i love bricks

One of my favorite things in the whole world is... bricks. Yes, really. I have brought bricks from Michigan to Arizona in my luggage. Ask my kids. I have a brick (paver really) from the street near the Detroit Railroad Station; one from a falling down house; and from a little building near my husband's grandmother's house, also in Detroit. When we got back to Phoenix, we took the Super Shuttle to get home. As the driver was taking the bags out of the back of the van, he asked what was in the bag. I don't think he believed me when I said "bricks". 

Anyway, the reason I am talking about bricks is because I recently created this "brick wall" card for Close to My Heart. I originally planned this for one of my swaps. I used the new Wings papers pack and the January Stamp of the Month, "Find Your Style". The process is to stamp an image and then cut it into rectangles and then re-piece with a slight space between the pieces. This makes a brick wall pattern.

I thought it came out very well, so I submitted it to Close to My Heart in their consultant "Make it from the heart" contest. Have to wait until the end of February to find out the winners of the contest. So, wish me luck. I hope you enjoy the card.


  1. I love it, very beautiful! Good luck in the contest!

  2. Thanks! This is the first contest I've entered for a scrapbook or card design.
