Have a Beautiful Day

Have a Beautiful Day

Hi everyone!  I’ve got a CAS card for you.  Those that know me know that this is well outside of my comfort zone LOL!  I am so not a CAS girl but I thought I would put my best foot forward for those that love that quick and easy card.  There are no frills here but I think it’s so effective.  I must admit it was a struggle but I fought back my urge to embellish and to let the simple beauty of the stamp be the focal point, as hard as it was, I am glad I did.

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.

  1. That stamped/embossed daisy is magnificent! I love the rich feel you achieved with your embossing powders! Wow! And the flower is stunning. I couldn’t figure out if that was a die cut or an embossed panel until I read the tutorial. It’s stunning!
