...it's amazing how much can happen in a few days! Getting back on the computer after a five day break was just...wow. So many e-mails. So many new announcements. So many.
But, I digress.
I'm here to share a card that was published in the Jan/Feb '12 issue of Papercrafts, ask for your help, and share a few links. 

Using some pretty GCD Studios Donna Salazar paper - perfect for vintage cards.

Love my glitter. :) and um, yes, that butterfly really is that sparkly, if not more so. ;)

My first (and so far, only) triple bow on a card. Lol, what can I say? It just looked weird with only two!

And now for my call for help - this card was published in the online Papercrafts, which I, not being a subscriber, do not have access to. I tried contacting the mag, but for some reason, my e-mail got sent back (???). If any of you out there could e-mail me a picture of my card in the magazine, I'd be eternally grateful. :)

Now for the links...
I SO want THIS set. I love Jane Austen, and those pretty silhouettes, but seriously, the deal breaker is that frame image (and coordinating die). Must. Have.

And while we're on the topic of new products, what new CHA releases are you looking forward to? I have SO many, but I'm especially excited for THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS, THIS, and THIS! Alas, being on a limited budget, I'd be surprised if I ended up with half of those by summer CHA, but I will be getting THIS one - love love love!

I tell you, THIS site is a wealth of inspiration and information, and not just for papercraft related things! I recently got a B&W Nook, and have been looking for good books to read, and THIS little discussion is going to be so handy. ;)

Speaking of books, I recently read THIS one. A little obvious and dramatic at parts, but I enjoyed it. :)

Well, I won't bore you with anything else - thanks so much for the sweet comments, and have a blessed day!


  1. This is really beautiful and soft! The sparkly butterfly adds so much to the card. You're so good at tying crinkly ribbon!

  2. Gorgeous card Clare. I can see it on my on-line version but as it an exclusive it doesn't let you save or do anything else with it.

  3. gorgeous card Clare... this blue is so beautiful!

  4. I am a big big fan of crinkled seam binding! I like to use it a lot on my cards and projects! Love your triple bow! This is so elegant and beautiful!

  5. You're funny girlie! (And I like your cards)


Thank you so much for taking time to leave me a comment - it is always much appreciated. :)
