Cherish Baroque Motifs

This is a card using the beautiful set Baroque motifs. It's so romantic, and the possibilities are endless.

I've been busy creating an entry for Convention Display Stamper. I just mailed it off today. If they select me, I believe I would be given supplies to make samples for convention, and that would be so cool!

I'm going to convention this year with my wonderful upline. I can't wait! It's going to be so much fun.

Here's the deets on the card:

Stamps: Baroque motifs

Paper: River Rock, Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla Cardstock

Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, River Rock Classic Stampin Pads

Accessories: Halfback pearl (pretties kit), Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon

Hope you enjoy!

Infinite Goodness Quick Card

This is a very simple thank you card using the level 2 hostess set "Infinite Goodness." I love simple cards sometimes. Layers and ribbons are great, but sometimes simple can be very effective, especially if you are concerned about overpowering your message.

Plus simple cards are really quick ;)

My first card upload

I am really happy with this one. It uses a template that was created by Juli Smith, an SU demonstrator, on a Stampin Up Demonstrator website named SUDSOL. She and I have a lot in common! We are both SU demos, both Catholic, and have both been involved with Marriage Encounter - she much more than me. You can visit her blog here .
Any comments on my first card would be greatly appreciated!
