July's Show & Share

Hello friends!
It gives me great pleasure to start the July's Show & Share for
I am amazed at the responses and would love to continue this monthly feature.
The main goal is to challenge you to create and share with our fellow card-makers.
I am hoping that all participants in this monthly feature can give each other some blog love, offer encouragement and get inspired! Are you gamed!?

This is how it works:
Each month, I will post the link on the 9th day of the month and it will end on the 29th day of the month. On the last day of each month, ONE winner will be announced.
To participant in this monthly feature: 
1. link up your new creation(s) and share it here in the gallery. You can use Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest... or blog for your projects.

2. you are most welcome to use WHATEVER in your stash to create. Old or new products are all welcome. You do not need to purchase new products to play. Use what makes you happy.

3. try out new techniques ,styles and products! This is your chance to show off what you make!

4. please link to my blog and mention that you are taking part in Virginia's "Show and Share" and use the blog logo if you can. I hope this will help spread the joy of "show and Share" with more card-makers!

5. please share no more than 4 projects within a month. Basically one project a week is good if you want to link as many as you can.

You can now find this monthly feature link at my side banners. Simply click on it and you can find this very post. I chose 9th day of the month as a cycle because I was born on Dec. 9th.

πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰For inspiration, I am sharing a card with non-white card stock. White card stock are readily available and easy to create with.

However, once in a while, we need to change it up a bit and create our own colored card stock.
