World Cardmaking Day!

October 2nd was World Card Making Day!
Did you make any cards?
I got inspired from multiple sources

Michelle Zindorf -



Gretchen Barron - I pretty much cased this card from beginning to end, with the xception of colour which I used Elegant Eggplant, I also dropped the ribbon since I had none in the right colour scheme



Other Blogs - I've been collecting so many mental pictures lately I wouldn't even know where to begin guessing these styles came from
















and inside


With many of the these cards I finally found myself inking up my brayer, I LOVE it, evenly inked stamps EVERY time and so many other wonderful benefits - eg the background hills on the owl scene.

Don't forget to email me about the watercolour class if you're interested!

Next month I'm considering a brayer class!
