Stampin’ Up’s Just Sayin’ Wood Mount Stamp set, this is new and unused. A retired favorite of mine. In addition I’m throwing in two of my favorite colors of Hero Arts Inks Tide Pool and Orange Soda.

For a little New Year’s fun I created a card using one of Stampin’ Up’s new sets, It’s a Celebration:

A crazy watercolor wash serves as the base to my bright white fireworks, while some subtly embossed fireworks pull the white background into the framework of the eye catching centerpiece.

    Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week. Doesn’t seem like a lot but balancing work, my family, and taking care of my mom leaves little time for anything else but crafting freshens my soul so it’s important.

  2. Laura Gauthier Turcotte

    what a wonderful card!! My crafting goal for 2017 is to craft more. After 2016, my crafting had taken a back burner due to personal issues. I am determined to get back into the swing of things! Happy New Year!
