This week Crafty Secrets invited me to be a member of their design team. Since this is my favourite stamp company I feel greatly honoured. I have an enormous learning curve ahead of me as I am technologically challenged and CS has moved ahead with the times and gone digital. This week my printer should arrive and tomorrow morning I have a tech support tutorial at my house to teach me what I'm doing. As I'm not yet up to snuff this one was done the old fashion way....with stamps!
This card is for Mary Jane who has suffered a stroke and the theme was gardening and flowers.
I used elements from 2 stamp sets: "Garden Girls" and "Fairyland". The images were stamped, coloured, and cut out. The yellow flowers each have a rhinestone in the centre.

CONGRATULATIONS ELIZABETH!!!! Your gallery is a sight for saw eyes, I can't wait to see what you do with Crafty Secrets. Postage to Australia is so expensive, so recently I have gone down the "digi" road, and I am loving it. Now about this card.... perfect as always, I love it!!!

This is BEAUTIFUL and sure to make Mary Jane smile! I want to extend a HUGE WELCOME to our wonderful Crafty Secrets team and I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful works-of-art. I have taken a peek through your gallery and WOW! Awesome designs! Can't wait to see more! Good luck with becoming more tech savy ... it will be overwhelming at first but just take one step at a time (take lots of notes) and you'll do just fine!! Again ... WELCOME!!

How exciting for you to be a member of the design team of your favorite stamps! Congrats! Oh, and I don't know anything about digital stamps either, so don't feel bad. Love the trellis of flowers which takes the eye right to those 2 cute little in love birdies! Such a beautiful summertime card~
