle Alphabet. I changed this slightly from the samples they had to what you see now. On the sample provided they staples on the Regal Rose and Apricot Appeal strips and I didn't care for that. There was also a staple on the tab punch (I love this punch!) and I opted to use my gel pen. That was creativity is all about!

We made a total of 25 cards and I will try to get all 25 posted for you to see. They are some excellent samples for these sets.

I was successful in my quest for a Cuttlebug and I just love using it! This card uses the flower dots embossing folder and the SAB set Delight in Life & Happy Harmony. I really do like the combo of Black and Cool Caribbean together.

I'll be posting more pics of samples made with that also in the coming days.
So here's to wishing you a Happy Spring and Happy Stamping!!
