Hi! I just want to take a few minutes to say Thank You to everyone who takes a few minutes in their day to stop by here to see what I have done, and a HUGE Thank You to all of you who post your own things as inspiration! I started this blog last February because I wanted a chance to be on the Club Anya design team since I loved those stamps so much. I was very nervous about having a blog because I wasn't sure I'd know what to say. I still struggle with that almost every post. But this has opened a whole new wonderful world to me. I have found all kinds of wonderful new stamps, lots of inspiration from some AMAZINGLY talented people, and have met just the kindest most supportive people. Thank you all SO much! OK, on to some cards!
My first card is a birthday card that I made for our school lunch lady. I used Happy Chef's body and transplanted Teacher Anya's head onto it. There is a lot more sparkle than the picture shows. I am not a great photographer and I have been experimenting with my photo's. I want more depth and texture to show so I have been taking my pictures with no flash and an OTT light as the main lighting source. I think the texture and popped up parts are showing better, but it doesn't capture the sparkle as well.

I used Taylored Expressions Sketch #87 for my second card. When I was making this, at different stages I kept thinking something was missing and so I would show my DH who would say,"Yep, something's missing." After about the third time he looked over my shoulder and said,"It needs more macaroni." I need to slap him!!
