Hi Everyone. Quick post for you tonight. I saw this great sketch across at Case This Sketch I love the diagonal element in this sketch and it took me a little while to work out what I was going to do. I realized that I had a new die from Altenew sitting on my craft table waiting for me to unwrap. I lay the garland on the diagonal and then die-cut it out of 80# Neenah Solar White.

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. Our very talented and newest design team member is hosting our challenge this week and Kel has a great code word for us: This leaves the field wide open - so often infact that I couldn't decide which of the two cards I made to showcase :-) I ended up going with a little boy card - another one that is going off to Cards for Hospitalized Kids :-) I had such fun stamping the elements and then doing a quick color using copic markers. I do hope you will play along with us this week.... Read more →
