Happy Hellos

Wow, ladies, I am so sorry...I haven't posted to my blog in like.....forever! Things have been really crazy for us lately. We've been busy negotiating with our insurance company, in hopes that we soon will have an idea where we will be living. After all, we have to be out of the US by the end of this month! Still wondering where we will be going next, but I'm sure it will all work itself out soon.

Isn't this a pretty card? Recently, Debbie Moczek from Stampin Up did a workshop with my scrapbooking group at Sun n Fun. Lots of us mentioned we hadn't used chipboard, so she designed this card to show us how easy it is. We glued the patterned paper onto the chipboard, then sanded the edges and middle, and finally used a dauber to sponge ink onto all the edges. After we glued the chipboard to the card, we stamped the happy hellos, then used a circle punch to cut it out and put it inside the circle. Leaves are from the small oval punch, then send through the crimper on an angle to get the veined effect. I think this card is so pretty, and it was so easy to do that I'm sure I'll use a lot more of my chipboard now.
