Now, I'm not going to leave you today without some crafty goodness to look at... but I thought we'd reminisce just a bit...




My very first blog post featuring this card for my son's birthday. Simple and quick... perfect for a teenage boy! Which reminds me... he has another birthday coming soon! I better get to work!




My first post as a new Can You Case It Design Team Member. I loved the background on this card!




This one is a favorite of mine. I made it for a CASology challenge. So CAS and coffee themed!! How could I not love it!




And this last one is my absolute favorite! I was stuck on the design until I decided to do a galaxy background and then the wheels started turning and I really love the way this one turned out!!

That's it for today, but remember to follow my blog so you don't miss my first technique tutorial!

Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
