I saw this beautiful spring card on the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog. Mary has used the ECD dies to make stencils.

On the IMAGINE Crafts/Viva Las VegaStamps! Mixed Media Blog hop, AIR Savannah O'Gwynn made a spectacular card panel that reminds me of art I would see in an art gallery. And it would be something most of us could try . . .

This is the link to Savannah's blog which includes a video tutorial; this is definitely something that is high on my "let's try it bucket list" . . .

That's all I have for tonight. Our staff enjoyed a great dinner at the Thai House while we discussed upcoming plans and activities at Art 'n Soul, all with YOU in mind.

I'll see you tomorrow when I share some great uses of the new Geninne designed stamps for Magenta, some of which are available at Art 'n Soul.

Who says we can't all get along?
