Northwoods Cards

I took a class today at For Keeps Sake a great little stamping/scrap-booking store in south county.  It was part of my good friend, Shirley's birthday present to choose a class, she also got to pick out a stamp, she choose the trees.  It was a great class, Mary was a wonderful instructor, we got a lot of little tips we did not know and good color combinations with our Copics.  It was nice to have a girls day.

Gratitude Blog Hop!

This is my first digi design card.  I am so used to rubber this was a transition.  Thank you Maybelle for gifting our design team with two of your beautiful digital design's!  I have many of Maybelle's rubber stamps but her gifts were my first digital's and I must say they are fun to size and play with on the computer.  I am grateful for Maybelle and all my stamping friends, family and friends, and my faith.  Click here to see the other beautiful cards made with Maybelle's design's for the Gratitude Blog Hop: http://whimsyandstarsstudio.typepad.com/blog/
