Just wanted to let you all know that I am going to be even more scarce for the next month than I have been for the last month. You see, I will be traveling quite a bit. Once to see my daughter and once for a much needed vacation.

I did want to share a card I made for my Spring class. I am calling this the window box card. My friend, Jane, taught me how to make this card last Fall and I haven't been able to stop making them. There is a little shadow box in the square where I stamped and then paper pieced the house and trees. I made a card using this same layout at Halloween for a good friend. She seemed to like it and I thought it might make a nice Spring card. How about that MS tulip punch? Isn't it just the cutest??? As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be mine.

Thank you all for putting up with my sporadic postings lately. There has been a lot going on in my life but I am hoping it will settle down in a month or so and I can get back to more regular posting.

My friend, Gail, bought tickets to a princess party for her granddaughter's birthday and asked me if I could make a little something for her. "Just a little card" she said. Well, you know I couldn't do just a little card. I had to make this cute little purse for her to put the card in. I received a Big Shot Express from my DH for Christmas this year and I have been itching to make something with it. This was the perfect excuse. I used the Lizzie stamp from A Muse Artstamps and cut out the letters using one of my Sizzix alphabet dies. Was wanted to try the "lace" border look using a border punch and my crimper. Well, hello, it is so cute! I used a piece of striped ribbon for the handle. Gail and her granddaughter thought it was really cute. Can't wait to see what I make next with my new toy.
