... like a snowball rolling down a hill

The momentum is building like a snowball rolling down a hill so I got a few things done within the past week or so.  Several more are a work in progress but not done just yet.

Here are the latest creations.

Sister Card # 2 - The scan is really bad; the colors are much softer IRL and are closer to a soft blue/tealish color.  The snowflakes are glisteny (yea... that's not in Merriam-Webster, I know) and the edge of the word block is all shiny.  The outside reads "Winters must be cold for those with no warm memories."  On the inside, I wrote "Thanks for the warmth."

 Products used:  all PP:  Heidi Grace; cardstock:  Recollections; 
punches:  Martha Stewart (snowflake) & EK Success (label);  
fonts:  deadly english & calibri; pen: Sakura Gelly Roll.
ink:  ColorBox robin's egg & Maya mist Iridescent Pearl.

Next up are a few pages I did for page kits for the LSS.

A Day With The Girls...  I'm actually anxious to get this one back after it's done being needed at the store.  I have several more embellishments, a subtitle and (dare I say it!?) journaling to add.  The scan is awful because I was in a hurry and hadn't loaded the good scanning software I have on my new computer (which I've had for nearly a year; goes to show how much I've been scanning in the past year.  oy.) These pictures were taken celebrating our friend, Beth.  Bittersweet day for all of us she left behind in PA.  Sniff.  (Sorry for the tiny photo... these 2-pagers are hard to fit on here.)  I was glad to hear that the kits sold out in 2 days.  Whew... no need for the panic attack. 

Products used:  All PP & diecut:  My Mind's Eye; 
punches:  Martha Stewart & EK Success; 
alphabet:  American Crafts; ink: ColorBox creamy brown

True Love... I actually made this one up last year for a page kit but for stupid procrastinating reasons (who ME?!), I never got the photo printed & the kits up to the store.  And since it's all Valentinesy (Merriam-Webster is going to shut me down), I just held onto it til now.  I plan to frame this one and give it to my sister, Terry.   

Products used:  no clue since I did this a year ago.  
I'm pretty sure the PP is from several different manufacturers and 
I know I used the AccuCut machine for the scallop border, 
artisan shape and scallop square.  I'm pretty sure I used the Slice for the tag.  
I know the brown cardstock is Bo Bunny & the alphabet is American Crafts.  
And I know that's my awesome sister & brother-in-law.    :0)

Big weekend of crafting ahead of me and lots to prepare for so I'll be posting more over the weekend.  Thanks for stopping by... 

And thanks for all the support & encouragement after being blogless for so long.  It gave me a lot of extra bounce in my step last week!
