It's 2015!!

Can you believe it? It is now 2015. Seems like it was just yesterday and I had two young girls playing softball at the ball park five days week, working full time, and retirement was something old people did. Fast forward to 2015 and I have two small Grands, I am retired, and looking forward to my sweet husband retiring in the next three or so years. The only thing that has not changed over the years is my love for scrapbooking. Around four years ago I discovered the art of making cards. So along with my fetish for paper, I now have tubs and drawers full of pretty inks and stamps calling my name!

Today I am posting a card I made for the Fruit Of My Hands Blog and DT. Lot's of cute cards to love on there! Many more to follow. I would love for you to check out Linda's online store. You can look through the product available by clicking on the "photos" link along the top and see all of the new stuff that you just cannot live without!

For my card today I started with my favorite top fold card measuring 11" x 4 1/4". It was scored at 5 1/2".  I cut a 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" base and on that I used a layer of Faber Castell Whipped Spackle over a stencil cut using the Memory Box Heart of Hearts die. Once this was dry, I adhered two cute little fussy cut monsters on pop dots with googly eyes and a banner out of some paper scraps in my stash. That was it! I hope you enjoy my card.
