Happy Birthday to my baby girl!

20 years ago we welcomed Kathryn Elizabeth Wheeler to our family! She was the Dorchester New Year's baby! We are so proud of the young woman she has become and wish her all the best as she returns to school!

This is the card I made for it! The paper is from the new pack available free during will love it! I was totally inspired by this card from Sandy! This paper coordinates so nicely with the 2011-2013 In colors. It has a lovely vintage tinge to it and I know you will be seeing tons of cards made with this paper!

Take a look at the edges of the paper...I used both the new edgelets as well as the new embossing folders that are available in the new mine which launches on Jan 4th!

Enjoy your day...we are in the middle of a blizzard so won't be venturing too far from home today!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Stamping Friends....hope all your dreams and wishes come true in 2012. My friend Lisa posted a card first thing this morning so she is my inspiration for kick starting my stamping year!

This is a money holder. I made a bunch of these for Christmas and this one is for a friend to load up with cash for a wedding she is attending. There are so many new things in the Occasions Mini that launches this week, including the dies that will scallop the bottom of the card! This adds such a lovely finish to any card. Never forget to decorate your envelop and here you can see I stamped it then added some bling.
