A "Winnie & Walter" day today!

I'm shaking in my card-making boots right now, but also incredibly thankful to Shay and Julie for inviting me to play cards with them.  Isn't that unbelievable? 

If you know anything about me by now, you'll know that I love to use words, and often do - outside, and inside, and in my own quirky way!  Winnie & Walter's "Big, Bold, and..." sets give me the perfect word stamps every time I reach for them!  Now I have a few of their wonderful cutaways - YAY!  So I'll place them front and center this week, and next!

Here is a little sneak peek of one of my cards, where I 'accentuate the positive'  and use W&W words to create a personal sentiment ... [please visit the W&W Blog to see me 'reinvent the negative' =]


Thank you, Shay and Julie, for allowing me to show my favorite ways to use your fabulous products!  SO much fun! 

I do hope you'll like what you'll see over at the W&W blog today, and that your visit will inspire you to use your own Winnie & Walter words today. 

Thank you my friends, as always, for stopping by!

PM to Shona - you are one tough act to follow, my fabulously talented friend!

WOO HOOOO! I'm so thrilled that Julie and Shay are shining the Spotlight on you because if anyone knows how to accentuate the positive - in ever so many ways - it's YOU! Super congrats, my dear friend, on a most well-deserved showcase, and what a delightful array of cards you've brought to dazzle and delight us all! Planning ahead to use both the positive/negative of dies is brilliant, and something I so rarely think about in my own creations! The die cut 'Friend' and "Hello" have never looked so beautiful as they do in your cards, and the addition of the rose, flourishes and boat, not to mention your variations of subtle embossing, add such impact! Wonder and awe, Michele...wonder and awe! You ROCK!

And, now to have such an amazing honor of a 'Spotlight'...I am so impressed, and you are so deserving of both honors! I love every one of the cards you showcased on the W&W blog, especially this stunning soft blue and white beauty! The vellum sailboat is so charming and I love how you created the waves...it's just really pretty!
You are such an amazing card artist, Michele, and I'm so happy for you that W&W have acknowledged your talent! Sending big hugs your way!!!
