My Creative Time Design Team Day

Finally, I'm back online! Whew. Didn't think I would make it....yes, I'm officially admitting to being addicted to the internet. Sigh. Moved the modem to another room last night and in the process was unable to reconnect to the internet. Barely slept waiting for morning so I could call tech support and fix it all up again. {Voluntarily calling tech support should tell you how desperate I had become!!!!} After nearly three hours on the phone {I HATE the telephone!} I am finally back online and happy to be able to share my project. Yay!!!! 

For my project this week, I was assigned the Many Greetings set from the new release. I love this awesomely versatile set. It has a little bit of everything!

And now my card. I love this sentiment. It's perfect for a thank you, a gift enclosure, or a just because. I embossed the background paper and lightly brushed with sandpaper so the tiny dots would show up even more prominently. 

I used one of my handmade flowers, yet another new version and an easy one too {will share a tutorial soon.} added to a heart popped off a dark background for dimension. The leaves are spellbinders.

Sheer ribbon, button, crochet thread and a pearl center for fun!

and the adorable sentiment. :) I stamped this one in rich cocoa ink on a tiny label die. I like the subtle-ness of the brown versus a stark black with the light colored background pattern paper.
