Sorry I disappeared...I went to a cropping retreat for the past few days! It was so nice. Although I really don't like going to them because I feel like I have to pack my entire craft room. I did almost that. I took a lot of stuff with me and really didn't use a third of it, but I did a lot of crafting and had the best time. I have about six cards to share, but not all in this post. I'll share over the next couple of days.
I want to say, WELCOME to all my new followers and I want to thank each and everyone of you for all the fabulous comments you have made. I am loving all your feedback. I am also enjoying visiting your blogs and seeing your fabulous are work. You all inspire me!!
On to my first card. I am so loving Flouishes challenges. I am hoping to spend time in their shop this week. I have a huge wish list!! This week's Timeless Tuesday #126 Challenge is to emboss. I used my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder to create this beauty. Again, this Strawberries set is another set I bought a couple of years ago and just inked it this weekend. I loved coloring this and using a few different reds, purples, and even black to get the shading I was looking for.
My next challenge is to work on better photography. The greens in the leaves didn't photo with the shading I see on the card. I am going to a friends tomorrow and she's introducing me to a professional photographer and I can't wait to get some lessons.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you again tomorrow. Have a fabulous week!!
