Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. Tonight's post is all about coloring and is a result of many of you asking me about the class that I took after this post went live..

I love orange things... like Baltimore Orioles and pumpkins and sunrises and sunsets but I don't own a single thing in that color. Until yesterday - more about that later :-) So... back to my card. As I am still making cards for... Read more →
