Have you ever heard of Blitsy??? Neither had I until an online blogger advertised about it on her blog. I went to their website...and now I'm a big fan!!! They have great scrapping supplies (or card making if you're more into that)....so go check them out!

And right now...they're offering a $200 gift card to their store!!! Wouldn't that be a great way to start the new year???? :)

Wishing you all a very blessed New Year! :) Here's to 2012 being the best one ever!!!!!!! :)

thankfulness

DL.Art Thankful Thursdays is having a What are you thankful for? giveaway. The prize is a $15 card to your pick of Starbucks, Michaels or Joann's. Of course I'd go for Michael's --  you can never get too many scrapping supplies...and it's one of my favourite art supply stores. :)

So the challenge is to post a picture of something you are thankful for (not a person). For me, as far as crafting goes -- I am thankful for my new Cuttlebug machine. It was a wedding present...and I absolutely love it! It makes cardmaking so much easier and the cards get an elegant look without a whole lot of extras.

Back with a bang!

I'm back!!! :D I've been doing some serious crafting the last few weeks....and I finally have some pictures taken to showcase it all. So here goes...

I've always been impressed when we got a handmade thank you card. I don't know what it is about them, but I love them. Maybe it's the extra bit of effort I always thought the person stuck into the card or something. But whatever it was, when it came to thank you cards (for my wedding gifts) I was determined I would make my own. After all, the first few weeks are kinda slow as you get situated, etc. (especially during the winter months)...and I thought I'd have lots of time anyways.

It wasn't until I counted together how many cards I actually needed to make that I understood just exactly what I was undertaking!!! 100+ cards....and I had to come up with something that I liked...and would actually want to create over 100 times!!! ...not to mention the fact that it had to be something that I would STILL like it after they were all made!!! :p

but I was determined to try...

First off, I received a CuttleBug for a wedding gift from our youth choir. :D To say I was impressed is putting it lightly....I was ECSTATIC!!!

Using the Cuttlebug Organic Border Embossing folder and the folder that had come with the Cuttlebug, I came up with a design that I absolutely love! :D


I did made a variety of colours...and two different types of butterflies....just so I wouldn't get bored from the making the same old, same old. :p The "thanks" stamp is from the Fiskars Latte Love Coffee Tear Friend clear stamp set. It was fun....but I was glad when they are all made and sitting in the box ready for the signing. :D




Whatcha think???
