44- First Sliding Card

This is my first sliding card- both the snake and the fish slide back and forth. I'm happy with it, but there are lots of changes that I would make for the next one...I need to use bigger animals next time...I think it will be a cat on grass!

43- First Background Card

I went to Sheila's today to stamp and got to use her background stamp. I have to say I am in love with the background stamps- must get some!! The only thing I would do different is that I would use the embossing boddy to get rid of the static on the paper- there was a lot of black powder that I could not remove. But all and all I do like this card

42- Flap Card

This card was made to satisfy the technique challenge on Splitcoast this week- a flap card. I wanted to do something with leaves this time- I think it's pretty cute!

41- Thank You Card

I actually made this card at the party I hosted but I hadn't posted it because I didn't have the stamp set to reproduce it...but now I do!! Yay!

40- CC159 Challenge Card

Sheila has now gotten me started with the SplitCoast Stampers weekly colour challenges- every week she and I will do this. I think it will be pretty fun- it's a nice challenge. This week it had to be bashful blue, grey and white- not my favourite colour combo but I think this turned out to be a nice clean looking card. I wanted it to be fresh and crisp...if that makes sense...

I saw quite a few of these on splitcoast but thought that they were dresses that you buy and paste on- I didn't realize that you could make the dress! It is a simply said heart for the bodice and strips for the skirt. LOVE IT!!!

29- Stamping Day at My Place

I hosted my first party since becoming a demonstrator- here is a pic of Tammy, Becca and Simmie stamping away- good times!!

I did my first triangle fold card- I am pretty happy with it. Here it is closed and open- I love it!!!

PS- I am aware that my apartment looks bleak and depressing- you can see all of my artwork lying in the corner because I've always viewed this place as a temporary residence and never bothered decorating!

28- Stamping at Chantale's

Here are cards that I made today at Chantale's house- I'm pretty happy with them. Especially the dahlia with the scallop punch- so pretty!! I think it might be my most favorite card that I've made to date
