DT Spotlight – Hip Hop Froggie

Hello! It's my turn over at Kitty Bee Designs' Team Spotlight and this month I thought I'd get tropical.

Everything Altenew

Hello! This card would have to be one of the "busiest" cards I've ever made. So busy, in fact, I'm left wondering if there's a little too much going on in this design, especially after making a few CAS designs recently. I wanted to make a card that used multiple Altenew products for this month's Altenew … Continue reading Everything Altenew

Saving My 60th Wedding Anniversary Hard Work

Hello! Last week I made my parents' 60th wedding anniversary card, putting all the effort into the hidden slider on the front.

My pet parrot … Continue reading Saving My 60th Wedding Anniversary Hard Work
