New Artwork

This is a card I made for the 50th Wedding Anniversary of an amazing couple.  The picture does not show some of the details as well as I wish but I hope you can see them.  The background colonial white card stock has been embossed.  I am really loving the new embossing folders Close to My Heart has given us to work with.  This very simple technique adds so much interest to all types of paper crafting.  Also used on this card is our Color Ready Ribbon.  This product is so versatile.  It can be used in its natural state as a white ribbon or it can be inked in what ever color the project is.

The trip to Israel continues

A valiant effort was made, but unfortunately the book for Israel has not been finished.   In May, our core scrapbooking group took our annual trip to Gastonburg for a 5 day cropping retreat.  Several days were dedicated to the book, but once again I had totally underestimated how much time it would take to get it done.  Working on the journaling alone turned into a mini bible study.  I have needed to put it aside for a few months to focus on monthly workshops and annual convention for Close to My Heart (much more on convention and the new book will be posted soon).  I have high hopes for getting back to it before the end of the summer.  Stay tuned.
