Country Flowers and the Tearing Technique


Country Flowers and the Tearing Technique

This is not quite a "5-minute" card but the little bit of extra time is worth it!  And once you get rolling, you can make several of these in a jiffy!

There are some beautiful stampset and dies heading our way in the new May-April 2024 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  As a demo, I get to order in advance and I love this perk.  The other perk of being a demo is the amazing community of women (and men) that surround us.  When my kids were little, my world revolved around them...just keeping them alive was a full time job, but I had a full time job too! This didn't allow a lot of time to garner friendships or even sustain the friendships I had in my younger years.  When the kids left the house, I felt a void. Don't get me wrong, the husband and dogs were great, but I needed more.  The Stampin' Up! community has been such a blessing to my life.  It really is about more than inks and stamps.  Many of these ladies have become my best friends. Why am I telling you this sappy story?  Stampin' Up! has a  special "join" offer starting on May 1st and I am extending the invitation to join our community - not just for the discounts, but for the friendships.  **See more info about the special offer at the bottom.

Okay, but for now, let's put the tissues away and get on with this card!
