Actually had some time to create today.  My friend Susan and I had a Skype crop (I'm in Arizona and she's in NY) and this is what we created.  First Susan instructed me in how to make this oh so pretty feminine card with the Chantilly papers.. a few squares... and some fantastic color ready ribbon.  It was so simple, but what an impact!

Then we used Later Sk8r paper and Wheel of Life stamp set along with some gears cut with the Cricut and the CTMH Artiste cartridge to make the first card.  With Susan's help, I made it up as we went.  It was great to get a little inspiration from the Idea Book.  This will be my Anniversary card for my husband next week.  Check out Susan's blog because her cards are just a little different from mine.  Especially her Later Sk8r card... she added a touch of femininity for her daughter.  Her blog is at .  You can check out some of her other beautiful work also.

It felt really good to sit down and just have some fun for a while.  Now that my room is done... I'll post new pics sometime soon... it's really relaxing to sit in there and find my papercrafting groove.  Also fun to "see" my good friend that I normally only talk to!  Hoping to do that again soon with some more of my northeasterly friends.  Stay warm girls!!
