To love and to cherish

Hello and happy Sunday. On Friday i received my DT packet from STAMPAVIE and my first cards were made with some of the "older" images from the Rachelle Anne Miller collection :-) I adore those. Probably because i color so many "people" that i was nice for a change to just go GREEN :-) and i used many green markers on this card :-) Nice and easy layout if you found a piece of DP and you have just one pattern of it. This one is the backside of this years popular Making Memories Valentines paper.
Stamps: Stampavie; Rachelle Anne Miller Collection "My Prince Charming"
Embellishments: Debbies Die Cuts, Real Red Stampin up ribbon, Swarovski Chrystals, Hemp,
Tools: Nestabilities, and Doily Lace punch Martha Stewart which is now broken AGAIN - that's my 3 punch! I wonder when the company can fix their production problems!!!
I want to offer you something else on my blog beside inspiration almost everyday. I thought what would help you a little more. There are many, many sketch challenges each week that you can visit for inspiration.. but what if you are right in the middle of a project and you simply don't know how to get started with a horizontal image?! I will from now on file my cards into sections like horizontal, vertical, circle and so on. You can click on that section and will get several layout ideas. That should help you to get your own project finished faster.
Now for the STAMPAVIE blog candy winner... :-)
thank you all for playing - i will have a few more randomly next week.
Here are your random numbers:11
