Updating with some recent cards

I thought I might update my blog.  On a personal note.....We are enjoying some great "Spring Weather" here in Arizona.  I have been trying to get a few things done at home and after finally getting some energy back after my bout with pneumonia I found that I was in a creative mode. 

The first card uses a Bunny Stamp and Easter greeting from Firecracker Designs, and the Eggs are from Michael Strong.  Corner punch from Martha Stewart and paper from Club Scrap and stash

The 2nd cards is one I did using a Technique Junkie chalk technique for the background, papers and greeting from Club Scrap.  Flower Stamp and Butterflies from Michael Strong, paper flower from stash and border punch from Martha Stewart.
 This 3rd card that I did for Michael Strong uses a background made with the Brick Wall Embossing folder from Tim Holtz and the "Flower Pot" stamp from Michael Strong with the "Mother-in-Law" tongue leaves from a tutorial found on Michael Strong's Blog page.

 If you are a Michael Strong fan, you can find his blog and you can find information on the yahoo group here.

This last card is one I did for a "Masculine Themed" swap I did for another Online Paper Crafting group that I belong to.  It uses papers from Club Scrap, the Car and Greeting stamp from Tim Holtz
and another "Depth of Field" Background from Technique Junkies.

I hope  you've enjoyed seeing what I've been "playing" with.  If you would like to get involved in a fun PaperCrafting Online group check out and tell them I sent you :)
It's a fun place to learn and share some great artistic techniques for cards, scrapbooks and altered book projects. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Diana, Love the Mother In Law tongue MS card! The brick wall behind it was a super idea.
