Just... Hello

Happy Thursday OCS Fans! We're one day closer to Fri-YAY and it's almost the end of January already - wow! 

Some of you may have noticed a few changes in the posting schedule here at OCS. 

I thought I should tell you a bit about myself. I have always done some kind of crafting and took up scrapbooking about 13 years ago. 

It has only  been in the last about 21/2 years that I found my new addiction - card making, stamps and alcohol markers......oh and did I mention paper?! I admit it - my paper collection is ever growing.......and it's funny, I still don't always have just the right paper for a card I'm making - crazy how that happens isn't it?! I know I can't be alone in this dilema.....

Anyway, I will be posting and hopefully providing some inspiration for you here on Thursdays. I am honoured to be part of the super talented group of designers here at OCS. 

Now enough about me - on to this weeks post! Today I am sharing a card using an older stamp from High Hopes called Sitting Kitty with Posey  (P146).


This super cute stamp is coloured with alcohol markers, cut out with a Spellbinders circle die, and "stitched" around the border. I mounted my stamp onto a doily from my stash, added my patterned paper and my "hello". My favourite - gumdrops, finish off my card.
