After a couple weeks of house guests, I have my craft room back :-) We have guests coming tonight but with DD#2 gone until Sunday we can use her room for them. The guests are my sister (upline), her husband and son - so we HAVE to have somewhere to stamp :-)
I got some new toys in the last month or so and have not had time to play with them. Loved getting into them this morning and trying my hand at some ideas.
The first is the Technique Tuesday for February - crimped diamond.
Doesn't the crimping make a nice background?

The next card uses some of the items from the current special offer Filled With Love

Then I opened up some of my pre-order items for the Mini Occasions catalog (starts Jan 4)and played with the Red Glitter Paper.
Stamp Set: Blowing Kisses
Paper: Real Red, Very Vanilla, DSP Patterns Love, Red Glitter Paper

Another new stamp that I have is a personalized trade mark stamp. I love it! Makes the card look professional.
I have more to play with later today but have to run some errands first. Glad it is warmer but the damp makes it feel cold in the house. The snow is almost all gone and looks more like a fall day outside.
