Love is in the air....




Can you believe the Month of December is gone and we are well into January already?? Holy cow it just flew by for me. Seems like we just did the wrapping paper hop last week....Well here we are again with another AWESOME theme and hop, lets get started cause by now you are probably gettin' a bit tired, mmkay? Don't worry, just 2 more awesome (in my opinion) people to go after this...(insert shoulder rub) You can do it!!!

If you didn't arrive here from Tenia Nelson's  blog (her stuff is always so clean and pretty) just head on back to DeNami Design's blog ta get back on track. Don't forget to leave those comments gals...DeNami Design is giving away two $20 gift certificates to two randomly picked people that have left comments along the hop, you have till January 9th @ 11:59pm PST!! So be sure to leave everyone a little love….we bloggers live for your comments and besides, who wouldn’t be excited about the possibility of winning a DeNami Design gift certificate??

Well here's what I came up with. Paulina gave me the idea of embossing on vellum and I have to say I love it! It really changes up the card. I've only used vellum to "tone down" a card...mainly patterned paper, never as a focal point. I can see much more of this in my future!


Okay, I'm keeping it short for once (you're welcome hehehe), so off you go to see something amazing from one of my crafting idols, Wendy Elliot. I can't wait to get by there myself!!

What a lovely card -
I love the grey as the neutral; it's so serene -
