Yes I'm doing hard returns, but I am still having the line issue with blogger, I'm going to try out some of the suggestions I have received both via comments and emails!
The above card is actually a commissioned project and is my 'proto-type'. It is a welcome baby card for twin boys. I wanted to keep the colors simple yet keep it elegant.
I used the houndstooth embossing folder as the background. The recipe is very simple, I cut the blue card stock to measure 5 1/2 X 4 1/4" folded. Next, I used a scallop/dot punch from Fiskars to do the edge. Under this edge I attached white card stock so it looks a little like lace. Then you attach the white houndstooth, layer on the green paper, and the image is a whipper snapper image done with copic markers. The tag is 3-d with pop dots, I used a soft orange eyelet to set it of. Other embellishments include green ribbon, and raindrop green dots.
Its a really simple project, and I love the way it turned out. On other news, my Michael's trip yesterday and all the 'booty' finally found a new home this morning, I put it on a shelf under the table I use for folding clothes. Within easy reach for me to play with the goodies!
I'd really like to hear from you -- my blog friends. I enjoy your comments, what have you been creating?
I am sponsoring an altered coaster swap, the thread for SCS can be found by clicking here. If needed I'll even send you some coasters (either square or round) for you to create a project. Come on peole, join the swap, it promices to be alot of fun!
Don't forget that you must post to the thread if you are signing up. I had a surprise swapper last time I posted a swap. It turned out ok, however I like to know what is involved with my swaps!

It is a little strange to me that I am more of a stamper than a scrapbooker, the opposite was true for many years. Now it is a I will have a 'need' to scrapbook, such was the case with Melissa's little book. It was so much fun to alter an exsisting tabbed board book to meet my needs and expectations. I really like the layout of the pages and the slight distressed look. I know it doesn't show up, but most of the pages do have what I like to call 'over stamping' which just means the paper may be patterned, but I tweaked it a little with some more images.Stamp Happy, have a great night!
