Crafting Again!

Just returned from a fabulous trip to Thailand - traveling with my oldest son who lives and teaches in Japan.  What fun we had exploring, eating, and relaxing!  I have been back one week and it has been a shock to come back from 94/sunny to 30/wet, 4:30 AM wake-ups and grading papers.  I'm already planning and saving for my next adventure :-)

It was a delight to get back into my little craft room to make up some cards for the workshop group Sunday.  These are two of the five we made.  The first uses CTMH Clementine paper. I used an older Card Abilities sketch for the design.  With only a few days to put a workshop together, the Sketch file is a life saver!

The second card was a big favorite with my crafters. It uses La Belle Vie papers and Jardin stamp set. Only the black piece is designed paper - the others are all random stamped with Smokey Plum ink and Blush pigment ink.  This pattern comes from the CTMH "Make It From Your Heart" booklet.  I have used this pattern with several other paper/stamp combinations. It is really a versatile sketch.
