I Love You-Calyptus

Hey Mate!

I'm playing a little catch up today.  I made this card back in March, but it was lost in the shuffle. I just found it in my stamping box.  I made this at the peak of the wildfires in Australia.  It was just breaking our hearts to hear the stories of koalas burning in the wildfires.  I'm so glad the fires are under control.   This was my way of sending a big hug to all the koalas.

Materials:
Koala Stamps are from MFT (retired)
the background die is from Memory Box

Pink: R30, R00

Blue was sponged on with Tumbled Glass

Chasing Rainbows Tutorial

I may have gone a little nuts. I created 40 rainbow panels with the Rainbow Turnabout stamp. It was a fun challenge to figure it out. I love the results. I created two videos if you like to follow along. Grab a cup of coffee... and buckle up. This is a long post! Check out the two part videos:

Hugs to you all,
