We will focus on both Fall and Christmas holiday for our DIY projects. Lots of the items you will have on hand and a few you can find either online or at your local craft store. No worries though the class blog will be available to you for one year.

Hi!  Just playing around with the Hero Arts/Studio Calico Alphabet Pattern background stamp.

I stamped it with white acrylic the texture and distressed look it creates!

I like to have thank you cards on hand for teachers and I think this one will be perfect.

thanks for your kindness

Thanks to a little enabling from some fellow crafters, I broke down and bought the new Autumn Seasonal Distress Inks.  And I'm so glad I did...they are gorgeous! 

Here's a card I created using them along with the Hero Arts Real Leaves and Thanks For Your Kindness stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!
