a birthday card

This is a card that I made earlier this month using the fanfare paper pack and stickers for the banner.  I also used the stamps from the Typeset workshop to go, all from Close to my Heart.  I used a challenge to give me the ideas for my hubbies birthday card, but did not get around to posting it for the challenge.

Studio J from Close to my Heart

I never thought I would get satisfaction from digital scrapbooking.  I love working with computers, when they work, but they can be very frustrating to learn something new on.  So it was with some hesitation that I signed up for a membership to a year of digital scrapbooking with Studio J from Close to my Heart.  I wish now I had more time to play on it!  I love the results and the many options that you have since it is all online and you can make changes and on and on.... lots of videos on youtube for ideas and tips on using the program that is SUPER EASY to use.  So without further chatter I thought I would share a few of my most recent layouts, I make them, order them and they are printed in exceptional quality with page protectors for my albums.  I also get the jpg files to keep for future projects.
and last but not least some shots I took of the storm clouds from two separate storms and the two double rainbows we had on August 21 here in Ontario.

August Stamp of the Month

Wow, August already is a week old! I am behind and have been absent, I am sorry, too many things to do and too little time, the usual story for everyone.  So without further ado, here is my card using the Close to my Heart August stamp of the month "Wicked".

I just love this stamp set, it has tons of possibilities, the lady, is actually a witch, that I stategically cut to make a classy lady, dispite the striped socks :).  This is a birthday card for someone in the future.  The background uses the background stamp that comes with the set as well.  I blocked out the wording between the brackets to replace it with the Hats off to you.  You can find out more about this stamp set on my web site link to Close to my heart.  Enjoy and have a great day, I hope to do a few more updates this week.
