hello


looking for the 100 Proof Press/Faber-Castell blog hop...click HERE.


Happy Tuesday!

I have a clean & crisp card for you!

I love the look of embossing...especially when there is a huge contrast:


I made this card for a new gal that started in our department yesterday.  Since I didn't know what she likes, I kept it pretty neutral.  Don't you love that feltie star?  That would be Spanish Wool Felt from thee Lorena Canto...

I'm guessing that you'll see this design alot...you can easily change up the feltie shape to create a whole new look....heart....bloom....

I was inspired by the latest 



That woodgrain circle is from the Hero Arts/Studio Calico set My Happy.  


The Hello sentiment is PTI. The cardbase is from my bloggie buddy Sherry....thanks Sherry!
