    Lovely card. I see lots of Jill Foster influence in how you made it. I saw a card almost like this done by Jill on the Mementos blog last month. I like how you took that card and put your own twist on it. The poinsettias are so beautiful.

      Hi CC, thanks for commenting. I love Jill’s work and I always read her posts and admire her cards. She is amazing and I even had the pleasure to meet her in person last summer. So yes, she keeps inspiring me all the time and I am sure her influence is shown in my cards. I am also happy that she is reading my posts this week and I hope she likes my cards! Hugs!

  14. These are so gorgeous (the pointsetta stamps) and your card is so very lovely, I just have a question. When you did the quick coloring going direct to paper, do you worry that the ink pads will pick up the other color you went over? Thanks in advance, I learn SOOO much from studying your work 🙂
