Thanks for the nice comments and great ideas, ladies.
My mother and sons think I'm quite clever with the cards and scrapbook pages.
But if they could see all the wonderful, beautiful, breath-taking cards and layouts on the Internet, they'd know what a talentless hack I really am! LOL
Just about everything in my gallery was posted for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge. I was grateful for the challenge because it forced me to try new things.
A few are from last Friday's Virtual Stamp Night Challenge. The challenge was given and we had 45 minutes to complete the card. It was all I could do to cut, stamp and color or decorate a simple card. Others whipped out some truly beautiful, elaborate cards during their 45 minutes.
Anyway, I guess it's all a matter of perspective. In the meantime, I'm going to follow the suggestion to "case" other members cards.
BTW fairsinger, I LOVE that Michael J. Fox quote! I may need to put that on a scrapbook page as a reminder.
