A Goodbye...

It was an extremely hard decision to make but I've been struggling with it for some time; shortly before Paperific - I stepped down from the Green Tara Design Team.

I have a number of favourite projects using Green Tara products on this blog and all over the web. I will continue to use the products in my art, as I find them versatile, easy to use, completely customize, and of course affordable!

With my current situation in my life and my other commitments - I feel it necessary to focus my energy, and my art elsewhere. I look forward to continuing on the Alison Ellis Design and Twiddleybitz Design Teams, and am also very excited to be having a guest spot on the Flourish With A Bling Design Team soon.

I wish Green Tara the best of success.

new GT

Hello everyone - while I've had a 'short' break I have created just a little...

This information was for the Green Tara Blog.  I have posted here as well for your viewing pleasure :-)

This project was inspired by the Lovely Man in my Life - Ian.

You Light Up My Life

I wanted to share this card with you today. I've used the fabulous black and gold pre-tied bows (a must if you are all thumbs and your hand-tied bows never look right like mine don't!!); an ivory cherry blossom; and some of the new twisted organza pearl in ivory.

I started with my black card base, added a background panel of embossed and inked cardstock. Stamped, punched, and inked my verse; Gathered my doily (crochet by kim - wagon wheel), ribbon, and flower - inked with vintage photo distress ink; and arranged them on the card. After inking my lamp post I adhered to the card and finished it off with the black bow.

One of the best things about the Green Tara products is the ability to make them fit any project with the least amount of effort!  Add a bit of distress ink to flowers and ribbons and they can perfectly match any project!

Thank you so much for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed the visit!
