Forever in my heart!

Welcome to my new blog for all of my Stamping Getaway followers and greetings to those of you who are new. I am excited to share with everyone my new blog Paper Askew. I have come to the realization in the last few months that life is too short and that I am worth making every effort to make my dreams come true! Gee, what took me so long.. :) I really want to make designing paper items a priority in my life, because creating is one of my most favorite things! So this blog is my journey...lets see where I end up.

So, onto my first card on Paper Askew. This card started out as a swap that I was a part of. I did end up changing the layout a little for the actual swaps, because I had so much popping up on this card, the heart and the stars, a total of 13 would make mailing them a little difficult. I like how this card has lots of bright colors and it is completely versatile. You could put a ton of different sayings on this card, birthday, baby, cheer up...etc..etc. The swap was "Your favorite new Spring and Summer 2008 SU set". I chose the set "Independence Day", because it is so versatile. It contains this heart, the little stars and swirls, a firecracker which could be used as a candle as well, and a few more. Love it love it!! I hope all of my fellow swappers enjoyed the card I made. I can't wait to get their cards and share them with you.

I am off to spend a few more minutes with my hubby Al, today is our 13th anniversary. We had a wonderful weekend at the Broadmoor, but it was over way too soon.

Thanks for looking!
