Also the great internet shops with so many supplies, Simon Says Stamps. Lynda's Stamp Gang, Scottie Crafts and Scrapbooing Downunder to mention some. I also have learn't a lot from Tim Holtz's technique videos plus I want to thank Kate Palmer for her help and the amazing technique videos she does with all the Lynda's Stamp Gang products amazing and so beautiful when using them with your card making. With Simon Says Stamps I have just found out that they have weekly challenges so I am going to entry this weeks challenge "Anything Goes". Now I will upload some of my cards for all to see.
