Hello There!

Well, I went to take a picture of a recent card I made to post on my blog and my batteries were dead! Sooooooooo.... instead I thought I'd post a "yummy" picture of Jolie - with CHOCOLATE ALL OVER HER FACE! .....along with a glint of mischievousness in her eyes - gotta love it!

Anyway, I do hope to re-charge my batteries (my camera batteries that is) tonight and take the picture tomorrow so that I can actually post a new creation on my blog!

Happy Smiles and hugs too!

Steppin' it up a notch

Hello to ALL!!!

I was having some fun altering this first card (below) for a workshop a couple of weeks ago and realized I wasn't just "altering" the card but "steppin' it up a notch" too! Gosh, I feel like I am on Emeril Lagasse's show!!!! :-)

See if you can find the difference between the two cards....... My photography is not the best so look closely!

Both cards use basically the same supplies and tools except for a little bit of silver cord and brads added into the 2nd card.

Here are the ingredients I used....

Stamp Set - Snow Swirled

Cardstock - Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Whisper White

Ink - Pacific Point, Baja Breeze

Accessories - Blender Pens, Dimensionals, Whisper White Taffeta ribbon, Silver cord, Filigree Designer and Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Silver Brads, White Gel Pen, Paper Piercer and Scallop Edge, 1/4 circle, 1/2 circle punches

It's kinda fun to step it up a little bit from one card to the next! A good challenge indeed!!!
Wishing all of you a lovely weekend!
I do hope to post again real soon!
Hugs and smiles galore,
~avril :-)
