Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of my wonderful blogging friends. I want to take this time to thank all of you who stayed in contact me through some difficult times last year (2012). Besides my mother being ill I had other problems with family members which I can not get into. Though it was a stressful time I was blessed knowing the Lord was with me through it all and that many of you sent your love. Thank You.:)

Now, I also have been thinking about card making, what is the style I love the most. Many of the things I bought during the years have not been used. I have found I love clean and simple the most.
Is this not elegant? :) I copied this from Dawn Olchefske . Then I found another site to show how to do the  Su textured embossing folders so they would not crease. Instead of using the B plate, you make a shim the size of the embossed item. Works like a charm.
I made several of these, since I needed many thank you cards.

Recipe
paper: Flourishes classic ivory
Stamp: Fresh vintage, because I care (sentiment)
Other:  SU textured impressions (Marcos)

Well, you all have a wonderful New Year

Hi Bekky and Happy New Year! I am sorry I haven't been around much lately but I am so pleased to see you back in blog land with us. I hope your mother is doing better and your other family matters are all sorted for you.
Your card today is so very elegant and I love the color of your base and the way you have framed the sentiment with the pearls. Such a gorgeous creation to start the New Year and I look forward to following your work throughout 2013. xx
