These two pictures were taken at Dow Gardens. By the way, if you've ever thought of visiting the gardens this is the best time of year to do it.
Here's a couple more cards from yesterdays card class. The above card is using Summer Smooch's DSP and the stamp set Turtle and Co. which is retiring at the end of May. The paper is so bright and colorful that it's great for kids cards. Let's clarify, the stamp set is retiring and the paper will be in the new catalog.
This card is one from Ronda's Creative Retreat. I never would have thought of using Pool Party and Sahara Sand together but look how beautiful they are.
And here's a present that I received at the Creative Retreat from Sandi Daily. It's a case for carrying my tools. Ruler, bone folder, scissors and adhesive. It's made out of the Springtime Vintage material which is on the retiring list at 70% off the original price. I've order three bundles of this pattern, now I just need to decide what I'm going to make with it.
And here's a sample of how close I can get with my new camera. It's just the bottom of one of the cards. I posted the whole card a couple of days ago. Again I have to say that I love this new camera.
