The CHA (Craft Hobby Association) convention is going on out in sunny California right now and some of the lucky attendees have been sending photos and info out to those of us anxious to see some of the "soon to be" released products. So far my favorites are the releases from Spellbinders. In addition to some really neat die shapes this year (16 in all) they have added a product to their line called Impressabilities. The photo at right tells what you can do with them as well as shows some examples. Just another thing to add to my wish list!

I also found out that Stampin'Up! will be releasing embossing folders later in the year. Probably when the next catalog comes out in August.

The card that I'm sharing today is for my great-nephew, Zachary, who will turn one year old on February 6th (my wedding anniversary). I apologize for the softness of the image - I was a little shaky this morning and didn't have time before leaving for work to take another.
I used the same wonderful background paper that I used on Saturday's card. It is so bright and cheerful. The stamp set is Stampin'Up!'s Toy Box. I purchased it several years ago to use in my son's boyhood scrapbook but since I've only completed about 10 pages this set has been hidden away, unused, until now. To finish off the card I used border elements from Stampin'Up!'s Baby Boy Simply Scrappin' Kit, stamped the sentiment in Brilliant Blue, and added white brads to hold the orange border in place. Very simple, very quick to make and just right for a sweet little boy.

Thanks for visiting and remember to take a little time to play today. It's good for the soul.
