I intended to use it for the Raspberry Suite challenge too, but forgot to use vintage cream as a base (as opposed to my usual white base). So now it lacks one of the challenge colors. I may do another similar card for that challenge. I used CM heart punches, PTI white, chocolate and lemon tart CS, PTI polka dot basics DP, SU! border punch, Sissix polka dot embossing folder and PTI aqua mist ribbon.
The next one is a birthday card using the SU! Circle Circus stamp set. It is one of my favorite stamp sets.I used CTMH ink in Ocean, Bubblegum and Hydrangea, PTI white CS, SU! Bermuda Bay CS and SU! scallop punch. The sentiment is CTMH Happy Birthday Set. I added pearls to the center to add a little bling.

- No more procrastination
- I will be more organized
- Craft-related: I will use the stuff I have before buying more
The last one is particularly hard since gorgeous products are being released from every imaginable company. But I have simply no more space. So, it is use it up or give it to the kids.
Now for some projects I did last year. The next two are sort of experimental artist journal-type scrapbook pages.
I was thinking about planting hope. The text in the signs is a poem from Christina Rosetti, Hope:
Hope is like a harebell trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose the joy of all the earth;
Faith is like a lily lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose the world's delight;
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.
To make the page, I used assorted CTMH patterned papers, CTMH stamps, SU! cardstock, SU! craft inks and SU! white embossing powder. The tree is a Hero Arts background stamp.The above page is done with the same materials, but using SU! and CTMH stamps.
