A virtual thank you to all my blogland friends!

Wow! I am feeling good about being back to blogging;  the couple of months off was needed though and I feel focussed and ready to create, hopefully inspire and I know get tons of inspiration!  A huge Thank you to everyone for sticking with me during my time off!  This is for you...a virtual " thank you" to all my friends!

I found a lot of inspiration over the past few weeks, and used an article about Jan Tink in Stampin Success to be inspired to create a card and candle using a new Stampin Up Set, Vintage Vogue, being released tomorrow in the new Occasions Mini.  This set is also unmounted (yay!) and I have to say I am SO excited Stampin up added this option.

I am busy preparing for my January Technique class, and this will be one of the cards and projects we do!  Over the next week I will share with you the other two cards we will be making as well.  For the card, I used the Vintage Vogue wheel to create the background tone on tone.  Are you like me and have wheels and never use them? I have a few and told myself I need to start using what I  have, so here you have it!

I also focused on this years incolors, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and added Old Olive after I saw Jan's cards in the magazine.  What a great color to add!

Well, that's all for now!  Hope you are ready to tackle the New Year!  Back to work tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!

ETA:  Here are links to Jan's original cards!  Enjoy!
