Inspired by Sandy Gordon and my twist on an Escape project:

Here is the last peek at January's card kit projects. I don't like to give all the surprises away! There are more cards included, but I just had to share this one. If you look close at the frog on the pink 'toadstool' you will see that she is a girl. After all look at those long luscious lashes! This card was inspired by a cutie card that my friend, and fellow Angel , Sandy Gordon made. Thanks so much for the inspiration Sandy!

Last weekend was TAC's leadership/winter retreat. This year it was called Escape. I had a great time and really did Escape to relax and be revived. I spent the weekend with some Angels very near and dear to my heart! Hi Kimberly, Leslie, Awna, and Avis! I miss you all muchly!

One of my very favorite parts of the weekend was doing the make and takes with Kimberly. She and I decided we are sister stampers. We went from table to table together stamping our own twist on all the projects. We started out at first side by side making the same modifications, inking edges or adding foam tape for pop. After a few tables we got seperated. Well, we were at the same table working on the same project, but we were sitting with a few people between us. Because we were no longer side by side, we started making our own modifications to the project. We would then show eachother the finished personalized project. This have FAITH card was one of my favorite projects of the whole weekend! What twist did I put on it to make it my own? Well I inked the edges with VersaMark, stamped the sentiment above the fish, and instead of using the scrap of tan cardstock provided by TAC for the fish, I stamped it on an extra Amberly Grace tag and cut out. This is just one of many uses I learned for all those beautiful tags that come with the paper collections! I never seem to use those babies. I think the Amberly Grace pattern on the fish adds just the right texture and detail.
Supplies Used to create this card quick card:
Something's Fishy
My Spiritual Journey
Fancy Curls
Amberly Grace Soar With It Collection
Winchester Collection Cardstock
Palette Burnt Umber

Thanks for stopping by to read! I gotta get stamping some birthday cards. See you next time.
