Ok, on with the good stuffs!! First up is Asela Hopkins newest set called 'The Journey'. I decided to use the old truck image, here is my card:



I had such fun making this card! I decided to take off the wood rails on the back of the truck and make it into a HOT ROD!! LOL! I was inspired by a truck we had seen at a truck show a few years ago and decided to try to copy it from memory. I colored it all with copic markers and made the flames on the hood, gave it a good wax job (crystal effects, lol) which you can't tell in the photo, but it SHINES! I also used Gina's technique tutorial from last week to use nesties to emboss only on your card. Here is the link to that on StampTV My hubby only dreams about a truck like this...his is a LONG way from looking this good! LOL!

Next up is Gina's One Free with three set called 'Many Wishes'...here is my card I did with that set:


I made a card, sort of a sympathy card or a card for someone that might be going through a rough time...I used another set, Tropical flowers combined with Many Wishes, both stamped in black, sponged some black on the bottom, then, I tried to make the sky look like one of those gorgeous sunsets you see that has pink, purple and blue in it (just swiping my ink pads back and forth)...reminding you the beauty of God's world all around us! I know I have seen some of these sunsets that just makes me stop and think and feel the power of God, and will give me such a feeling of comfort from Him! I hope to have conveyed this in this card to someone!

Ok, that's all I have for now! But tonight at the release party I will have at least a couple more samples! And now for more gorgeous eye candy, here are the links for all the other DT:

Love both your cards... especially the one with the dandelions. You did a beautiful job on the sunset. The recipient of your card is sure to feel your love of the Lord in this card. I know I did. Thank you for your testimony of Him too. I always feel the same way when I see either the sunset or sunrise.

Amazing! I love how you adapted the stamp to be a hot rod. It looks so real with your incredible colouring. WOWza! and the pseudo sympathy card is so elegant & peaceful. Just LOVEly! :O)
