My thanks to you all! I’m blown away by how many of you filled out my survey.

Whats Coming Up?
For the next couple of days, I’m going to be sharing a couple of feminine cards. Beginning Tuesday, January 26th I’ll be showing you glimpses of my new collection shared at CHA. The collection will be available in stores and online for purchase in March and keep your eyes peeled with retailers for preorder :-) I love the whole collection and had three demos at CHA. On day three, I had to revert back to my demo of the first day – by popular demand – I’ll share that make and take as well. As I’m given more definitive information, I’ll share it here.
Day of Giving Friday
Ah, I have missed you!! If you are new to my blog, Day of Giving Friday comes out a desire to keep the handwritten word alive by our kind tradition of showering with handmade cards. The card shown will go to one of my sweet readers who leaves a comment today for more information, you can read about it on my FAQ List at #11 – just click the link.
An Unexpected Flower
Today I’m sharing a card with an unexpected flower. This fall I received a die that was simply intriguing – Spellbinders Pinecones. (Seriously, click the link and have a gander and what the made version looks like as opposed to my flower!) Oh how I wanted to play with it. This fall was so busy that it passed me by and even though I didn’t make pinecones, I dreamed of how this sweet little die might look as a flower. We’ll what do you know! It makes a sweet, petite flower that simply gets curled around like all spiral flowers. So easy! And now I have a double duty die!! Otherwise this is a simple card that measures 5-1/2″ x 7″ with an actual card base of 5-1/4″ tall by 5-1/2″ wide. I layered Spellbinders Royal Circle on top of the main panel then added Spellbinders Majestic Oval as a frame for this fabulous ‘friend’ sentiment by Quietfire Design – In A Perfect World. The lower part of the card is covered by a panel embossed with Spellbinders Shady Allure.
