Tip of the Day:  Did you know you can add a transparent holographic look to your images?   I will write a detailed  tutorial on Stamper's Quest  for the weekly Watering Hole where you will find wonderful weekly stamping tutorials by a selected  Artistic  Guide!  It is a free online magazine where you will find many stamping techniques and many sources of inspiration.  I will make sure to post a link for you on my blog so you can view the tutorial.  Look at the card below and check out the wings very closely...   It is so much fun.... I hope you like it!

  2. Marie, Both of these cards are outstanding. You are so talented. Sorry for not making the rounds too much this summer, had two frozen shoulders which put a big damper on my card making and mostly sitting at the computer. I'm baaaaack now. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations.
