Sorry it has been so long...

I have been busy with work and been trying to create a video. We ran into technical difficulties making the video but I still have plans to create a few videos. Stay tuned for those.

I have also been busy stamping... Just didn't get a chance to post them

I created two different projects for the Hero Arts blog Challenge: The challenge this week is about learning. Looking at cards from when we first started and what we have learned along the way.

The second challenge is from Louise's blog. She hosts a Tuesday challenge and this week's challenge is grid tags.

For me the tag was a new area that I had never explored and was learned along the way along with the uses of scraps, embellishments and even grid cards... So this encompasses alot of things I have learned along the way in my stamping journey.

This was made from some beautiful scraps sent to me from Jacqueline. Thanks Jacqueline!

The second card is a thing I am still learning... How to use white effectively or negative space in my cards. I do tend to like my colors.. :)

So this was a little challenge for myself to keep my card in the whites/ivories...

  1. I DO LOVE that tag!! That is quite a beauty Sue! It's going in my faves over at the flickr gallery. Your white on white card is quite something too - so stylful!!

  2. The tag is beautiful Sue and uses my favourite colours but I do love the card and I have a Golden Wedding Anniversary coming up at the end of this month and I think this card might be my inspiration for the one I have to make.
