Thanks Ever So Much



I've got 2 posts for you today and I am determined not to forget them like I did my Play Date Cafe post yesterday. Doh!!  Major blond moment but I have an excuse as I got an early Christmas present - an iPad!  I was very excited and more than a little distracted so I totally spaced on my post.  It's not going to happen today though (even if those Angry Birds are calling my name...)  Okay, onto the card.  This is only the second time I've managed to play along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  I love the inspiration photos Kim provides and I must play along more often (add that to the New Year's Resolution List!).  I'm also going to enter this little number over at Young Crafters Unite's die cutting challenge.  


I was thrilled today to have my twig and ribbon card featured on  Freehand Scraps' Ten Fabulous Christmas Ideas post.  Pop over if you have a chance because they have some super cute ideas.  :)

The accolades are rolling in for you lately - I love it :)
I've got to remember to get something going for YCU this round - after all I use dies all the time. Love the gems & the butterscotch embossing powder looks so cool. I've got to dip into trying some colours other than the standard ones....

Wow, I love how the gold embossing just pops off the page, and the rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for joining us for the SPARKS Challenge :)
