On my way...

In about 30 minutes I'll be driving down the airport and hopping on a plane to beautiful, sunny California for CHA! Can't wait! I'm already looking forward to seeing some of the new releases from Lily Bee, Jillibean and Websters in person. And I'm so excited to see folks I only see once or twice a year! It's always a fun time of year. :) Lots of photos to come. You know me!

I probably won't blog again until Sunday night or Monday night. We'll see how it goes with all the busyness and dinners and such. But I do promise photos.

In the meantime, thought I would share a card I made using some Lily Bee and SRM Stickers. Love the look of the rounded corners on squares. I don't know the technical or design term for these shapes but they are so simple and add some great detail to cards.

I backed each patterned square on a black piece of cardstock. It helped ground the design a bit more on the card. This is a great way to use up scraps too!

Well... I'm off! "See" you in California!
