Class is in session at The Stamp Market!
I'm enjoying the class I'm taking at The Stamp Market today ... here to show and share my work on card #1 and #2!
Card #1 is made pretty much following Amy's awesome instruction. For card #2 on right Amy had a cute pop up inside the card - but I thought there was just enough dimension on the front so I just went my own way on the front - aren't they cute? We were told that these supplies will be available to everyone soon!
Just us Girls #671 Photo or Mood Board
There is no denying that creating cards using a Mood Board or photo has always been a favorite of mine ... thanks Elizabeth for creating this gorgeous board to inspire us all!
Hello again, my friends - week three as a Just us Girls guest designer was a delight!
I asked for an enlargement of the board, so I thought I'd share it with you -

Color Hues #60 Blue and turquoise!
How could I allow the day to pass without playing cards at Color Hues #60? Especially when one of my favorite humans is hosting!!!
Marcia, only you can make me play with blue and enjoy it - of course one of our favorite Birdy Brown bathing beauties had to jump into the pool!

More from Pinkfresh!
There is sooo much to love in this fabulous prize package I won recently from Pinkfresh Studio - well I have to share, right?
Remember my first card? It left me with such a beautiful scrap of aura foil that I had to use it... I found that blending a little ink over the panel can fill in any of those areas that don't foil perfectly when using the negative foil plate. This time I reached for an ink that 'matched' my cardstock.

Pinkfresh Studio March 2023 Challenge
It was such a wonderful surprise to win the whole shebang from Pinkfresh Studio in January - there were understandable reasons why it took until last week for that prize to arrive! Kelly from the PF warehouse even called me personally - when is the last time THAT ever happened? It seemed fitting to start my journey into this massive prize with a thank you for Kelly. Why not use it for an entry into their March 2023 challenge?
- I did a little fussy-cutting, and
- added some glossy accents to a portion of my thank you sentiment - included in the stamp set from the Floral Border suite of products.
- The image was hot foiled, and stencil colored before die cutting.
- A few of their lovely gems for the final touch!

Double D March 2023 - Green!
Everything green in my view is 'leftover' - you know: that not so pretty green of old grass? So I took my card-cue from the bottom left corner of Double D's March 2023 - Green Challenge mood board:
