Congrats, Leesa, please send me an e-mail for your postal address. I will send you this in the next few days! Thank you, everyone, for entering. I am truly touched and encouraged with your positive feedback. I'm also sharing a quick card that I made in 30 min for the Hero Arts Scramble Challenge (details here).
CELEBRATE!
Another fun card that I made was to use a stamp in an unconventional way. Take a look at this picture and you'll see what I mean.
You're in My Thoughts'
Now you look at your stamps, can you see a different ways of using it? Check Vicky's video for more inspiration. I was pleasantly surprised that my card was featured in Lily Pad Cards. Have a great week ahead!
