Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays Everyone! For those of you stealing a few minutes away today, thanks for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends.

I started my business this year and wanted a card to send out to all of my wonderful customers that supported me as I got it under way. I needed about 15, so I wanted a pretty simple design to mass produce.

This DSP is from the Bella Bleu pack. I had seen them used together in the current mini catalog and just hadn't had a chance to put them together. I tried them with Kraft, but there wasn't enough contrast for me, so I pulled out the Soft Suede. It seems to have become a winter favorite of mine *wink*.

The circle was cut and embossed with my Nesties. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE them??? I discovered one more little trick last night. I left the circle in the die after I embossed it and stamped my images. This allowed me to stamp within my embossed area. You can use this technique if you want to sponge or chalk inside the embossed edge. So many options with these guys.

If you're one of my wonderful customers, your own personal card is on it's way!

I hope they like it....TFL!
