SCACD Reopens Today/Gift Set!!!

My oh my... has it really been a month since my last post?  It does feel like a lifetime ago!  First thing on my agenda is to wish you...

***Happy New Year!!!***

I hope that you've enjoyed lots of relaxation time and tons of fun with your family and friends!  Me?  Well... I spent the last three weeks laying low and reading a bunch - trying to get over a nasty virus.  It was a doosie!  I sure hope that you've been able to steer clear of it.

One good thing about 'having to lie around and do nothing' is that I became acquainted with my Kindle, which I received a few months ago for my birthday.  I didn't realize what I've been missing!  I LOVE it :D  I love that it's easy on the eyes; that it's light and easy to hold; that 'turning' pages is a breeze... If you love reading, you just might want to put a Kindle on your Wish List!  Right now, I'm reading Halfway to Forever by Karen Kingsbury (Book 3 in the Forever Faithful trilogy).  Have you read any good books lately?  What authors do you enjoy?

To celebrate Susana's REOPENING the store today, I've created a quick and simple gift set.  I'm not sure where I got the box template, but it is a print, cut and assemble project!  I've embellished it with  Diamond Stickles  and Opal Viva Decor Paper Pen.  Now to decide what to put inside for a special someone :D

For the 'matching' card, I decided to use one of the fabulous stamps by Carmen Medlin for SCACD.  Her Caged Heart is from the Reflections Fantasy Collection.

The image is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with copics.  Her dress was given a few coats of Crystal Glamour Dust Paint.  Can you see the sparkle???

Although I've used another die for the bird cage, Susana has an awesome Memory Box die *Here*  If you look closely, you'll see that I've embossed the die cut using Leaves embossing folder by Crafts-Too.  I adore this embossing folder!!!  Did ya notice the pearls on the bird cage and scattered around the card?  I made 'em with my Opal Paper Pen :D  Speaking of paper pens, the Graphite Paper Pen came in handy for the bird's eye...  I don't know what I'd do without my paper pens!!!

And now... Just thought you might like to know that...
Awesome New Products 
are Now Available!!!

I hope that you've enjoyed your visit with me today!  I know that I've missed YOU!!!  Here's to a wonderful 2012 filled with love and friendships ♥  See you soon!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

Happy New Year! Love your creation. Stunning! Have had a Kindle on my wish list for 2 yrs now, but Santa evidentally doesn't think I've been good enough! LOL. Enjoy Karen Kingsbury's books, however have not read the one you just finished. Will have to pick it up when I'm out... I just finished one by Karen Robards..Justice. Great if you like intrigue, mystery and suspense.
