Just saying hello

Hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
I had lots of fun making food, wrapping presents, surprising people, and just being with my family. :)
Ooo, and I got some new things too (like twinkling H2O's) that I'm figuring out right now - I'm kinda stepping out of my patterned paper comfort zone, and messing around more with stamps. It's actually really fun, experimenting with this and that - it makes me really feel creative. :)

So, speaking of creative, thought from now until the first of January, I'd share with you a card that uses/utilizes something (a product, technique, etc.) that at the beginning of 2010, I never thought I'd do/try.

First off, a card I made for my Hero Arts WAD...

I hadn't done anything aside from plain stamping or paper piecing on my projects until I got this beautiful stamp, so this watercolor stamping was really new.

Well, just a quick post as I have a lot of catching up to do - thing to organize, rooms to clean, blogs to visit, etc. ;)

Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day!
