You make the world a better place...



I've been so busy with Design Team work that so many of my other supplies are horribly neglected.  I decided to work on inking up and using the things that I have...and I have a lot.  I recently adopted the Stampin' Up Starburst Sayings.  I knew that they would ink  up wonderfully and the dies are versatile.  I used Hero Arts Gold embossing powder.  The Stampin' Up Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper has been calling my name...so many fabulous patterns.  I fussy cut those poinsettia blooms from one of the sheets in that set.  Both of the Stampin' Up products are retired but Tonya is my Stampin' Up demo.

I was inspired by TGIF Challenges:


The TGIF Challenges Design Team is super inspirational.

Looking forward to my crafty friends to come over this morning!

This has been a really long week here in the United States...lots of changes to come.  Let's ALL make the world a better place❤️
