Holidays!

While my family is on holidays I have saved some really neat cards to post while I am away. Some of them are from the Dirty Dare challenges that were on SCS a while ago. That gave me a great opportunity to save some ahead to show you while I am on the road with my family to see the Grand Canyon.

This was a sketch challenge as well as a cracked glass challenge. If you click on my photo you can get a better image of the "cracked" part. I stamped elements from "It's Elemental" from MFT for the background. The main image is stamped on watercolor paper then coated a couple times with UTEE, then stuck in the freezer and pulled out to crack it. It is a fun technique I should do more often. This card was sent to my blog candy winner! Be sure to check back as I will be posting when I can.

I also have my sneak peek all ready to go for My Favorite Things, you will love it! Have a great day!

Hi Sherrie,
If you are on your trip hope it is great! I just wanted to share with you that I posted a card using the wonderful Basic Grey paper you sent me in the blog contest. It is the "Charming" post. Deb
