TST update and some inky fun!

Hi everyone and welcome to my second post of the new year!  Hope you've all had a great first week of 2012 and that your resolutions are still holding fast (although I'm still in the process of making mine so if you're a bit behind that's ok too ;)

Just wanted to let our blog readers know that since we have had to move our community site from Ning because of the costs, we've now opened a new group on Facebook called The Scrappy Tree Facebook Branch where we'll be able to share projects with you and chat about scrappy-related stuff, and hopefully it will be a place where people can share their projects with us too!  Julie has been posting a few scrappy questions over there so if you want to join in come and visit us :)
We're really excited about being able to interact more easily with everybody there as a lot of people now use Facebook, and of course you can also still find us on Twitter.  

My project for today is a birthday card using some scraps from my stash and also some of the new goodies I had for Christmas :) The 'H' and the coloured paper are scraps left over from my November Scrapagogo kit and there is also a journaling spot from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue ephemera pack and a Tim Holtz ticket tucked in behind these.  

The background to the card was made by spraying some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in Candy Apple Red and Irridescent Gold onto the blank card, and then stamping some swirls onto the card afterwards in Poppy Red Impress Ink.  I added a Dymo caption and some handwriting for the sentiment.

Happy Scrapping and we hope to see you soon!
