News and a Christmas Card!

Hey there everyone! I have another Lili of the Valley Christmas card to show you and a bit of news below.

Now, I know you think I say this all the time, but this is one of my FAVORITES from the release! It is called "Festive Post". So very cute and oh how well does the postcard from the Christmas Icons set go with it?  Which one is your favorite from the release?

I used some of the paper from the Classic Christmas Pad.  The little fence is a Magnolia Doohickey and I used some of that Snow Tex stuff to have it snow covered.

Now for my news! I am super excited to share with you a new video series I have created at Scrapbook News and Review on coloring with distress inks!  I have used the super sweet stamp "Peggy" by Wee Stamps as my example for coloring.  In these videos I will share, very slowly, how you can work this medium to achieve results like the image above.  If interested, just click HERE and it will take you directly to my class.


As always, I sure do appreciate the visit! I hope everyone is having a super awesome Summer so far.

P.S. If you watch the Bachelorette.....................what the heck????????? hahaha! I'm not sure I can wait to see next week!

Hugs, Dena
