Oh-oh-oh! I'm late posting today! Had a fun sleep-over out of town with some great friends last night, didn't get home till late this afternoon. Retirement is GREAT!! (lol)

Today's Dream Team challenge is to use this sketch:

I created this card with this pretty Dreamweaver stencil (LL399), called an "antler snowflake." I paste embossed it on white cardstock with glossy white embossing paste, let it dry, then repositioned the stencil, used the Palette Glue Pad to pounce adhesive over the paste, then sprinkled Navajo Sky Metallic FX over the paste embossed image. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the top of the card, and an Amuse rubber stamp. I use Tulip® Glam it Up™ Iron On Crystals™ , glued on with Aleene's® Paper Glaze™, both by iLovetoCreate™.

I hope you'll have time to see the other wonderful creations on the Dream Team's blogs. The talent on this design team is truly AMAZING, and I learn so MUCH from them! Check out the links on my right hand sidebar.

On to something else...I was excited today to see one of my cards published in the newest issue of Scrap and Stamp. It's this one, once again with Art Journey stamps, paired with a computer generated sentiment.

Isn't this just a FABULOUS stamp!?

Now, on my last post, I asked readers to guess which design team I've been invited to join, and almost everybody guessed correctly (lol). It's ART JOURNEY, and I am just tickled pink. THANK YOU Louise! I'm in the company of some of the most incredibly talented stamp artists, using stamps which (until recently) have been way outside my own design box. But I've been enjoying them SO MUCH, and they force me to think about creating cards very differently from my usual style. Sooo...I did the thing, but I can't remember how to copy/save/post the picture of the generated number. The number that came up is 23. That's "Kristin," who said:
