International Art & Soul Challenge #30

Good Morning,

Happy & Blessed Easter!  I hope that you are spending this holiday with the ones you love!

It is challenge day over at International Art & Soul.  Theme # 30 - Card Type You Haven't Tried Before.  Isn't that a fun challenge?

I challenged myself and discovered that what I thought would be hard wasn't at all.

This is a technique I have never tried before.  I won a set of Gelatos, I never used them before, they were very fun to use.  The Stamps are from Close to my Heart the sentiment says "It's What's Inside That Counts - Happy Easter"

With all of the paper crafting I do, I have never made a pop out like this before, it intimidated me but it turned out to be easy peasy.

Okay gals, let's see what you can do to challenge yourself!  Let's have some fun over at International Art & Soul and while you are there, check out the cards my DT Sisters made!  They are sooo talented!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks - Challenge #396 Crazy Egg or ATG
Aud Sentiments - #200 Easter or Spring Sentiment
Fab n' Funky - Challenge #387 Easter
Pause Dream Enjoy - Challenge #13 Fun Fold Cards

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope to see "ya-all" over at International Art & Soul.

  6. On our visit to this place, we mostly stayed downstairs, where the beer and liquor selection was quite admirable. The staff at venue NYC really pride themselves on the beers and food they have.
