I tried to do an accent cluster on this card. I like the effect - I was trying to channel the work of Christine Middlecamp (see links in sidebar). I think I have quite a bit to go before I feel comfortable with the cluster technique. I'm glad I took the leap on this card.

Happy Holidays! I'm finally on Christmas vacation and am looking forward to getting caught up on some things and taking better care of myself. I hope to make blogging a big part of my vacation - we'll just have to wait and see. I wanted to post a few more cards today from the cards I gave my mom. Again, I have a cluster of three very similar cards (almost identical actually). Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday. Until then...Happy Crafting!

I want to start out this post by saying I've been a bad blogger. I'm sorry for being gone so long. In all honesty, I will probably be pretty sporadic through the end of the year. However, I will be back in full force in January - or at least that's what I'm telling myself right now. I sent my mom's box of cards for her friends last Friday and I have a few to post here today. I took 13 pictures in all - so I'm going to post over a few days. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday. Until then...Happy Crafting!
I think the three branch out cards would be perfect to submit for Variation of a Theme to Take Ten magazine. Too bad they need originals!
This was my favorite card hands down. I love coloring images and Basic Grey paper - a match made in heaven.
This card was completely out of comfort zone but I LOVE the end result. Sometimes it's good to color outside the lines.
