Two Weeks Gone *poof!*

I don't know what happened to the last two weeks. Well, actually, I do know....I've been in a complete fog since my concussion last month. I'm slowly coming out of it and feeling more "normal", whatever THAT is! I have been playing a bit with goodies from the new catalog, though not as much as I'd like. Because I haven't posted in a while, here are TWO cards using the Affectionately Yours Suite on page 45!

The first card was made to send to my stamping team members, along with some product samples. I used markers to add a touch of color to the Crumb Cake/Night of Navy DSP sheet. I think it turned out well!

The second card used an extra piece that I had colored. I added white dots to make it pop more.

Same DSP, totally different look! I think I might use this one for my sweet hubby. Our 41st anniversary is next week! Note the new In Color Enamel Shapes heart....I will not hoard these embellishments, I will not hoard these embellishments, I will not hoard these embellishments. If I say it enough, maybe it will come true. Oh, who am I kidding?
