52 weeks and some cards

Got some cards and last weeks page in my 52 week album to share.
Last week I got some yummy scrap raks in the mail from two of the nicest girls I have meet online. Missy Mandy and Missy Julie2 both part of the STM team.Mandy gave sent me some music papers and some Prima note paper too when she heard that I missed out on getting some because I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted it or not and Julie found some cute American milk bottle caps a while back and sent me over one with some ribbon too. A big thanks girls.
I've yet to take this weeks photo. Will be doing that tomorrow as something will be revealed that will be sure to make Missy A's day.

Card Postioning systems

I played aroundwith the latest skecth last night and here is my take on it.I used some My minds eye on this and I ended up flipping it on it's side .



I stumbled across another card challenge blog thanks Jenn from Purple Onion and played along there too.The theme was trees so I pulled out an old favorite Hero Arts stamp and combined it with a new Basic Grey set that I picked up yesterday and some more My minds eye.


The Therapy cybercrop will be happening this weekend too along with the retreat. I will be missing out on all the fun at the retreat so the girls that will be there can you all remind Mandy that I WILL STILL NEED TO HAVE SOME ROOM AT THE TABLE FOR WHEN I COME TO SCRAP WITH YOU ALL IN MY DREAMS. Have heaps of fun girls. You can find the clues for the cyber crop here along with thw list of bingo words too. Some of the girls at the retreat will have their laptops on hand so it is bound to be fun. Craig never did sort out that web cam for me.


Over at Pages in time there is goingto be some national scrapbookingday challenges too if you want to pop on in. I will be as it is bound to be some fun.

Well that's it from me for now.

Till tomorrow when I will be back to share my ASJ page and Asher's secret thatnks for poppin g in, any comments and happy scrapping/card making.

Gorgeous cards ... I really love the muted tones you used on your tree card ... and the combination of trees with the distressed landscape is perfect.

I love how simple the colors are, and yet how effective. The shadow look turned out great.
