LOC Cherished Gems

Hello - it is great to see you today!!  I realised that I have been busy with some projects but have not posted for a few days - so unlike me!  It is not that I have lost interest in you, things just got away with me....I am working ahead with some DT work to cover while I am away seeing my family in New Zealand with my DD2 - only 13 sleeps now - wahoo! 

I am slowly clearing my desk and rather than just put things away I decided to out together a CAS style card with the gorgeous layered flower from Layers of Color - they are from the Flowering Gems art stamp set - aren't they delish.  I was most impressed how easy it was to make a pretty card with just one layered flower!

I popped the second flower up on a dimensional, you can get a better idea of the dimension below.  The DP is from a Blog Candy that I won months ago and although I have been cutting into bits and pieces of it, I decided I need to seriously 'attack' it and get more of these cards made - I am enjoying the ease of creating this way, while I concentrate on the up and coming projects.

Speaking of which - I don't think I am letting out any 'national secrets' when I tell you that Layers of Color has some exciting New Releases coming up next month - you are NOT going to miss these....and....shhhh...just thought you might like to know...they are releasing something very new and EXCITING - keep watching this space for more into and check over at the Layers of Color Blog for the details as they become available.  have you joined the SNR Group - you have the opportunity for discounts and SNEAK PEEKS that are not available anywhere else - you can find it here - we would love to see you!
