Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

May 2011 Card Chain Challenge

If you've never done a Card Chain Challenge, try this one over at Lily Pad Cards (formerly hosted by Deborah on her blog).  I've been able to participate in a number of CCCs as we call them - they are such fun!  You only have to make one card and you receive a beautiful card in the mail.  Over the last year I've received cards from England, Denmark, Canada, to name a few.  And made new friends along the way. 

The process changed a bit - now you have to make your card FIRST!  Before, we signed up and knew who was getting the card prior to making it.  So check out the challenge and get your card made and linked up by May 6th at 11:59 PST.  Here's my card all ready to mail once I know who's getting it:
I used Hero Arts new Designer papers and a fun clear set Type with these darling little typewriter key messages.  Also used some papers from Basic Grey's Sweet Threads 6x6 paper pad and my favorite string twine by May Arts.  Oh, and let's not forget my favorite texture stamp - the Envelope Pattern by Hero Arts.  Who will get this card???  Hope they like it!
