One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Beyond Background Basics ~ Altenew Acadamy Class

Don't you LOVE friends who enable you?
MY BFF told me she signed up for this class, and even though I had received a notice about it, I really hadn't done anything about it, maybe because of the foot surgery, either way once I knew she was taking it, well, I simply had to take it also! And I am so glad I did.
Lydia Evans has 6 wonderful videos showing different ways of using yur stamps to get a cool background.

Stamps & Dies: Altenew Peony Bouquet; PTI Graceful Greetings
inks:  Altenew Summer Afternoon  cubes
Viva Pearl Pen, thread, vellum

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. WOW...this is GORGEOUS Colleen! So soft and pretty and definitely eye catching! Love it! :0)

  2. Beautiful card! Love your sentiment and how you matted it on vellum. Pretty!

  3. This is a gorgeous sympathy card. I don't think I've ever used yellow but this makes me rethink that. These inks are beautiful and the flowers are so pretty. Great card.


I appreciate you taking time to stop by and leaving a comment!
