I'm FINALLY back with my Runway Inspired Challenge card!  Check out the inspiration:


I am so excited that we joined forces with CAS(E) this sketch!  Make sure you go visit their blog and check out the cards from the DT, and when you play along, you should link up to both challenges!



I moved the sentiment over and added white space above the circle.  The flower is from the new Altenew Set - Magnolias for Her.

We have an awesome guest designer and a great prize from Ellen Hutson...so go ahead and play along!

Will be a bit late...

...with my Runway Inspired Challenge card.  I have been extremely busy the past few weeks (including last weekend's video game convention/cosplay, issues at work, and the newest Online Card Class!), and I have been struggling to keep up!

Things should be back to "normal" soon, but until then, please check out the Runway Inspired Challenge.  We have a great guest designer, a fantastic sponsor, and a really AWESOME collaboration with another challenge!

Altenew's Grand Opening!

Thank you again for all of the positive feedback and support (I know, I think I have already thanked you a bunch of times...but I want you to know how much I appreciate all of you!).

The Altenew shop is officially open for business!  To help kick things off, I thought I would post all of the cards I have made thus far with our new release, along with links for purchasing.  I think the best way to decide if you would like a set or not is to see it in action :)

thank you for your service

Before I get to my card, I just want to let you know that I have reduced the price of the boxes I am selling to $60, including shipping.   You can see the contents HERE on Facebook.

Today's card is a clean and simple one for sure!  It's also a special card that Dave and I will be sending to my grandfather (more on that below)



My grandpa will be visiting Washington, DC at the end of April, courtesy of the Honor Flight organization. The Honor Flight is a volunteer organization that honors war veterans by providing them an expense paid day trip to Washington, DC. There they visit the Iwo Jima Memorial, the WWII Memorial, have lunch at the Knights of Columbus and visit Arlington Cemetery.

It is a day the vets get to spend with other veterans of WWII, exchange stories, and be recognized for their contribution to our country. At the end of the day, while on the return flight to Florida, they will again be recognized individually through operation mail call. Operation Mail Call is an opportunity for friends and family to thank him for his service.  He will be handed an envelope containing all of the greetings that were sent on his behalf.

This one's for you, Grandpa!!  :)
