Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday night. Updated 6/1: For updates on the retiring products - check this post. More about my blog title after my card....... I have a fabulous card for you tonight... well, I think it's fabulous anyway. I also can't take the credit for the layout or the design.

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday night. Oh, yeah! We are heading for a long weekend - and I have a few days off after that.... I am one happy lady! Tonight I have another card for you made during the splitcoaststampers virtual stamp night - so another card that took 45 minutes or less. This one took less. The challenge was to use the spotlighting technique. It's not a technique I use very often, but decided that the cat on the chair from the Peace Within set would be a great one to use with this technique. Here's what I came... Read more →
