The SUO challenge this week is feminine cards....I think almost every card I make is a feminine card......I really shy away from man cards until I actually NEED one.  I kind of cased one of my own cards when I made this one - one I did several years ago -with the bold outline lines which go so well with white embossing.  I actually embossed these in white ON the colored paper and then just shaded with a sponge dauber.  A wonderful technique if you hate to color- which is certainly NOT the case with me, but a lovely look none the less. :) Happy Tuesday everyone!! Happy Stamping!! Until next time, Karen

The SUO challenge for this week is to make a Sympathy card.  I decided to play with this set again as I used it last week when I was hostess for the color challenge.  I like this card, but not as much as the one I made last week.  It's a fun set though, if you like to color. :) Succulents are crazy IN right now.  What's up with that?  They've been around for 100's of years but suddenly they are EVERYWHERE.  Anyhow I hope you like my succulents.  Happy Tuesday everyone!! Until next time, Karen
