Swan Dive & New Card

As some of you know I took a not so graceful swan dive down my stairs last week. How anyone can fall down 2 stairs and manage to not only break their arm but manage to shove one bone into the hand bones ; splintering them-well only me! I really wish that we had a nanny cam so I could have submitted it to America' Funniest Home Videos - One second I was up in the air, next flipped and then thud!

Well before then I had finished a few cards that I wanted to share. First a magnolia card, I really liked the Birthday Tilda after doing her for the recipe swap so I decide to do another card with her. I used BG Ambrosia papers for the background with bazzil card stock for the white card base to give it strength. I used BG brads also in the Ambrosia line and used the top note die to pop Tilda up on. Shei is colored with copics. Jacque has converted me to stamping on Curious Iridescent Cryogen White paper - it is fantastic - it has such a great sheen ; it just sparkles!!

My next card is a CASE of a BG design using their Archaic line. It uses everything from that line except for the ribbon which is from Michaels. The small pull out tag call be used to write your seniment on.

Have a great day and thank you for coming by today!!


  1. Laurel, she is just precious!! So sorry to hear about your mishap!!! Feel better real soon, sweetie!!! I am so happy you like "MY" paper...I agree that it is, by far, the very best to use for Copics...that tiny bit of mica just seems to make those images come alive!!! Big hugs for you...Jacque
