Wow, it's been nearly a month since I posted last, but I do have some good reasons. A trip to Disneyland, the flu (that's a nasty business!!) that invaded my home for nearly two weeks, and my birthday (yesterday) all kept me crazy busy.
But I did sit down last night and play along with the very FIRST challenge over at
If you don't know Gloria, she is an amazingly talented designer who has created for several wonderful Design Teams (and she's a former 365 Cards DTer), and now she has her own challenge blog.
First up is to create a project featuring your signature style.
Boy that's hard to describe, but this card that I whipped up last night pretty much does it
I chose some double-sided Crate Paper patterned paper loaded with hearts and it became the card base. The inside looks like it was painted with watercolors
And it's sturdy enough to just use the patterned paper without sticking it on cardstock.
I would generally describe my style as CAS, but I incorporated my favorite items/techniques into this particular card.
I added some silk ribbon, stitching, and heart-shaped pearls (Doodlebug Designs). This card is all ready to give to one of my Valentines (my hubby & two daughters).
