It's Been a While...

...but I'm back now.  I've been playing with my my new Sizzix Eclipse since I got it a few weeks ago and have been having a blast.  It's soooooo much better than my old faithful Cricut Expression (which I will probably use until it just dies) and I've learned about a wonderful new place called SVGcuts. Most of the papers that I use have been downloaded from Pixel Scrapper.  If you've not been to either of these sites you have to check them out.  I may never buy a piece of scrapbook paper again!  I've been going wild making all kinds of birthday and holiday cards and such.  Here's a few of my newest creations

ABOUT ME

My Photo
MISSOURI, United States
I'M A REGISTERED NURSE (FOR 28 YEARS) AND CURRENTLY WORK IN A SMALL BUT VERY PROGRESSIVE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT. AS I SAY IN MY HEADER, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN INTRIGUED WITH PAPER CRAFTS. I WAS IN A VERY BAD AUTO ACCIDENT IN APRIL 2006 AND BECAME EVEN MORE ACTIVE IN THIS HOBBY WHILE I WAS STILL SITTING IN A WHEELCHAIR. I LOVE TO CREATE AND SHARE MY IDEAS AND I HOPE THAT YOU WILL FIND MY PAPER CREATIONS NOT ONLY DIFFERENT, BUT USEFUL FOR YOU.
